Associate Dean and Associate Professor in Graphic Design, at the College of Arts & Creative Enterprises - Zayed University, Abu Dhabi. David earned an MA in Communication Design from the University of Salford, England. He has over 25 years experience, both working within industry for award winning design agencies in the UK, as well as working as Managing Director at his own successful company “Key Lime Creative Ltd”.
The focus in his teaching is to bring his experience within the design industry full circle and to pass his experience onto others, through higher education. David has a keen interest in all design related issues with a passion for land art and natural/urban decay. He recently published papers on “What effect technology has had on a graphic designers thought process over the last 25 years”.
His research tends to focus on the environment, the evolution of man and his material wealth, the development of bigger and bigger cities, more and more people, pollution and industry of our planet and the consequences this has on the natural cycle of life. Some reviews of his practice have labeled his creative work as 'thought provoking' as his projects give the viewer an opportunity to make their own interpretation - the persistence of nature in recapturing what once belonged to the earth will overtime always succeed. David is currently working on a Typography project connected to Land Art, inspired by the ecology of Sir Banyas Island.
