A first kiss.

The smell of a fire on the first cool fall evening.

A child’s laughter. A mother’s regret.

Loud music. Slow dancing. The look of a new lover across the room.

Powerful women. Football on a Monday night. Fireworks. Stevie Nicks.

A father asking his son, “Is everything ok?”

Everything not being ok.

Quarantine. Blind ideology. Activism. Election nights.

A forgotten birthday. A surprise celebration.

Losing a friend. Praying for something better. Fear of failure.

Mentors. Marching. Suffragettes. Black Lives Matter.

People singing from their windows.


People move us.


Ignite human connection.

People-Places-Things Hypothesis (PATH)

Adeo's foundational PATH exploration builds on research, data and force analysis to define the people and groups our clients will influence and the people who influence them (People), the communication strategies and mediums that will connect and resonate with these people and groups (Places) and the resulting actions we will drive (Things).

Our people

We do great work because we are experienced communicators, writers, organizers, digital strategists, designers and political operatives. We do big things because we are thinkers, creatives, trusted advisors, problem solvers and truth-tellers. The relationships we build with and for our clients exist well beyond a single project or contract. And just like with our closest friends and allies, we internalize their challenges, celebrate their wins and pour our hearts into their projects.
