Douglas enjoys being one of the variety of voices needed in front of and behind the concept.

His approach to creativity combines right-brained creative problem-solving with left-brained strategic thinking. Douglas is an Emmy Award-winning strategist who serves on the advisory boards of the Poster House Museum CMYK Council, The Type Director’s Club, The University of Oregon’s Masters in Advertising and Brand Responsibility and City College’s Masters in Branding and Integrated Communications. He has found an international audience interested in his approach to blurring the lines between advertising, design and business education. In 2016, Davis wrote Creative Strategy and the Business of Design. He is former Chair of the B.F.A. in Communication Design program at New York City College of Technology in Brooklyn and holds a B.A. in Graphic Design from Hampton University, an M.S. in Communications Design from Pratt Institute and an M.S. in Integrated Marketing from New York University.
