David is a seasoned designer based in Cork, Ireland who is focused on user experience, creativity and theories behind what makes art and design tick.
He began his creative career as an advertising copywriter in the mid-1990s and became increasingly curious about how designers incorporated his one-liners into amazing visuals. Eventually, he co-opted a friendly designer named Ollie to be his teacher and learned how to make multicoloured images blink nauseatingly on screen. He quickly became hooked and taught himself an ancient form of HTML, the fundamentals of design and discovered god in the form of Paul Rand.
After making a career change from ‘writer’ to ‘designer who writes’, David worked in print and digital media, eventually setting up his own tiny graphic design studio that ran very successfully for seven years.
He is currently Head of Design for C2P, where he helps create really useful SaaS solutions for a number of the world’s biggest multinationals.
