I'm David Blumenstein, a service designer and visual communicator in Melbourne.


I'm also a cartoonist/comics journalist for outlets like The Guardian, The Nib and SBS Comedy.


In 2012, I co-founded Squishface Studio, Australia’s first open comics studio, which functions as a workplace, retail space and classroom.


Lately I've made long comics about cultists, A.I. generative art and edited a big book of comics-making tips and silly things for kids called Squishbook.


I love working with innovation teams, designers and ethical organisations on tricky service/strategic problems involving humans. AND I want to work more with scientists, journalists or researchers on social challenges. Say hi if that's you.
