RESEARCH + PRACTICE
David is Design Director at Studio Semaphore, a company focussing on experiential graphic design solutions for the built environment. His design practice integrates enduser input with strategic nous, and draws on a body of past projects for which experiential graphic design was intrinsic to success. Throughout his career, David has worked across an array of genres including hospital, retail, tertiary education and cultural projects, developing his expertise in wayfinding, branding and printed media. His natural design competence has lead to the mentoring of fellow designers, as well as teaching studios at both RMIT and Swinburne Universities.
David has long enjoyed working at the intersection of typography, pattern and the physical realm, and inspires all his project teams with his natural perceptivity and consistent creative drive. He is a graduate of Monash University’s School of Art, Design and Architecture and holds a degree in Communication Design.
