Branding & Graphic Design
David Stroud • About & Work
Abridged Biography (for Awards Organisers and the Curious):
David is one of the country's favourite designers 😉 Since the 1990s, he has been working with established companies, startups and individuals on multi-channel design projects. His work spans graphic design, artworking, web and mobile user interface design. He graphically designs absolutely anything — from advertisements and corporate marketing materials to business branding and even ebooks. When not designing, you might find him behind a camera lens, capturing the energy of live performances (particularly live music and festivals). David lives in Edinburgh, Scotland with his lovely girlfriend and no dogs. Thank you for visiting! You are most welcome to browse recent projects below, and/or get in touch...

Edinburgh-based choreographer Janis Claxton, who has worked internationally for over 30 years, needed a new website to perfectly showcase her award-winning work.
After working closely together with a sketchbook to agree on the best layout for the new site, simplifying its content and structure, the design was implemented on top of the latest version of WordPress with a custom theme designed just for Janis.Continue reading
I recently had the pleasure of working with international fashion retailer M&Co. I designed their Autumn/Winter 2015 advertising campaign (which ran in the national press), as well as a one-off 8-page insert for a national newspaper and incorporating photography from their latest catalogue.
12months12books started life as a side-project while creating my 2016 Thank-You cards. After seeing some beautiful letterpressed bookmarks, the idea of producing a bookmark which would encourage year-long reading and the discovery of new books was born!
MBElectrical is a family-owned electrical contractor working across residential, commercial and industrial sectors. They pride themselves on providing the highest quality of workmanship, reliability, value for money and excellent customer service.
Their identity needed to reflect these values and set them apart from other electrical contractors. I have worked with the company’s directors – George and Paul – over the last few years, originally producing their new identity and business stationery, and more recently designing their new responsive website, various marketing materials, van livery, and signage for their new office.
Pulse College provides some of the industry’s leading training courses in audio, music, film, gaming and animation. I recently completed a Sound Engineering Diploma at Pulse, and got to know the Directors — Tony, Aidan and Naomi — who are some of the nicest and most talented people I’ve met 🙂
I worked with them over the course of several months to design a new identity which was applied to a new website (which I also designed for them), their promotional videos, email newsletters, prospectus, and the signage used inside their studios.
