Based in Mammoth Lakes California Dave Titus Illustrations is a Creative Design Studio focused on developing lively, colorful images. Sometimes funny, other times serious, strange or even scary Dave’s characters always have personality, and his illustrated product images seemingly come to life. His children’s illustrations dazzle and delight kids of all ages across a wide range of media. For over 25 years he’s worked with some of North America’s biggest brands, turning clients’ ideas into captivating artwork.
As far back as Dave can remember he was observing people around him and drawing avatars. When he was 5 years old he surprised his mother by drawing a perfect rendition of the Tin Man while watching the Wizard of Oz on TV. From Mozilla to the Airborne Guy today Dave’s work has found it’s way around the globe.
The Creative Design Studio provides a whole range of services including art direction, illustration, character design, packaging, branding, editorial, mural illustrations, site-specific installations, public art, signage, logos and graphic design. Clients love working with Dave Titus Illustrations. Creative, fun, flexible and deadline-focused, the studio stays within budget and approaches every project with enthusiasm and a touch of magic.
Dave sketches everything on paper, and then paints the final images digitally using Photoshop and Illustrator, unless of course he’s painting a 55′ wall mural. That requires an articulating boom.
Dave is an expert at developing rough concepts into compelling visuals by carefully understanding the brief, playing with the composition, and choosing the right feeling, pallet and execution for his client’s project. The quality of his work shines through each image, bringing life, emotion, creativity, and impact to every piece.
Dave Titus has a Bachelor of Science Degree in Graphic Design with an illustration concentration from San Jose State University.
