Jon Ringer - Product at Endpoint

David and I worked together on the incubation of an enterprise blockchain platform at BCG Digital Ventures - a pithy effort, to say the least. While he led all things "design" (which he did at an elite level), David's uncanny organization and communication skills allowed him to play a broader and integral role. His deep understanding of engineering process and software development enabled him to both improve team communication, and overall velocity (and he codes!). Beyond his functional prowess in designing and building great products, David brings a rare blend of work ethic, passion, and sincere desire to do great work. You can't help but wish everyone shared those traits, and I'd be happy to work with him again.

Neil Shepherd - Principal at Boston Consulting Group

David is a master of design and development when it comes to building high-quality applications. I had the opportunity to work with David on a significant enterprise blockchain project, and his professionalism, hard work, and team collaboration helped make the project a big success. David stepped in and worked side by side with product management and engineering, and helped create design specs that greatly simplified the developer experience. David has excellent technical and communication skills, and it was a pleasure working together

Carl Sutter - Founder & VP Product at Greenfield Robotics

David is the very best UX Designer I have worked with. He has a great attitude and breadth of skills. For us, he was designing for the latest web UX toolkits, working closely with our engineering team. He has some development experience which helped a lot in the team interactions. He stayed current on the trends and standards from multiple vendors, and incorporated that into his work. He managed our small team of UX designers. He was also happy to contribute to corporate branding, signage, the corporate web site etc. - he always thought about all the design aspects of the entire company.

Jim Howard - CEO at CrownPeak

I had the pleasure of working with David as we grew CrownPeak into the leading global digital experience platform on the market for enterprise businesses. David's enthusiasm for making amazing software shines through with his hard work and consistency. I always enjoyed stopping by his desk to see what he had been researching, designing or strategizing. He always put the company first whether it was giving me competitive analysis, showcasing ideas, building design systems or trying to unify our brand material. He's a great leader and valuable asset for any company who is developing a business.

Stuart Pumpelly - CEO at Virginia Yachts

Virginia Yachts has used David Anthony and Process for several years to launch marketing campaigns, design and maintain websites, develop social media sites and create all graphics and marketing materials for print and web. David has the ability to bring our ideas to reality by using a very simple, clean and efficient process that quickly bridges the gap between our company's vision and final design.
