The "Suit" That Loves Pixels

David Shastry Headshot

Designing beautiful digital experiences is my primary passion. I also have a love for business and have a deep expertise in dealing with technology and strategy initiatives at the corporate executive level. I strongly believe that good design is a vehicle that can influence tremendous change; especially in the enterprise world. I combine my love of design with a sharp business acumen to deliver holistic and user centered design solutions.

Studies show, and common sense dictates, that people adopt technology that is meaningful, valuable and enjoyable to them, and so I work very hard to craft experiences that deliver value, empower business and delight users!

Sidenote: I do love wearing a well tailored suit! ☺

How I Aid My Clients

Trusted Advisor Icon

My life's work is centered around being a trusted advisor, working to drive real, measurable value for each and every one of my clients - big and small

Value means different things to different people. To a CIO or CTO it may mean having an intranet portal that aids employees across the enterprise to do their jobs better; one that they love to engage with and use on a daily basis.

For a healthcare startup, it may mean creating an app that helps patients see insurance and medical statistics at the touch of a button. And for others yet, it may mean creating a beautiful digital experience that breathes their brand story and pulls customers into interacting with them.

I am drawn to stories like these, and work diligently to drive critical value for them.

I am passionate about people

There's many creatives out there that can make beautiful designs, and then there are numerous more business folk that can tell you exactly how to run your business; I am neither of these.

I pride myself in being a digitally minded creative that minutely understands the intersection of design, business and technology, and how this impacts everyday people. I combine this expertise with my passion for people, to craft solutions that empower, delight and deliver measurable and profitable ROI

I aid my clients by marrying my business and creative acumen with three primary areas of expertise:
