ILLUME is a Full-Service, Multi-Award Winning Marketing & Communications firm established in 2003. ILLUME’s team is composed of Multi-Disciplined communications experts with a broad range of brand and industry experience, consequently everyone on staff is prepared to problem solve. Our team loves both the science and art of the communications business. Even more important, we believe in compelling communities forward with our work, lifting brands above, and finding solutions for the big and small.

There is no Silver Bullet. No one guaranteed method to persuade or change perspectives. The power to change minds and ring cash registers does not start with beautiful photographs, clever videos, or FaceBook posts. ILLUME moves numbers by starting with a thorough understanding of the audience and a willingness to meet them where they are. Only then can we communicate. Look for openings. And finally, plant the seed of persuasion.


James is the founder and award-winning Executive Creative Director at ILLUME.

Specific brand experience includes: Timberland, The HSUS’ Pets For life, PetSmart Charities, Kennedy Krieger Institute, Baltimore Department of Health, CVS Caremark’s Project Health, Safe Streets Baltimore and State of Maryland.

I’ve had the privilege of working closely with James Evans and ILLUME on several national projects. James brings a unique skill set to any project, his creative eye is only matched by an astute ability to understand any audience.
