I'm David Montrose, a London-based art director and designer.
I am currently Head of Design at Octopus Group, a 65-strong full-service marketing agency based in Farringdon. My role involves art directing and managing a team of designers, working with the creative director, creative team, heads of copy and digital, internal and external stakeholders, to deliver high-quality work in line with client briefs.
It is my job to take ultimate responsibility for developing and maintaining the quality of the agency’s design execution across all stages of development, from estimating project timelines and budgets, pitch work, motion design, UX and wireframing, to final deliverables. I am part of the senior management team, consulting regularly with the board on continuing operations.
I'm passionate about great products; how design can influence people, and how that can in-turn be used to create positive outcomes for businesses.
