David Schwartz - Graphic Designer
Billboard Magazine, Radio One, Akon, Prince, Paris Hilton, Beats By Dre,
Originally from the east coast but raised in the Twin Cities from age 8 to 21, I was heavily influenced by music and art. I got lucky enough to be mentored by Prince for 2 years; writing, recording, designing and touring with him. We formed a band that was his opening act on a 2001 US tour. Since then I developed my career as an accomplished ACD/Art Director/Designer and facilitator between brands and artists. In 2002, I set up my own shop in Atlanta designing album covers, ads and handling print for many record labels and artists directly. In 2010 the music industry was on a steady decline, so I closed up my shop. I relocated to Los Angeles to work on campaigns for film and TV shows.

A little more about David Schwartz
I’ve taken on many opportunities to brand start-ups from day one. I’ve witnessed a few companies go from just an idea to a fully fledged successful brand and I love being part of the process. I continue being involved in building brand communication for the online and physical world. Design to me is partially aesthetic and part emotional. I’m a tough critic, so if something doesn’t move me I don’t expect anyone else to be moved.
I have spent the last 19 years giving artists and brands a feel, a tone, and a face. Regardless of project size or specifications, my quality and style applies to all marketing components: Logo, Websites, Social Media Campaigns, Print Key Art. Recently I have received many accolades in the advertising world, including a few pieces for a Social Campaign I art directed and designed for NBC’s ‘Hannibal’. The vintage travel poster art won: one Clio Key Art Award, three Davey Awards, two Promax BDA Awards, and a Shorty Award.
I live to create, and create to live. I’m always chasing whats new, next, exciting and progressive.
