Dav Tabeshfar,
Creative Director

Dav’s advertising career got off to a meteoric start at a small retail agency in Bournemouth, the retirement capital of England. However, it wasn’t long before the big brands and bright lights lured him to London, where he created campaigns for the likes of Gillette, Jeep, Stella Artois and BBC World.

Since settling in WA, Dav has created and directed campaigns for the state’s highest profile brands, including Main Roads, HBF, RAC, City Farmers, Cash Converters, Red Rooster, WA Potatoes, Golden Eggs and IKEA. During his time in Sydney, he worked on a range of national campaigns including TV campaigns for Bonds Underwear, Crown Casinos, Red Rock Deli, RSVP.com.au and Gloria Jeans. He has also been active in industry development, as a lecturer at Curtin University, Head of Award School WA, and an AdSchool tutor.

AWARDS

Dav has been awarded at every major local, national and international creative award show, including D&AD, Cannes, New York Festivals, AWARD and the Effies. His work has won AdNews TV Commercial of the Year and in 2012 his campaign for The Office of Road Safety won the Grand Effie, the most prestigious effectiveness award in Australia.
