David in a few words

I develop typographic, visual, and written solutions for clients. I take a holistic approach, and my work bridges multiple disciplines and typically incorporates both technical and business facets.

I have a technical background and can elicit, write and edit material, particularly for blue-chip clients in financial services, payment systems, and ancillary fields and has encompassed marketing brochures, user guides, function specifications, internal control and audit documents.

I am developing my own portfolio of fonts and am also available for custom type design.

I am a member of the International Society of Typographic Designers (MISTD) and a Chartered Professional Member of the BCS (MBCS CITP).

I am based in Luxembourg but I am frequently in Paris where I pursue a personal research project to find the best tarte au citron.
