Dave Ugrinow

Account Executive

Dave is a creative-minded liaison between clients and the design department. With a background in communications and art, Dave provides the perfect mix of project design and management. Aside from keeping client requests and communications in order, Dave often oversees the agency’s video projects. He’s also our go-to naming source — all of our naming projects have been his solutions. A sharp proofing eye, web coding skills, and attention to detail are his key talents. Since joining the team in 2013, Dave has taken on Gastite’s complex print projects and turned them into successful interactive online training courses. On top of all of that, Dave can sketch and juggle better than anyone in the office.

Obsessed with superheroes, Dave most often has the “S” on his chest. On weekends, you’ll find him at home with his family, coaching his two sons’ baseball and soccer teams, making intricate cakes and Halloween costumes, or brewing beer. When he can, he sneaks off to the mountains with friends.

Dave enjoys working on…


Videos have fast become my favorite type of projects to take on — particularly SCU’s brand message and Vibram’s IronClad video. From working with the creative team to write scripts and storyboards to coordinating with the video team to oversee shoots; every aspect of these projects is planned, yet by nature has to be flexible. Seeing everything come together in the final spot amazes me every time.”

That’s enough about Dave.
