Hello, I’m David Ford a freelance art director specialising in Experiential, Shopper and Promotional Marketing. I come from a Sales Promotion and Integrated agency background and have been freelancing since 2009. Over the years I have worked with numerous agencies on a variety of blue chip FMCG accounts, contributing to major pitch wins and hugely successful and award winning campaigns. I usually work remotely but I am always happy to meet to discuss a brief.
I conceptualise and produce scamps and visuals for client presentations, I use all the usual creative applications and can turn my hand to writing when needed. So, if you are looking for creative direction or looking to develop some ideas of your own and need a creative who can draw these up as great looking scamps and visuals then look no further.
