About the speaker
After 12 years as principal of his own design firm focused on corporate communication, David started to teach visual communication and graphic design in the 1980’s.

Now retired from full-time undergraduate teaching, he keeps busy by advising and supervising Master and PhD candidates in design and related fields. A typographer by love and training, David started to collect ephemera for its wide range of typographic styles – some good, some bad and some really ugly. The study of ephemera has recently received renewed interest from researchers in the Social Sciences as ephemera communicates the “common folk’s” needs, wants and desirers.
