RAD, RIGHT ON, GLAD YOU'RE HERE!
Hi! I'm Dave Battjes (sounds like 'batches') - a lettering artist, designer and all around happy dude based in Grand Rapids, MI. The land shaped like a hand.
I like to create beautiful things with letters, especially when those letters are big! I also like being outside so it's natural to be painting outdoor lettering murals. Of all the creative things I like to do, painting outside is my favorite! I love bringing joy and excitement to others through visual communication. My mission is to spread positivity through my work.
When I’m not creating you can find me spending time with my family (wife, two boys, two cats and two dogs!), hiking, camping, fixing up my 1920’s house and laying in a hammock dreaming up the next adventure. I have worked alongside my wife for years, at her wholesale bakery, and I can make a mean shortbread cookie!
