Dave joined Cornerstone in 2015 as a graphic designer with 7 years design agency experience and has already worked on some big design work for clients including Alan Kirkham Estate Agents and Linda Lewis Kitchens.


• What aspect of your job do you like the most?

The satisfaction of creating something that looks great and then being able to tick it off the to-do list.

• Which projects have you been working on this month?

There’s been plenty as it’s been a busy month but the highlights are 2 rebrand projects I’ve been working on for Linda Lewis Kitchens and Kirkham Estate Agents. It’ll be great when they are both rolled out.

• Why do you like being in this industry?

It gives me the opportunity to do what I love as a job.

• Describe a typical day at Cornerstone.

Sit down and get comfy (check Football365) before starting a workload to keep the creative mind ticking over. I am constantly flicking between InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator amongst other apps to get the jobs looking their best. I find music helps me to concentrate so Spotify is normally on in one ear. The daily aim is always to complete as many jobs as possible whilst allowing time for the occasional nudge from Wilson wanting an ear scratch.

• What makes Cornerstone different to places you’ve worked before?

A positive working environment means that it’s a good place to be and I think this is reflected in the quality of the work.

• Who makes the best brews in the office?

As a sporadic brew-drinker I don’t feel qualified enough to comment.

• What’s the best thing about working for a non-corporate company?

I get to wear shorts to work!

• What part of office life do you dislike the most?

The traffic noise from the main road can be a distraction

• Favourite Film or Book

Typical man answer but I’m gonna say Die Hard – the first one (The book it is based on, Nothing Lasts Forever by Roderick Thorp, is a great read too)

• Biggest Life Lesson

I tend to live by finding the positive in everything and not having many regrets.

• Favourite Meal

Such a difficult one but I love Greek food so I’m going to go for Kleftiko.
