I'm a designer/art director with a passionate interest in the art and significance of the book cover. In exploring different modes of visual language, I always strive to shepherd the final product to a state of sophistication, dynamism and succinctness.

Additionally, I deliver all of the qualities to be expected of a professional designer:
• exceptional design/typographic skills and visual sensibility
• the ability to quickly grasp concepts
• highly-adept at incorporating feedback and modifying designs accordingly
• excellent written and verbal communication skills
• a passion and appreciation for the written word

This was my first time using this website. I was obviously a bit confused about it. David was amazing. He helped me understand the process. He understand exactly what I needed and answered all of my questions. The final product, my book cover, was perfect. I highly recommend hiring David for his services. I will absolutely hire him, again.
