“WHY SHOULD I HIRE AVID MARKETING?”
Since birth, Dave Griffiths has been a designer at heart. He thinks back to when he was a child and the pride he felt after he had cut up his dad’s National Geographic magazines and put together his own magazine with glue and construction paper. His father wasn’t so happy; however the creative spark in David’s eye was born.
Throughout high-school he has always had a desire to design and create. He attended the University of Miami in Coral Gables, Florida, and graduated with two degrees in Advertising and Graphic Design. For many years, David worked in the design field either as a webmaster or a graphic designer. Throughout his career, he has always worked for his freelance clients and built up his own clientele.
During David’s first job after college at Jackson Memorial Hospital in the Public Relations Department, he learned the importance of showcasing ethnic diversity in today’s business world. While employed at JaxWraps in Jacksonville, Florida, he learned how to take a two-dimensional image and transform it into a three-dimensional vehicle wrap. At every one of his positions, whether it was as a Publisher, a Webmaster, or as an Art Director, David always learned from his experiences and brings with him a varied background and a “box” full of ideas.
In 2011, David launched his own online magazine and began learning about social media. In June 2012, while he was working two jobs, he completed his IT Computer Networking Systems degree at ITT-Technical Institute, studying IT and Computer Networking Systems. In addition to his software skills, he wanted to enhance his computer knowledge and earned a 3.78 grade point average after having been out of school for fifteen years. “I did not rely upon my education to get me where I am today. I relied upon my ability to learn on my own, to try different methods, to test and to repeat those methods that worked and to learn from those that didn’t,” he says.
In 2014, after years of helping many other companies with their company branding, David decided to finally brand himself and started his own printing and marketing company. AVID Marketing was founded because David saw the need for small companies to have creative campaigns like a high-end advertising agency, but offer reliable and professional design and printing services at a reasonable cost. AVID can produce everything from promotional products like putting you logo on pens, to smaller designs like business cards, up to larger design and production jobs like vehicle wraps. “We specialize in helping our clients with absolutely anything and everything you may need to enhance and grow your business,” David says.
