Hi, I’m Dave Woods. I can help you create products, services, and experiences that people love.

Think of me as your friction fixer. I’ll help you discover reasons why your customers may feel confused, frustrated, or pained:

An angry person glares at a long, convoluted, disconnected maze.

Then we’ll transform their pains into helpful, smooth, rewarding experiences:

A happy person smiles at the sight of a straight, direct, easy-to-use pathway.

The result? You’ll leapfrog competitors, forge lasting customer relationships, and your brand will thrive.

Here’s how I do it:

There’s a reason why over 90% of my business comes from referrals.

Here’s what just a few past clients and colleagues have to say:

California State University San Marcos.

“While employed at CSUSM, Dave consistently produced quality, innovative work that exceeded expectations. He is truly multidisciplinary: a polished writer and presenter, a talented designer and technologist, always focused on strategy and long-range impact. But equally important, he is a thoughtful and caring person.”

Escondido Union School District.

“Dave has a really unique skillset, and he’s full of great ideas. He didn’t just do amazing work for EUSD he also taught and empowered us to be self-sufficient. I can’t believe how much we learned from Dave about strategy, design, marketing, accessibility, and more.”

California Center for the Arts, Escondido.

“Working with Dave was an incredible experience. He was thoughtful and thorough in his approach, effectively utilizing market research and industry knowledge to inform his top-quality work. He also communicated clearly, created realistic benchmarks and, after much hard work, delivered a final product that we are immensely proud of.”
Jerry Van Leeuwen

Literacy and the Law.

“Working with Dave was the wisest move we made in getting our project organized. His conscientious follow-through and attention to detail was equally matched by his amazing creativity. In addition, Dave’s warm, confident communication style was extremely effective when presenting to staff, judges, attorneys, and educators. Without reservation, I highly recommend Dave Woods.”
