David: Creative Director

After gaining a First Class with Honors in Interactive Multimedia Design and winning the Interactive Design Prize with University of Ulster in May 2008, David continued with his passion for multimedia design. Whilst part-time freelancing in the summer of 2008, David looked into starting his own business and took the jump in September 2008. Away from the iMac, David will most likely be strumming a guitar, playing FIFA or pulling funny faces at Joel (his son).

Paul: Web Developer

Paul started working for DHD  in January 2016.  6 years experience working on web projects has been driven by a 'minor' caffeine addiction, many late nights and tight deadlines. On his rare adventures away from his desk, Paul enjoys coffee, and being out and about with Heather (to get more coffee). Paul's love for web development is driven by a desire to learn new things; he's been known to do some light car mechanicing, try to learn the cello and occasionally fit in some running and swimming.
