Barry Hand

“David is an incredibly talented creative designer, I asked him to join my team during the frantic early days of GrabOne and he played a huge role in our growth and was responsible for the brand creative development. It was very important to have someone who not only was a great designer, but also had the vision to develop a brand across a wide range of media. He is someone who constantly pushes his potential on every brief, is commercially aware and is the right kind of guy needed for any ambitious team.”

Dermot & Dave

“What we’re always looking for – and not always able to find – in any working relationship is someone who gets what our show is about. David got that straight away and brought the personality of our show to life off-air.

Whether it was our fully-wrapped Euros 2016 van (which got mobbed by Irish fans in France), our Cheese & Crackers socks (easily our most popular giveaway item) or our ‘Ah Sure Lookit’ Comedy Tour branding (which is following us on our sold-out dates across Ireland), David has delivered creative results time and time again. Taking direction well from both of us whilst also bringing his own creative spark to the projects and always being so easy to work with.”

I worked directly with Dermot Whelan and Dave Moore on their Dermot & Dave show on Today FM


Ruari Doyle

“David is an excellent creative designer with tonnes of creative ability combined with strong organisational and commercial awareness. Working on very successful high profile b2c and b2b marketing campaigns – David delivered passion, teamwork and results time and time again in a fast paced e-commerce start-up business. I highly recommend David.”

Ruth Hurl

“We worked with David Dooley on our Royal Opera House Live Cinema 2014/2015 brochure. The brochure acted as both a hub of information for the entire season and as a means of showcasing the world famous Covent Garden operas and ballets. David’s work required the careful consideration and design of performance details which included high-quality imagery and synopsis’s, the clear presentation of booking and venue information and the display and requirements of advertising partners.

We were delighted with the finished product which seamlessly merged the requirements of the clients with a beautiful design that would most appeal to our audience. David worked in a very timely, professional manner accommodating all amends, guidelines, budgets and space restrictions. He was a pleasure to work with on this project and I would highly recommend him to other clients.”

I freelanced for Ruth for Element Pictures on a number of projects for Royal Opera House London


James Hendicott

“David took control of the design aspect of GoldenPlec Magazine fairly late in the day and did an excellent job. In fact, having worked on several similar projects, I find David to be amongst the most positive, adaptable and creative designers I’ve had the pleasure of working with. He took total control of the artistic direction of the project, quickly buying into its identity and taking into account its intended audience. What he produced was modern, showed strong development as each issue went by and highlighted the content we wanted to push. He also took all ideas on board and responded well to requests for changes. I’d highly recommend him, and will have no hesitation working with him on any future undertakings.”

Kim Gillick

“I had the pleasure of working closely with David for 3 years as part of a fast-moving, high-functioning marketing team. He is creativity personified and he absolutely loves what he does. With conceptualising skills that are second to none, he has an envious ability to take a business problem and turn it into a creative solution. He excels at leading a wide variety of creative projects across multiple platforms. David’s also a blast to work with and is quite the wizard with puns.”

Kim worked with me at GrabOne as the Marketing Campaign Manager
