Adam Wells is a visual communications expert who works with clients to evoke their brand visually and experientially through environmental graphics, wayfinding, and signage. He works with client stakeholders and project team members to understand the unique characteristics and context of an architecture or space to thoughtfully develop creative solutions that connect the project to occupants and visitors.
Adam also has extensive experience as a marketing professional, and supports DLR Group’s business development staff and project teams in creating business-to-business collateral pieces across the firm. He uses his design skills to help practice leaders convey the DLR Group brand values to diverse audiences around the world, with experience in proposal and presentation development; traditional and new media communications; photography coordination; and storytelling.
“The best part about my job is being able to be involved with a variety of tasks and a variety of people. One day I might be creating materials for a pursuit, the next working with an architect on graphic design options for a project, and the next I may be on-site directing a photo shoot. Each day has its own rhythm.”
Some of Adam’s most recent work includes design for the CenturyLink Center in Omaha, Neb. (collaborating with project teams on concessions identities and signage serving as wayfinding cues within high-volume spaces), Tahoma High School & Learning Center in Maple Valley, Wash. (integrating large format graphics, branding the facility with local historical imagery) and a confidential international project in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia (implementing a wayfinding+signage package that organized multiple buildings in a campus setting).
Adam has also collaborated with DLR Group business development teams in working with The United States Air Force Academy, University of Nebraska, Oklahoma State University, University of Texas, University of Southern California, Pinnacle Bank Arena, and the Omaha Storm Chasers.
