James Adamè

Director of Design



James Adamè sees things. Often before anybody else does. He sees the potentials. He sees how disparate elements can be put together to make an emotional design statement.

He has used insight throughout his career as an art director, designer and design director.

During his career he has successfully applied his vision to numerous national and global brands including Carnival Cruise Lines, Dunkin' Donuts, Jack Daniels, Liberty Mutual, Major League Baseball, Ocean Spray, Radio Shack, Truth, Tyson, Bank of America and Volvo.

As Chevrolet Director of Global Design for Commonwealth//McCann, James lives in pursuit of the next big thing, the new exciting adventure, and the power of continuous innovation.

Whether he is creating a logo, a 3D animation, a global style guide, a 60-foot long wall mural depicting the history of Camaro or a complete design language, you can see his vision in everything he touches. He’s also challenging his talented staff to push beyond themselves to the next horizon.

“Inspire. Educate. And be kickass.” —James A.
