About

Hi, I’m David. I work on digital, print and branding projects for creative people of purpose. My approach is broad and my aim is to make work that is as simple and pared-back as possible, putting your message first. My skillset is wide and I'm most useful when joining up as your creative partner throughout the life of a project. You can expect informed, straightforward and honest advice, creative direction at every step, and continuing guidance once the project is through the door. I have loads of talented collaborators with great skillsets that I can bolt-on if a project requires. You can talk to me about:

  • Designing and building websites
  • Print design
  • Branding
  • Lettering and illustration
  • Anything to do with country music

Writing

Big Waves, Small Impact
An evolving report on the environmental impact of my business. It's a way to keep me on my toes. To do better all the time.

The Tools I Use
I love to read what other designers use to get their work done. In that spirit I decided to give something back and write a post of my own on the subject

Initiatives

Purpose Scholarship
Pro bono branding support for small, purposeful organisations who put the planet at the centre of their focus.

Purpose Giving
Financial support for small local or regional environmental/climate action organisations.

Other projects

Fast and Steady
The home for all my custom lettering.

Old Gold
I write an occasional email newsletter called Old Gold focused on design and music with a little oddball thrown in for good measure.

Artwork
I studied art at university in the USA, and printmaking here in Bristol. My current art practice can be found at davidabbott.co as well as over on Instagram at @smallworks.

Signal and Noise
I love typography, poetry, cycling in the country and folksong and write about these things over on my blog Signal and Noise. Sometimes my obsessions manifest themselves as t-shirts, which you can purchase at Cottonbureau.
