I was hired to design a trademark that captured “New York City unpretentious wealth,” and portrayed the company as “a safe and honest steward of capital, with some sense of art/culture away from just money.”

Client feedback

“We found David using an extensive online search and were attracted to his obvious deep knowledge of graphic design as well as his simple elegant lines. We are a New York-based hedge fund and were looking for a logo that reflected our new name and that would be memorable without being flashy. One of David’s key strengths is that he really listens to the client and is very patient in re-working the design until full satisfaction is achieved. David arrived at the perfect mix of realism and abstraction we were looking for, using his graceful and stylish lines. In short: we love the design!”
— OREN COHEN, CHIEF INVESTMENT OFFICER
