About

Look, it’s me! David Callaway! Austin-based creative director and copywriter. Sorry about my face. Here’s a little bit about me and what gets me up in the morning. First and foremost coffee. The snobbier, the better. After that, it’s making cool stuff with cool people.

 

Hi there, internet friend

I'm a creative director and copywriter. My face often looks like this.

I learned at a young age that I just wasn’t going to do something I didn't enjoy. This led to lackluster results in anything math-related. But my stubbornness paid off — now I get to create and make believe for a living, and I can’t imagine doing anything else. Although being an independently wealthy gentleman of leisure would also be dope.

I lead copywriters and designers in solving creative challenges and building brands through smart, concept-driven work. I collaborate with marketers, product managers, sales teams and developers. I avoid harnessing synergies, shifting paradigms, breaking down silos, etc., and instead tell stories that people care about.

I've done work for brands both big and small, startups, nonprofits, and entrepreneurs. At present, I work as a Global Associate Creative Director for HomeAway in Austin, Texas. I also do freelance copywriting and branding for companies like YETI Coolers, Neck of the Woods, T3, nFusion and PrintingForLess.com.
