2018 One Show Interactive & UX / UI Jury

David DeCheser



New York

David is a VP, Group Executive Creative Director and seven year veteran at R/GA. His work there spans A.I. to connected devices to omni-channel retail to conversational UI for clients like Carnival, Marvel, Michael Kors, and Volvo.

Pivots have kept life interesting — his education pivoted from Computer Science to the Arts, his career from Graphic Design to Digital. And somewhere in there he pivoted from a Hair Metal to Funk band — but that's a story for another time. Most recently he's pivoted his experience in product/service innovation into campaign storytelling for clients such as LEGO, ESPN, and Coty.

In his "free time" he mentors startups in the R/GA Venture Studio and oversees the Behavior Design curriculum in R/GA University. Along the way he's picked up some awards, judged some shows, had his work featured in industry and design publications, and drank a lot of coffee. Constant change is what inspires him, but keeping up with his son Roman is what rewards him. Whenever he can, he reads comics.
