Dave Linabury


If everyone is doing X, David Linabury does Y. He’s been in the agency world since the age of four, when he and his sister were models in an Opel ad. He studied illustration at the College for Creative Studies, where he teaches a course on Social Activism in their graduate studies program. David likes surreal illustrations, languages, cognitive biases, handwritten typefaces and thinks no meal is complete without cracked black pepper.

David has run the humor blog Davezilla.com since 1998. David has won many awards (mainly for blogging) over the years. But who hasn’t? Awards don’t motivate him. Results do. And coffee. Always coffee.

David has a lovely wife who is also a strategist. Their two daughters seem more interested in banging on tables and worrying about bear attacks on the way to daycare.
