What does Dave do?

  • Designs. Dave creates layouts for books (cover and interior), corporate publications, and websites. His energetic designs draw readers in and invite them to engage with the text.
  • Formats and produces. Dave isn’t satisfied until the final product is ready for the reader. With an eye for detail and commitment to quality, he prepares print-ready files for children’s books, corporate reports, textbooks and more.
