Email me - Visit my website - @dheadicar - uk.linkedin.com/in/davidheadicar‎


Senior Creative with over 10 years experience. I label myself a hybrid Designer / Art Director, working across digital,
print, and integrated environments. A dogmatic perfectionist, enthusiastic, driven, all of the above and more,
I bring my passion for design and creative direction into every brief. I have a proven track record of delivering
high-end work to blue chip global brands, on time, no matter how creative or restrictive the brief maybe.
This level of work is achieved by establishing a close working relationship with my client, understanding the brand and it’s goals, to then ultimately achieving the best possible results.

I have gained a wealth of experience through freelancing in a wide variety of agencies in London. I push myself to not be confined or pigeon holed to one particular sector of the industry. This has led me to producing work in FMCG, luxury goods, food and drink, nnot-for-profit, Sports, Travel & Leisure, and fashion sectors. Ive worked on award winning campaigns for the likes of Adidas, Evian, and The English FA. Whilst also contracting at established award winning agencies I also have a variety of direct clients I work with, made up a various sole traders and SMB.

Written testimonial:
David worked with us on a couple of very high pressure projects recently, and he was exactly what we needed. Someone who grasps the task very quickly, whether it be a design job, or simply amending layout and documents. He worked efficiently, and was a great guy to have around. I will be looking to hire him again when the need arises.

Written testimonial:
I recently worked with David on a major project for British American Tobacco at Geometry Global. He is a great asset to any team as he can turn his hand to not only design but artwork and retouching at a very high level. I would highly recommend him.

Written testimonial:
David has worked for us regularly in a freelance capacity and often during the 'dark hours' of pitch work and presentations. He always shows fantastic application and dedication to every project he works on and is consistently ready to go the extra mile. He is happy to take on a brief and to see it through to a successful conclusion; his work is of a high standard and has always met the agency's requirements. I would have no hesitation in using David for future projects.
