Hi, I'm Dave Gnojek.

I'm a creative director, print and web designer, and musician living and working in Lawrence, Kansas.

A bonafide Lawrencian, I got my degree from the University of Kansas, and currently work as a creative director for for Grip Equipment. I was formerly a Creative Director for the University of Kansas Office of Marketing for 6 years and an art director at the university for 12 years before that.

I've also played music throughout my life and can be occasionally found playing saxophone along side the area's finest jazz musicians. That background has opened the door to many design collaborations with musicians, orchestras, opera companies, bands, and dance troupes.

I'll post about those things from time to time on Instagram , so feel free to follow along!
