Dave Clark Design has been part of the Melbourne design and digital scene since 2011. But we actually opened for business in 2001 through our Auckland studio. Since then things have grown to the point where we now operate out of Sydney too.
Maybe it’s our Kiwi roots that explain why we like to work under the radar, forging lasting relationships with clients more so than entering awards. That’s not to say design or creativity takes a back seat.
Far from it! We remain absolutely true to our design heritage. And while we talk strategy, we firmly focus on the ‘doing’ because we know you’ve got targets to hit.
Engage our services and you’ll find a multi-disciplined approach, which leads to more consistent, memorable and complete experiences for customers online and offline, globally and locally.
At last count there were over 60 of us doing great work across five studios. Together we work as a single, integrated agency that crosses borders and time zones.
If there’s one thing that sets us apart from other agencies, it’s our service. However clients also respect our ability to cut through the noise to get things done. Much of this stems from having the right attitude and making the right investment in senior design and digital talent. We’re open and flexible about our processes. We work harmoniously with appointed suppliers, including advertising agencies, to best ensure brand consistency and integrity.
What’s more we work as a genuinely integrated team, which leads to plenty of collaboration across disciplines. Copywriters work with motion graphic artists, graphic designers work with digital designers and so on. Our brand design influences what we do digitally. Likewise our UX thinking informs what we do even in print. Whatever we do, we make sure that working with us is easy by being prepared, flexible and nice. Nice by itself is good. But nice plus delivering great work – now that’s when you hit the jackpot.

Group Digital Director
Jonathan sets the digital strategy and the tone of the user experience for our digital team. Led by the design and user experience of a solution as much as its technical foundation, he ensures a customer’s interactive experience is relevant, authentic and rewarding. A key part of Jonathan’s role is to help clients shape what they want to get out of a project and then develop a content-driven strategy for our in-house team to realise – be it an app, website or more specialist digital solution.
