The Pressure is Adam R. Garcia. I do art direction, graphic design, creative consultancy and illustration under the studio name The Pressure.

Currently, I live in Portland and work as a graphic designer at Nike Sportswear. In my spare time I work as the creative director for Minneapolis' event/crew Wants VS Needs and as an art director for various record labels. I do editorial illustration for national and local publications and work with small businesses and musicians doing branding and consultancy.

From October 2007 until October 2009, I was a senior designer at 160over90, a branding agency in Philadelphia. Before that, I was Art Director at the record label Rhymesayers Entertainment in Minneapolis.
