As bluemarlin’s creative founder, David is responsible for setting the standard of design excellence and creativity.

He has been defining and developing brands for clients large and small, national and international, for the best part of three decades.

David passionately believes that great creative ideas can be universal and have the power to transcend cultures, markets and technologies.

He excels at building and developing creative teams to produce exceptional work, and has worked on global and national legacy brands for Unilever, GSK, Mondelez, Nestle, Phillip Morris, AB InBev, Coca Cola, Chevron, Shell, Treasury Wine Estates, Adani, ITC, and Colgate-Palmolive, winning a glut of industry awards over the years.

David has led bluemarlin creativity from its creation to its current incarnation as the global Brand Acceleration Agency. He enjoys cycling and a good bottle of Barolo – but rarely at the same time.
