David Sankey

Designer, Illustrator, Creative Director

New York, NY, USA
I have provided print, branding, and web solutions for clients in the non-profit, retail, hospitality, and financial service industries, among others. Through this diverse client base, I've become very comfortable in communicating closely with clients, designers and other designers and sharing ideas and perspectives in order to solve design problems. I have become accustomed to meeting internal and external expectations on multiple projects with aggressive timelines.
