I’m a graphic designer, writer, and brand consultant, hired by clients of all sizes, from multinationals to companies of one.
Since opening my business in 2005 I’ve created logos and visual identities for brands in more than 30 countries.
As well as client work I launched the design blogs Logo Design Love & Identity Designed. They’ve grown steadily over time and their pages now get millions of views each year, resulting in publishing deals to write their accompanying books.
The Logo Design Love book was first published in 2009. It’s available in twelve languages, an expanded edition (2014), and is included on the reading lists of design programmes around the world.
The Identity Designed book was published in 2019, and in the words of Adobe’s principal designer, Khoi Vinh, it’s, “Not just beautifully designed, but also beautiful in its depth and detail about the identity design process.”

In others’ words
David’s combination of creativity and professionalism was exactly what we needed. Our team of professionals had strong opinions on the project. David was able to take their feedback on board and steer us toward an outcome we are proud of.
— Dr Richard Tipper, executive chairman, Ecometrica
We had been looking for a graphic designer for several months, but the previous ones I spoke to never met our taste. Finally, when I discovered David through a Google search, it appeared likely that such a passionate designer would be the partner we had been looking for — which became obvious as soon as we started working together. After reviewing our requirements, David sent us a few proposals and, taking great care, created numerous modifications. Most importantly, each modification introduced that special detail that makes all the difference.
— Dominique Berthier, president, Berthier Associates
We wanted a logo with a touch of modernism. David grasped our needs and produced a stunning design. When feedback was needed, new versions or modifications were made very quickly. We greatly appreciated David’s flexibility and efficiency, and it was excellent to work with someone so open-minded and responsive.
