I’m David McGillivray, and Studio DMCG Inc is my design practice. I’m a Creative Director and Designer based in New York, and have spent the last thirteen years helping to bring brands to life through strategic design.

What I Do
My real value comes from years of hands-on experience at a Creative Director level, both leading design in-house, and working independently with startups; uniquely positioning me to provide the kind of holistic design solutions that are typically expected to require a larger design firm.

I work directly with my clients, who normally hire me for:

→ Brand Identity Design
→ Digital Product / Web Design
→ eCommerce Design
→ Photography Direction

I work hands-on with projects, and only work with one client at a time, so that means I tend to look for larger, well-defined scopes that run for somewhere between 2—8 weeks. I’m a generalist by design, well versed in taking a founding team’s vision and helping turn that into a living breathing entity, from identity through to digital experience.

What I Charge
3
I work on a flat fee basis for projects, so I’ll quote you a single project price instead of an hourly rate. Most of the works showcased on this site took around 3—8 weeks to complete, and cost somewhere in the region of ~$45k—$150k. The scope of work, complexity of the problem, and a host of other influences are factored into my pricing, meaning every project is different.

Getting Started

First up, the best thing to do is shoot an email to hello@dmcg.co and tell me a little bit about you and your project (including rough timelines) upfront. If you have a project in mind that you think I’d be a good fit for, let’s talk!
