A little more about me

Hello, and welcome. My name is David J. Stine, I was born in Los Angeles, California. A few years later my family moved to Santa Ana, California.


As a child, design and beauty always caught my eye. I noticed style and beauty were all around me. Naturally, I grew up to be a designer.

After a tour in the US Navy I attended The Art Institute of Seattle. As a native Californian, moving home to Los Angeles was in my sights. Which resulted in my career in design and photography over the years.


I believe there are five to eight photographs wherever you might be. Stop, look and listen, I am certain you will notice it too.

Experience or UX design, UI (User Interface), web-development, package design and publishing are a few of my passions. I rarely match my socks and dream in CMYK. Having worked with established brands like YSN (Your Success Now), SUBWAY®, Kaiser Permanente and many others, I have a strong background in all aspects of graphic design. From creation of an original design concept, evolving or staying “on brand”. I offer years of experience in graphic design, from print to package design, web-development to UX design (User Experience).

I have a strong knowledge of Adobe Creative Suite (InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator, Dreamweaver and more). I also have experience with HTML, web development, project management, UI and UX design.


If you'd like to work together, ask a question, or just say hello—please don't hesitate to reach out. I'd love to hear from you at david@davidjstine.com
