👋

Hi, I’m David Wall. I’m a graphic designer and design director. My focus is on identity design, and I have extensive experience in associated disciplines. I sit on the board of the IDI, I co-founded the 100 Archive and I’m an ICAD member. Previously, I was co-founder/director of WorkGroup; an independent design studio. Currently, I'm Design Director at McCann Dublin.

You’ll find me on Twitter, Medium, LinkedIn, or via email.
