My name is David James Sturgess, and I am a Graphic Designer, Illustrator, and Journalist, based in Bristol.
I have recently finished a Graphic Design internship with global coffee charity; I AM NOT A BARISTA. I have also held a similar position with Bristol lifestyle brand Only Green in the past.
As a Graphic Designer, I have worked for clients as far afield as the US & Australia. The latter being the result of an ongoing relationship with Pass-Port skateboards. I love working with clients of all shapes & sizes, it’s the best! I am constantly experimenting, thinking up new ways to mix up and hone my craft. I believe myself to be exceedingly well organised, having juggled internships, full-time work, and freelance design jobs for the past nine months, all the while finding the time to fill my portfolio with personal projects and illustrations.
I have achieved an MA in Journalism, as well as a BA in English Literature and Language. As a result, my written and verbal communication skills are well-honed and an essential part of my craft. Perhaps the best example of this would be my MA final project, a 24-page magazine, written, designed and photographed by myself, (link available on request).
