About me

I am David, a brand designer, strategist, and hobbyist photographer based in Hamburg. I have been working in design for more than 15 years, and in 2020, I started writing Ideas on Design, on and off, as a way to share insights, resources, and structure my own thoughts.

If you would like to follow me elsewhere, you can visit my website here, add me on LinkedIn, take a look at my photography here, and listen to my playlists on Dig this vibe. Get in touch! I am always up for a good chat.
