Design for Web and Print by David Butterworth

Design isn't just about making stuff pretty, it's about communication too. I am inspired by good design and specialise in graphics both online and offline.

I enjoy the process of creating and participating in many different projects, working for busy design consultancies and varied clients.

The communicator from Star Trek, first seen in "The Cage" (1964)

As a sci-fi fan I love the Star Trek communicator. Not a great design but the concept was there. People built on the dream. Sadly it took around 40 years till we got anything like it and these days we are still struggling for that clear signal.

There is no such thing as perfect design, tastes change and the market with it. I've been designing for a number of years and seen fads come and go, companies constantly tweek and adjust their brands.

Today's web is not set, who knows where it's going? All I can do is keep in touch with tech, so I can offer an insight.

As a designer

I have worked with many print processes and I know how to get the best out of modern and traditional methods.

I have a good understanding of exhibition spaces, producing anything from small displays, to pop-up systems and full stands for national exhibitions, AGMs and political party conferences.

Photographs

I love portraits and having studied the history of photography, I've learnt much from the masters, however I'm just a hobbyist.  But I’ve exhibited throughout the UK and Europe, some of my work can be seen here.
