    / Comments (5)

    David DiMaria, who runs Collective Sessions, is one of the secret weapons of the best digital and traditional agencies in town. (Not so secret anymore.) David does full service web development, specializing in interface and php-based dev – but he also codes in other languages and platforms, including ActionScript, C#, JavaScript, Java, Facebook Apps and Mobile Apps.

    He's done some killer work for Motive (Crocs, Qdoba), Sukle (Denver Water), Factory (Rawlings) and Xylem (Red Robin) here in town – as well as working directly with clients. He's an easy guy to work with, he won't nickel and dime you on every little thing, and he has some very creative ideas to make the digital things you imagine work exactly the way they're envisioned in your head.

    David's available for hire on a freelance basis and is now listed as Recommended Talent for Digital/Development. Grab him for your next project.

    Untitled: Final Fridays at the DAM feel less like a field trip, more like a night out. Have an offbeat art encounter, strut your creative stuff, groove to local sounds, and more.

    dDiy: Digital Do-It-Yourself missions to do and share. Knit it, speak it, play it, act it, tape it, snap it, paint it. Then upload and share it. Dig it.

    Demo & Do: Master artists and crafters set up shop in the museum. Pick up some skills in a pint-size apprenticeship. Come on, try it. Everyone.

    Happenings: One-of-a-kind happenings co-created by members of the Collective. Convene with creative movers and shakers.
