My name is David Davis, I’m an artist, creative and graphic designer.  I’m always eager to approach creative challenges looking for new ways to utilize my creative talents in art direction, design, and multimedia development in order to connect on a truly emotional level with a target audience.  I’m an artist at heart with a strong design and multimedia portfolio in addition to a strong drive to succeed in each endeavor.

Philosophy

To leverage the arts in order to distill a message (corporate, brand, product or service) into an easily consumed communiqué via concept, content, imagery, and multimedia assets provided by the destination platform (print, web, mobile, presentation, video).  A message that resonates with a target audience on a unspoken level delivering the most effective reach possible.

Experience

Studying fine art opened my experience to creative thinking and problem solving.  This along with a strong curiosity and innate sensibility to how people connect with color, design, and imagery through static and dynamic content drove me to pursue a path of graphic arts and marketing.
