Iteration (doing the same things better),
Innovation (doing new things).
Disruption (doing new things that make the old things obsolete).
Welcome to my portfolio, I’m David a London based designer.

My current role is head of design at Somo heading up the design teams located in London, Bristol and New York.
My role at Somo involves levels of management, art direction and design execution, this includes working directly with clients, sprint sessions, design direction and mood mapping to hands on design engrossment of project work.

I am an experienced and seasoned designer with a background in multiple facets of design. My aim is to create clean, simplistic, impactful design work across whatever medium, keep my finger on the pulse of innovation, and constantly push design forward breaking rules and the ‘expected’. I have a keen eye for layout, composition, type and pushing brands further.

My role, is as specialist in mobile (cross-devices), wearable, web, video and when possible print design. in my career I’ve worked in London, Bristol, Manchester, Chicago and New York where I have worked for a number of high profile companies and clients from all over the world. My client list is large and from a variety of sectors. A few of these include: Audi, Coca-Cola, Goldman Sachs, The Guardian, Manchester City FC, Paramount, Universal, BP, Fox Sports.

I have included my recent Bima top 100 entry below:

As Design Director at Somo, Dave has worked closely with companies with a genuine global footprint, for example News Corp, BP and Fox Sports.
His designs for the Wall Street Journal’s brand new What’s News app brings the latest financial news to millions, while his work for Air BP (designing failsafes to prevent the wrong fuel being used in aircraft) has helped save lives.
Dave has taken OneSubSea audiences to the bottom of the ocean and bolstered the experience of sports fans by getting them closer to their beloved sports and teams with Fox Sports – and that’s just the last 12 months! Dave works across the latest emerging technologies and showcases them across the globe. Dave leads the Somo design teams located in London, Bristol and New York. His primary focuses are management of the highly skilled team, art direction and design execution. This includes working directly with clients, leading design sprint sessions, mood mapping and of course – hands-on-design within project work. He is an experienced and seasoned designer with a background in multiple facets of design.

He creates clean, simplistic, impactful design work across whatever medium. He has his finger on the pulse of innovation, and constantly pushes design forwards; breaking rules and the ‘expected’. He has a keen eye for layout, composition, type and loves to push brands further. I am filled with pride when I think about what Somo has achieved over the past 12 months, and I feel incredibly fortunate to have contributed to it.

I’ve been a designer for almost 12 years now, I’ve worked and learnt from some incredible people, and feel incredibly privileged to be where I am now, I’ve a wealth of experience that i’ve built on since university and an in-depth knowledge of most of the Adobe suite and more. Even the programs I don’t know, I understand which has lead me over the past few years to go from senior designer / art director / design director.
I’m proud of my working style and ethic and believe that past agencies and associates will have nothing but positive experiences with me. Read Less
