After separating from the Federal Highway Administration in 2014, Allen co-founded along with his wife and two children, Striking Communications an Adon Visions LLC entity. As the founder and creative director, Adon is responsible for the successful day-to-day operations of the company. Allen has been instrumental in helping clients communicate visually, and in implementing program improvements across a variety of challenging environments.  Core to his leadership experience are, performance management, project management, and marketing communications.

“Allen Adon did an incredible job on our wedding invitations and the rest of our paper materials. He is a real artist and a really nice guy. We wanted invitations that really reflected our wedding–whimsical, beautiful, and unique. We were also working on a real budget. Allen could not have been nicer or more enthusiastic. He took our ideas and made them a 1000 times better, and was also very accommodating about tweaks that we wanted. We loved working with him and could not recommend him more highly.”
