After graduating from the University of Texas in 1996 with a Communications and Leadership Studies diploma Adam went on to an award winning, seven year run with legendary Texas advertising agency GSD&M. In 2002, he co-founded Butler brand development studio. His studio has led brand defining work for Austin FC, College Board, Texas Children’s Hospital, Truth Initiative, Chariot Energy, and a host of beloved Texas brands.
He is a founding board member of Farmshare Austin, a member of Austin Park Foundation’s Groundbreakers and currently serves the Shield Ranch Foundation as a fundraising steering committee member. Adam is a grateful husband to his wife of 17 years, Julie Butler and together they are the proud parents of three boys; Wilson, Davis and Noah. When not at work you’ll find Adam outside; most often on a bicycle, swimming in the sacred waters of Barton Springs, or somewhere in the Texas state parks system.
