MY THOUGHT PROCESS IS

CYCLICAL

CREATIVE DIRECTOR | ART DIRECTOR | UI DESIGNER
My natural way of thinking is cyclical. You can’t connect the dots looking forward, you can only connect them looking back.

Understanding and using these connections I drive emotion by design. This causes the target audience to experience something meaningful, resulting in sales. As a highly accomplished visionary, I have proven expertise in building successful brands and creating ideas that endure and drive growth for companies.

What They Say

LUKE HEJL

CEO & Founder
TimelyMD

David is a great Creative Director. He worked on my team for several years leading well – always bringing fresh ideas to the table. Not only can he create big ideas – he can bring them to life.

COURTNEY ZIMMERMAN

Director of Marketing
Dallas Symphony Orchestra

I would highly recommend David for any creative project (large or small) and have used him for freelance projects at 2 additional companies I have worked for since we parted ways in 2012. He is smart, dedicated, adaptable and extremely talented. Any company would benefit immensely from hiring him.

GAIL KANTOR

Co-Founder
eJamming Inc

We found David when eJamming was under a tremendous time crunch. He had to quickly grasp numerous technological and usability requirements of three different teams while also satisfying the sensibilities of the co-founders. Without David’s organizational and communication skills, our goals would not have been adequately met. You discover a lot about people when they’re under pressure. David’s a leader.

CRAIG BURZYNSKI

Manager of Creative Services
Conifer Health Solutions

Big ideas” is the first thing that comes to mind when I think of David. His passion for elevating projects and ideas, all while coming up with creative solutions and approaches in doing so, is what makes David tick. Not only was he a wonderful designer, but I was always struck with how much passion he brought to each project, always coming up with big ideas and unique approaches.
