Hi, I’m David Bowman. I take pictures, make videos, design and create in real life and on screens. I’m married to a lovely woman and have two equally lovely kids and, when we’re not traveling the country in our big green bus/home, we live in New York City.
Creative Director (April 2017-present)
My family left New York with a goal to visit all 59 U.S. national parks in a self-converted bus. We tell our stories to raise awareness for public lands preservation and to show the value of experiencing nature as a family.
As creative director, I oversee the planning and execution of all our visual content. This includes photo and video production, as well as planning and developing our visual brand across our website and social media channels. I also handle all business development and pitch new clients in cooperation with my wife and co-creative director. I also drive the bus and make my kids lots of sandwiches.

Designer (May 2014-Mar 2017)
At Doyle Partners I was one of 3 designers working for AIGA Medalist and National Design Award Winner Stephen Doyle. It was a very small and collaborative studio and we did a wide range of creative work for everyone from hedge funds to cheesemongers. Everyone worked on almost every project but my specialties were in branding, web development, video production and illustration. I led many projects under Stephen’s creative direction and had the immense pleasure of working for some amazing clients doing the kind of work that I dreamed of doing while I was in school.

BfA Graphic Design candidate (2011-2014)
My design education focused on traditional print design. However, at the time UI/UX was finally starting to be taught formally at my school and I spent my time in school convinced that I was going to leave and become a UX designer. To my great surprise, I ended up getting my dream job during the summer between my junior and senior years and decided to move to New York to begin my career a bit earlier than planned.
While I was in school I worked as an Interaction design teaching assistant, helping fellow students learn the process of designing and prototyping digital products and user experiences.
I also spent summers working as an intern at Goodby SIlverstein & Partners in San Francisco and TD Ameritrade in NYC.
