Who is Dave Preece?
Did curiosity really kill the cat?
Digital Craftsman & all round good guy.
Hi, I’m a digital craftsman who creates high-quality, award-winning work for clients.
Standing at six feet nine inches tall and fuelled by espresso, I am a planner who ensures work is carried out to a high standard and delivered on time. Sometimes this requires a bit of two-way movement, but I never leave a job unfinished.
I found my place in the world of advertising and design by simply following my passion and being one of the lucky ones who has a job doing something they love. I enjoy creating and developing brands, creative campaigns, typography, photography, retouching, UI design, and working with like-minded creative people who are not afraid to explore new ideas.
When I’m not on the tools ‘making it awesome’, you will find me spending time with my family, behind a camera or on my bike.
Would you like to see?
Of course you would – Here is a selection of work I have produced.
What can I do?
What am I good at?
Having always been a creative person, I love my job. It allows me the opportunity to do what I really enjoy and to always explore and try new ways of doing things.
Call it Artworking, Mac Operating or Pre Press – I have years of experience in producing artwork to the highest standard, making countless rounds of client changes and creating final artwork that meets specification. All in all, producing results to a consistently high standard.
From simple web banners to full blown responsive websites, I have designed it all.
Not only that, but I also have web coding knowledge (HTML and CSS). This helps not only when I am designing and building an entire project my self, but also when I work as part of a team – as I can realistically design for a specific platform (keeping both the client and the developers happy).
From removing a zit from someone’s face, to turning them into a dinosaur – I’m your man.
Photography is a passion of mine and I am lucky enough to be able to incorporate that passion into what I do for a living.
Being a skilled craftsman, I like to ensure the tools of my craft are in top condition. It’s from years of doing this that I have developed my IT knowledge.
So when it comes to Apple computers (hardware and software), Adobe software, Smart Phones, Tablets, Printers and Local Networks, I relish in the task of problem solving.
Based in Wellington, I'm happy to travel to client offices or to work remotely
