Prior to joining the permanent staff in 2014, David taught at Ravensbourne across different courses for four years. He is a funded researcher, working on the Data Walking project which examines data gathering and visualisation for designers.
Previously David worked for six years as a freelance digital designer and developer at a variety of agencies across London, and managing his own clients.
David studied Graphic Art & Design at Leeds Metropolitan University, gaining his Masters there in 2006. His work traversed investigating non-linear interactive video, application development, and print outcomes experimenting with format and organisation.
Data Walking is a research project by David Hunter, with the aim of gathering environmental data while walking around a specific area, and through multiple walks over time build a rich picture of that area, a layered multidimensional ‘dataspace’. In this process, we get to explore the potential of data gathering while walking, and then experiment with visualising that data in a variety of ways. www.datawalking.com
