About Adam Black Media
Adam Black Media, established in 2011, was born as a result of a long-existing passion for technology mixed with a somewhat random and unexpected education. Adam, the owner and operator of Adam Black Media, was always known to have a technological “savvy”, spending much of his younger years correcting electronic issues in his own home and his neighbor’s homes. At 12, Adam began regularly attending church and became a member of his local church’s production team (he was the youngest member of the team by around 20 years). Operating cameras, learning how video & audio signals worked, and ultimately learning to direct productions for the largest church in his area became a way of life.
At 18, Adam realized that his passion for technology would be fused with a newfound passion for graphic arts. While pursuing a degree in medicine, it became clear that Adam’s path would shift to a focus in the arts and technology, although this was not expected at the time. While in college, Adam worked bi-vocationally as a youth pastor as well as the paint department manager for a well-known signage company located in Trussville, Alabama named Bell Company.
While at Bell Company, Adam would often spend his lunch breaks sitting under a seasoned graphic designer, learning everything that time would allow. As a hobby, Adam began creating vector and bitmap layouts for signs, vehicle wraps, vinyl displays and more. During his tenure at Bell Company, Adam eventually shifted in his role from being the paint department manager to an on-staff graphic artist until 2013. During this period of time, Adam also transitioned from a role in youth ministry to serving as the Director of Production for the same church. Adam would spend 11 years total serving in a technological role for 2 mega churches in Birmingham, Alabama, leading responsibilities for several venues, dozens of computers, and over 100 volunteer Production Team members.
From 2011-2019, Adam always worked bi-vocationally, laying the foundation for what would become the Adam Black Media of today. The beginning days of ABM were entirely focused on graphic arts and videography, and later became more heavily focused on all forms of marketing and website development. Today, ABM serves 50+ clients, in 30+ industries, across the southeast of America.
In addition to serving our wonderful clients, Adam enjoys spending time with his wife (Amanda), his boys (Judah & Josiah) and his golden retriever (Max).
