Dave BlackhurstDave works as the art director for Bennett Communications and is kept busy laying out publications, websites, building ads and taking photos. Previous to joining the staff of Bennett Communications in Oct. 2003, he worked as a graphic designer for the Daily Herald in Provo. He has been a freelance designer since 1999 and continues to serve clients in off hours from home. He earned a graphic design degree from UVU after graduating from Timpview High School in Provo.
If he’s not hunkered in front of his giant computer screen, Dave can be found hiking in the hills around Payson with his Weimaraner Max, rock climbing up Santaquin Canyon or fly fishing on the local creeks. On warmer days he can be found at Gladstan Golf Course looking to lower his best score.
Dave’s plans for the future include traveling to Alaska for fly fishing, traveling to Italy with his wife, flying to California for golf at Pebble Beach and spending many days looking for petroglyphs in southern Utah.
Dave lives in Payson with his wife of fourteen years, Heather, and their eight-year-old daughter, Sabrina.
