David’s talent for bringing intangible qualities to life is the cornerstone of Living Blueprint’s distinctive style of strategic branding. Channeling right-brain creativity through a systematic left-brain approach and putting everything through the filter of Undeniable Honesty, David guides the LBP team as they identify, internalize, and articulate each client’s true value to develop a strategic brand that is positioned to establish a strong presence in society. David has a history of creative projects. David appeared on The Big Breakfast with Dawn Chubai in 2000, He was the recipient of an “Excellence in New Media and Internet Technology” award from the Computer Master Institute of New Media and Technology and animated a short film, “The Home”, that was screened at the Vancouver International Film Festival (2003), Tribeca Film Festival in New York City (2004), and ANIME in Brussels, Belgium (2004). Living abroad in the ‘90s, David was the lead guitar player with Poetic Ammo, who have broken Malaysian sales records and earned accolades at the Malaysian Music Industry Awards (A.I.M.).
As marketing manager at Terra Remote Sensing in Victoria, David explored the impact of design and animation in a corporate setting. His interest in business and communication led to the founding of the REACH event series, which unites like-minded members of Vancouver’s business community.
In 2004, David started Living Blueprint, a strategic branding and communication agency. By merging aesthetics with a systematic approach based on strong business acumen, LBP has guided companies including Pacific Coastal Airlines, Syntaris Power Corp., and Lift Bar and Grill through the process of discovering their core value and articulating it in a way that forges an emotional attachment with their target audience.
When not bringing brands to life, David writes for ‘Business in Vancouver‘ and may be found speaking at business events, conferences, and colleges. The latest creative project is the Leotartist – this is David’s version of a power point.
