Hi, I’m David! I’m an award-winning creative director, graphic designer, photographer, and superhero aficionado. I am a concept-led creative who is wildly inspired by bold imagery, with an out-of-the-box approach to solving problems through design. I have 15+ years in the creative industry and I’ve worked with brands like Taco Bell, Marriott, Adobe, Target, and Rockstar Games. I’ve worked on both the agency and client side, with an MFA from Savannah College of Art and Design. I led the recent Taco Bell Rewards refresh, and won a W3 Award for the NFL/Courtyard Super Bowl Sleepover social campaign in 2018. I first discovered my love of larger than life characters during my childhood on Long Island, NY, where I found myself preoccupied with fantastical worlds served up by comic books & professional wrestling. Very little has changed. Some of my favorite clients include Elvira Mistress of the Dark, Kid Cudi, Todrick Hall, some RuPaul’s Drag Race winners and a few NFL stars. My work as been featured in Graphic Design USA Magazine (cover), Communication Arts (cover), Huffington Post, OUT Magazine, Seventeen Magazine, Playboy Magazine, and more. You can find my online photography course through Domestika, the largest mutli-lingual educational platform for creatives.
