About Dave

I have a solid foundation in graphic design and have built a skill-set in motion graphics and web production upon those design principals. I enjoy the process of coming up with a concept, creating the design, and then bringing it to life in the production stage. I spend my free time learning new skills, building computers, and creating illustrations. I'm available for freelance animation and website projects, just email me at: projects@davevsdave.com

Why The Name DaveVSDave?

Good question! There are many different reasons, but here is the long and short of it: My last name is Averdick, which has the word dick in it. I'm proud of this last name and my family's heritage, however, having the word dick in a URL might keep a number of folks from visiting my website. Thus, I decided I needed a moniker to go by for my creative services. I tossed around a number of names, but ended up landing on DaveVSDave because it embraces the duality needed to create great work in a quickly evolving digital age. I believe balance is key to producing great work; technology vs design, practicality vs creativity, strategy vs instinct, and so on. DaveVSDave Creative strives to land in the middle on each of these essential, yet opposing, ideals to create the best possible work.
