Born in France in 1973, David first studied Philosophy in its native Brittany before moving to London in 1995 to devote himself to design. Graduated from Central Saint Martins with a 1st BA (hons) in Graphic Design, he shared
his passion for design by teaching at Central Saint Martins and giving lectures at various universities and conferences.

of the most inspiring and renown projects.
Working on projects from book design to branding, exhibitions and art direction, David has developed strong relationships with clients such as Barbican, British School at Rome, Taschen, Royal Academy of Arts, TATE, V&A, Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners, Harvard GSD and many others.
