David McGary has been the owner of DMC Graphics for almost 20 years, but the work involved has always been a passion for him. The profession of graphic designer that allows him to be creative while rendering a valuable service.
“I’ve always been interested in art, and graphic design is kind of a business version of art,” McGary said. “The two just go together.”
Graphic design started out as a side job for McGary, but eventually became a full-time job, which he says has proven worthwhile time and time again.
“I love seeing our work take to the streets,” McGary said. “It’s a way of being proud of our work because I’m pointing and saying ‘oh, we did it! “”
DMC Graphics’ work can be seen any day on the roads of Owensboro, as they have done vehicle wraps for many well-known local clients over the years.
“Vehicle advertising has become more important than it used to be because most local businesses want lettering for their vehicles,” McGary said. “We work with NiteLiters, Evergreen, city buses, and multiple heating and cooling outlets here in town. The majority of our activity is commercial.
One of the things McGary enjoys most about car wrapping is that it’s not a repetitive job, which makes his day-to-day job exciting.
“It’s hard for me to say what the coolest movie we’ve done is,” McGary said. “We completed the Sunday Night Football Bus in 2019. We recently built three or four soapbox derby cars here; we made them really sharp and racy, so hopefully the kids can get in there and get really excited about it.
The services offered by DMC Graphics do not stop at vehicle wrapping. They also do graphic design for printing purposes, logos for corporate identity, banners, decals and other projects.
“We once made a wrapper for the biggest chocolate bar in the world,” McGary said. “The marketing company we work for took her on tour, so it was pretty neat.”
McGary said that without the help of his colleagues, he doesn’t know where his business would be today.
“There are seven of us here full time and despite starting the business and countless overtime hours, I would struggle to do much or get this far without DMC’s hardworking staff and support,” McGary said. said.
