I find David to be the most intelligent designer I’ve ever worked  
with. First, he actually reads the copy to understand what needs to be  
communicated, and then he finds a unique way to bring whatever story  
it is you’re trying to tell to life through design, which he does time  
after time with grace, wit, gusto and refinement.

David, we now have +9 Report on Rehabilitation Research in our hands  
and the design is stunning! You and your team have produced the most  
attractive and informative research report I have ever seen. The  
reaction from everyone who has seen it is fun to watch. The design  
grabs their attention and they are addicted to turning the pages.

On a tight budget, we needed to produce a logo, client workbook,  
professional manual, brochure, and poster. David did not have an easy  
task working with our largely clinical working group, but throughout  
the process he was as good-humoured and patient as he was  
professional. He was detail-oriented, and always met the deadlines as  
negotiated. David was also responsive to our concerns and requests,  
but took responsibility for the direction of the project. Our survey  
of over 150 clinicians who used the materials shows that they  
consistently rated them very highly on attractiveness and user-
friendliness. We are now in our fourth printing of these materials,  
and when we expand them, we will certainly have David on our team.

I have had the privilege of working with David when I headed  
communications and marketing for Harbourfront Centre, United Way of  
Greater Toronto, and Mount Sinai Hospital. David begins by truly  
listening to the client, taking time to understand the goals of the  
initiative, and the desired audience. In each case, he is able to  
absorb and reflect the client’s value proposition, and express it  
visually in a way that sets it apart with simplicity, style and  
beauty. He respects the process and engages the team in creating an  
outstanding product that reflects the organization and its  
aspirations. He meets deadlines, and respects budgets; his endless  
creativity distinguishes each initiative, and his ability to solve  
problems is unparalleled.

David, this is to thank you very much for contributing your creative  
talent and support as a key component in bringing two very successful  
shows to the film and television industry. The Gemini Award design was  
unique, many-layered and a stunning use of photographic image that  
truly reflected television, its makers and the viewer. Needless to  
say, you managed to surpass one design with another in creating the  
image for the 20th Annual Genie Awards. Your choice of colour and  
design throughout the books served to showcase the content and draw  
attention to the critical elements. If there was one thing repeatedly  
complimented, it was your design. We are proud to celebrate our 20th  
birthday with such a classic and strong image statement. Every detail  
of your work showed care, expertise and attention to detail, and was  
so appropriate to our goal of honouring excellence.

David, on behalf of everyone at YMCA, thank you for your help in  
producing this year’s Community Fund Campaign materials. They have  
received a terrific reception from people throughout the organization.
