Tim Davis

Having studied and worked in design I moved from Sydney to Melbourne in 2009. Based in Prahran, I freelanced for small business clients as an independent designer.

I'm currently working as a Principal Designer with Bound (boundinteractive.com).

When time permits, I also like to draw, illustrate, animate and make art.

As a consultant I'm an expert at selling the value of design and communicating concepts. I pride myself on being able to talk to colleagues and stakeholders at any level. My ability to communicate is my greatest professional skill.

As a design leader, I get the best out of my team by being collaborative and inclusive. I recognise that ideas come from everywhere and that they're stimulated by process.
