A renowned design and creative director, David Carson has worked with the world’s largest agencies on a variety of projects, while always maintaining his own small graphic design studio. Currently David is eight months into a freelance gig as “artist in residence ” for ad agency 72andsunny, working on a wide variety of projects. He also serves as design director for Airborne Motors (personal air vehicles) as well as CCO for a new global initiative designed to help rid the world of single use plastics.
