Making your business distinctive and effective


Hi, I’m David Roberts, a freelance designer and developer, based in Scotland, working with clients creating digital and analogue products.

If you want to have a connection with your clients and users, one of the best ways is by having a website that conveys your brand and business.

I want to help your business, to give it your personal and professional look and feel that relates to your business and brand needs. It will help you engage with your users and help you move forward with your business.

I will look at your business qualities and translate that into a design that fits in with your ambitions, your users, and customers. You want to stand out and achieve your goals while also letting your personality shine through. Get in touch to discuss your upcoming project and receive a media kit.

Craft to digital

My interest in the book arts, design and technology led me down the path to the work I do. Like most designers/developers, I came to the web from other fields.

Born in the Chilterns, Buckinghamshire. I went to high school in Ontario, Canada, and studied further in Toronto and London. I studied bookbinding and book design at the London College of Printing and have a BA Hons degree in Conservation from Camberwell College of Arts and an MA with Merit in Computer Applications in the History of Art from Birkbeck, University of London.

I have worked at the College of Arms, London as a Conservator, working on historical bound volumes and collection care. As an Artworker in London, working in the education and nonprofit sectors for a range of clients, including; Harper Collins, Central School of Speech and Drama, Equal Opportunities Commission, OECD (The Organisation for Economic Co-operation) and the Open Learning Foundation, producing books, magazines, newsletters and other printed material. I have also worked in the education sector helping pupils with Additional Support Needs gain access to the curriculum by using technology and digital products and working with SQA on digital exams.

Roberts Design is based in Glasgow previously in Kintyre and run by David Roberts. I work with small businesses and nonprofits creating web, identity and print projects, in the UK. I am also a bookbinder producing handmade paper products including books, albums, diaries, pamphlets and decorated papers.

I enjoy using technology and craft skills to make products that are both useful and usable for clients of both traditional and modern persuasions.
