"David has one of the strongest creative minds I have had the privilege of working with. He is a strong listener which usually makes his first round of work exceed expectations and requires little re-work with faster delivery. I find his design to be impactful and very much aligned with some of the best creative marketing pushing the industry today. Not to mention, skill set aside, David is intelligent, kind, and funny."
