About me
Hi! I’m David, nice to meet you. I design products; physical things, digital things, and my personal favourite, in-between things. In everything I make, I focus on the human being behind it - the real people using and affected by the things we create. This means I have a passion for making a thing enjoyable to use, whether that is through the simplicity or convenience of the design, the sense of wonder it creates, or just by making someone smile. In my career so far, I’ve worked at great studios like PDD, Hyphen Design and W12 Studios in roles across the design and manufacture spectrum. I’m currently working as a Freelance Designer in London before starting on Design Interactions at the RCA in September 2016. I'm always interested in working with people with a passion for what they do, and if you think you'd like to work with me, drop me an email.

  • The Skype Collaboration Project
    The Skype Collaboration ProjectSkype wanted to connect with a younger, tech-savvy audience. Since launching ten years ago, it’s evolved into a sophisticated collaboration tool but is still best known for video calling friends and family. To showcase Skype’s lesser-known features, we created a new editorial platform designed to inspire and enable young creatives in the fashion industry while demonstrating how the technology can help support their creative ambitions. Our in-house editorial team of fashion journalists, filmmakers and editors created a regular stream of unique content. In just three months, we produced hundreds of exclusive articles, interviews, behind-the-scenes videos and insider tips to give emerging talent a unique insight into the world of fashion. The Skype Collaboration Project has had more than 4 million visitors and 400 million social media impressions. Our collaboration with Victoria Beckham made headlines around the world, including the front cover of Grazia, The Daily Mail, E! News and Good Morning America.
