As the son of the Owner, David has been around the business almost as long as Kay and has worked in the shop since it was located in the basement of his parent’s home. David has his B.F.A. (Bachelor of Fine Arts) from Grenfell Campus of Memorial University of Newfoundland and Labrador, he brings that creativity into the shop with his graphic design. Although David’s official title is “Graphic Designer”, because of his experience around the shop and almost a year’s experience working for a printing press company in Alberta, he does most of the finish work, along with maintaining and repairing the equipment, editing, some deliveries, and occasionally he manages the shop when Kay is away on business or other matters.
It is hard to know what David might be working on at any given time, as he moves around from graphic design, to painting, to sculpture and back again, based on what might inspire him next. You can always see David’s artwork up on display at Aylward’s Designs, but if you would like to see some of his work online, visit his site below:
