Hi, I’m David, an independent designer, developer and maker working in both the digital and analogue areas of design and development. These include web design, graphic design, photographic printing, leather and paper goods.
I took a foundation course in Book Arts in Toronto. There I discovered the skills of craftsmanship and hand bookbinding. I returned to the UK and studied (Design) Bookbinding, Book Conservation, the History of Art, the use of technology within an art background gaining a BA (Hons) and MA (Merit). I have lived and worked in Toronto and London. I now live in Scotland on the West Coast.
I have worked as a book conservator at the College of Arms, London and as a self-employed bookbinder. I have a small workshop making handmade books, marbled papers as well as leather goods. Get in touch to discuss a project that you have in mind.
I use the skills I have learnt from design and layout work to project management and handcraft skills to design and develop digitally. I am creative and knowledgeable in producing digital and analogue products for clients. I also can print photographic quality images on the Epson 44-inch SureColor P8000 printer.
Using the skills I have gained throughout my career, producing products and helping clients is an activity that I enjoy and aim to fulfil. Take a look at my digital work and my handmade products to see samples.
If you are interested in working with me on a digital or analogue project, or need some photographic printing get in touch to discuss your next project. Email me, and I will get back to you with any questions you have.
