About David Ballard

Children’s picture book reviewer, author and illustrator.

Having studied graphic design at art school in Aberdeen, I started my career by designing theatre posters and set designs before moving into marketing and advertising. Fast forward 25 years and I have now worked on major campaigns for some of the biggest UK and international brands as well as high street retailers.

Recently, I started creating my own children’s picture book series that I plan to publish and already it’s been an amazing journey. I hope to share some development work and previews with you soon.

I also wish to share with you of the amazing books I have come across and read. The work that goes into all of these is incredible and I’m happy to give a shout out to the creators. Check back as I’m planning a few feature interviews too!

I hope you like the site and thank you for visiting. Oh and don’t forget to subscribe to my newsletter!
