Communicating your ideas

I create products for people like you...

Hello, Iā€™m David a designer-developer working in both the digital and analogue sectors. I am creative, knowledgeable in both the visual and technical aspects of producing digital products. I aim to bring my creativity, ideas and knowledge into the world through the design and development of digital and analogue products.

I grew up in the UK and moved to Canada at the age of fifteen. I studied in the areas of Design, Bookbinding and Conservation both in Toronto and London. I gained an HND in (Design) Bookbinding, BA Hons degree in Conservation (Books and Archives) and an MA (Merit) in Computer Applications in the History of Art.

I have worked as a Bookbinder, Conservator, Artworker and Project co-ordinator working for a range of clients, including The College of Arms, The Organisation for Economic Co-operation, Harper Collins, Open Learning Foundation, and the Equal Opportunities Commission.

Design, creativity, the book arts, music, reading and enjoying the natural world are all important parts of my life. Using the skills that I have gained throughout my career to make products that are useful and usable for clients is an everyday need that I try and fulfil.

Availability ā€“ If you would like to chat about your next project, please contact me by email. I will get back to you within a couple of days. Learn more about how I can help you.

Whiskyopolis Exhibition

After writing the exhibition panels we got in touch with David and commissioned the design of eleven panels that would illustrate our story. David then produced the final designs ahead of schedule. This was all done without fuss, on budget ā€“ time and cost ā€“ and they were widely admired at the launch event. We have plans to use him again next year and have no hesitation in recommending him.
