Dave has over 30 years’ experience in the industry, working at TBWA and WCRS before joining HHCL in 1987 when it was one month old. He became joint creative director of Chiat/Day London in 1993 and two years later founded St.Luke’s, the world’s first advertising co-operative that was labelled ‘the most frightening company on earth’ by the Harvard Business Review. He then worked client-side as creative director at Channel 4 where he helped start 4Creative. More recently, he founded Karmarama in 2000, watching it grow from two people to 250 and become the UK’s fastest-growing independent network.
Since summer 2015, Dave has been the very excited chief creative officer of Crispin Porter and Bogusky’s London office. In his spare time, he is a renowned screen printer – in 2003, he created the iconic MAKE TEA NOT WAR poster for the UK’s anti-war march. It is now part of the collection at the V&A and hangs in the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art of Trento and Roverto. Dave loves to make work that creates a reaction.
