David Robinson

With deep empathy and a passion for research, David brings both his heart and mind to every design challenge. As a senior designer at Thinkso, he distills complex ideas into compelling, clever concepts for our clients.

Prior to joining Thinkso, David was a senior designer at The Metropolitan Opera in New York City. There, among other accomplishments, he designed its 2017–18 advertising campaign and created a multimedia recruitment campaign to attract a young first-time audience. He has also held design positions at The New School, BBDO, and HarperCollins. David has also done design work for Buzzfeed, Parsons, Gensler, Johnson & Johnson, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. His work has been recognized by his peers with awards from EduAD, the Society of Typographic Arts, and MarCom. And he has been an adjunct professor at Parsons School of Design and Pratt Institute.

David holds an MFA in graphic design from CalArts and a BA in biology from Oberlin College & Conservatory. Off the clock, he can be found rifling through a woodworking toolbox or picking out the perfect hops for his next homebrew. David lives in Brooklyn’s BedStuy neighborhood with his wife, daughter, and dog, Moose.
