Artist/Owner Martin Kornick, on vacation in Breckenridge CO. and pictured with Keith Emerson & Carl Palmer of Emerson Lake & Palmer.
"During my illustrious career as a musician I have had the opportunity to have worked with the worlds best artists such as Hipgnosis, William Neal and HR Giger to enhance the music I have written over the last 50 years and for them to embrace it visually within their realm. Martin Kornick (Man In The Mountain), who did the artwork on my latest album is a visionary that, like the above artists, works from his heart and soul. He realized in his artistry the essence of my music." – Keith Emerson
A bit about Man In The Mountain
Artist & Designer for Print & Web
Man In The Mountain is the alias of NW Chicago area progressive artist, Martin Kornick. Offering a wide range of personalized "boutique" web, print, design, and art services for businesses, as well the music/entertainment industry. Succinctly what I do is fully design and implement a branding/marketing strategy for individual businesses, that unifies print & web mediums. I develop design solution quickly and easily, while cutting through the confusing tech talk, costly gimmicks, and 3rd party packages. I also am a noted freelance artist, capable of providing fantastically unique artwork, illustrations & cartooning for just about any medium imaginable. This puts me in a pretty unique position as an artistic provider.
With a 30 year history in design, art production, publishing, & web, I very much live and breath art & graphic design. I have managed projects for the nations largest school book publishers, designed ads for large retailers, as well as made artistic impressions for rock'n roll icons. While most designers specialize in one area or another - because of my lengthy experience - I am versed in an exceptionally wide variety of design software & mediums, that is well above the curve of most designers in the field. I worked all sides on art production, illustration, photo retouching, file prep & design - plus managed large projects & staffed art departments, which taught me the entire process from concept to completion.
What I will do for you at Man In The Mountain, is give you the personal attention you demand for all your commercial art & web needs, with a seasoned artistic eye that normally is found only at a big agency or pre-press company. I will tie together your company brand image on print, onto the web as well. "One look" that is uniquely your own.
Man In The Mountain is located in Cary IL, where I have lived with my family since 1994. My wife is a speech pathologist working within Special Education, my eldest son currently is attending college in Chicago, and a young daughter who is very active with cheerleading, dance, and gymnastics. I am a proud member of the the Cary Grove Area Chamber of Commerce, the Lighthouse Networking Group, and also serve clients everywhere worldwide, as I work extremely well via the web.
