Being a “South Paw,” Dave Rowe has always been a creative sole. From the first time he picked up a crayon, his artistic juices flowed.
After high school, Dave’s passion for art led him to the University of Pittsburgh where he studied studio arts. He apprenticed with Quakertown Printing learning all aspects of layout, design and the printing industry before landing a job at the Times News in the ad composition department.
Dave quickly made his way up the ladder and began working in the page composition department for both the Times News and East Penn Publishing. He’s also works with TN Printing on special projects.
He has won multiple awards for layout and design in the Pennsylvania Keystone Award competition and is a 2016 Associated Press award winner.
Dave’s current title is graphic artist and feature page designer. He is fluent in most Adobe applications. He loves being challenged in his field and finds his career very rewarding.
In his spare time, Dave does freelancing. He has done work for the Dow Jones Newspaper fund, Temple University and the AALAS-DVB. He also takes great pride in remodeling his home and loves to spend time with his daughter, her fiancée and his cat.
