About David Walker
I've been a professional designer for over fifteen years. I started my career by working with an in-house design team at a local college, while still attending college myself. I learned so much more by working alongside experienced designers rather than just sitting in a classroom. I learned to work effectively as part of a graphic design team. While there, I designed flyers, brochures, newspaper ads, posters, direct mailers, business forms, and business cards. I also received the Gold Medallion of Excellence from the National Council for Marketing and Public Relations for a catalog cover design.
In 1997, I became an art director for a local advertising agency. My career there led me to a deeper understanding of the pre-press and print world. I've also learned to work with many personality types and continue to be productive in any situation.
Over the years, I have had the opportunity to do work for many different businesses as a freelance designer, designing both print and website projects. Below are a few of the businesses I've worked with.
• Line-X of Knoxville
• Gina Johnson - Realtor
• Jean-Philippe Photography
• Wolfgang Interiors
• Tile Sensations
• Premier Media
• Jesse D. Nelson - Attorney at Law
• Creative Play & Patio
• 18 Karat Talent & Modeling Agency
• SouthEast Educational
• Pankratz Construction
• City View Magazine
This list only includes one of many real estate agents that I work with. I began designing custom websites for Knoxville real estate agents several years ago. You can see more of those in the portfolio section.
On a more personal note... My wife has put up with me for 20 years and we have three wonderful children. In general, I try not to take myself too seriously and take my design work very seriously. I love design, photography, and art in general. I could sit around all day looking, analyzing, and deconstructing old family albums, the latest stock photos, or even cereal boxes. I've always been drawn to art of all kinds, that's what makes me who I am.
