Hello. My name is David-Lee Badger. Deadbeat is the moniker I began using in 2015 for all my creative endeavours. Deadbeat was born out of the desire to work for myself. It started with this idea that I could document the creative community in Belfast whilst offering my services as a graphic designer and illustrator. From there, I interviewed local artists, musicians and business owners, reviewed exhibition openings and films and started hosting events in my city.
A year later, my focus shifted. I didn't have as much time to write about what other people were doing. I found myself busy with design projects from book covers and magazine layouts to creating social media content and rebranding local businesses.
Work with an experienced designer who has developed a strong skill set focused on logo design, illustration, brand identity, editorial design and print production. Experience working within brand guidelines for UK wide traditional and digital advertising campaigns, seeing a wide variety of projects through from ideation to completion. Developing the creative community in Belfast running the longest established monthly Drink & Draw event in Ireland as part of Loft Belfast.
Passionate about solving problems through the medium of design.
