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

Jennifer Benthin
David is an excellent designer to work with. He captures the spirit and theme of the novel and gives it a graphic face. Even the representatives from Amazon commented on how great the cover of the book was and you know that they for sure have seen a million covers. I highly recommend him.

David is not just talented and knowledgeable, but extensively adaptable to time and needs. I had never expected such a professional and helpful designer.

David was very accommodating in extending the dates as we realized that more time was needed to get the cover just right. I will definitely look forward to working with him again!

Collaborating with David on a cover design was an excellent experience. From the initial concept work, to the final form, I enjoyed the entire process. I would definitely recommend David to others that are looking to having their cover design professionally crafted.
