David completed an MA in Communication Design at Central St. Martin’s School of Art and Design, focusing on the experiential processes within democracy. The research project Ballot studied human behaviour within information structures and considered how the fundamentals of the graphic design discipline could assist in impeding disenfranchisement throughout voting nations within the European Union.

David has worked and collaborated within the Graphic Design industry in Ireland and the UK for the past eight years. David’s current practice is a collaborative project with illustrator Gareth Proskourine-Barnett at radical publishing house Tombstone Press exploring the manner in which the printed narrative is experienced and constructed. Tombstone Press is a visceral and illustrative examination of urban living and architecture through a physical interaction with print. The first publication How Buildings Kill was published in June 2013 with new book Affectation Correspondence due for release in 2016. David is also a panel member of the International Society of Typographic Designer’s Student Awards.

David is currently undertaking a Postgraduate Certificate in Education at the University of Greenwich.
