> David Puketza


Jack of all trades. Why settle for one? All design disciplines inform one another, so I find traversing across borders to be a very healthy practice and something I indulge in often.


Collaborating, working solo, or managing teams, I deliver design that is clear, emotive, on-brand, and gratifying. I'm primarily a visual designer/art director with budding interaction design skills. A pro-am photographer, I'm skilled at 'curating' the environment or people to tease out the potentials within. I have worked in CA, NY, and Paris, France.

Design 100%
UX/UI 90%
Branding 100%
Writing 80%

Trained as an architect (UC Berkeley). Embraced digital design/communication early on for the varied nature of the projects. Versatility remains the dominant trait of my 'design personality'. Recently worked as 'art dept. of one' at major non-profit - DonorsChoose.org. Comfortable lending design direction for range of campaigns - multi-million dollar grant allocation, disaster relief, targeted resources. UX, print, animation, video, environmental design. A published writer, I enjoy generating narrative copy that enhances the visional experience. I have sold art for green money and have exhibited in small galleries and was granted my first artist in residency last year. And for a few months, I worked as a pvt. detective and actually had to ask: "Have you seen this man before?"
