David McLeod is a multi-disciplinary Artist and Illustrator. Originally from a small coastal town in Australia, he now lives and works in New York City.
His work is driven by a curiosity for exploring new methods of visual expression through CGI, with experimental materials, simulations and generative methods playing a central role in his creative process. Employing this approach David McLeod creates 3D environments, typographic treatments and short format films characterized by vibrant palettes and organic motion.
“The Colourflow pieces are a set of motion experiments inspired by this type of collective motion. I set out to explore different properties of the flocking motion and how to break apart and then collect the group in ways that felt organic.” McLeod pushes the surreal quality of each piece even further by creating iridescent treatments and various color changing filters.

In 2015 he received a Certificate of Typographic Excellence from the Type Directors Club for his Amfursand series.
Australian digital artist David McLeod creates amazing animations and renderings of moving particles trapped within invisible spheres or cubes. “I think we all find the flocking behavior as seen in a school of fish or flock of birds a little hypnotic,” he shares with Colossal.
David has had the pleasure of working with a variety of Agencies, Clients and Artists including: Toyota, Motorola, Calvin Klein, Omega, Mastercard, Canon, RGA, Grey, Bloomingdales, The Boston Globe, Variety Magazine, DDB, Droga5, Saatchi & Saatchi, M&C Saatchi, EnergyBBDO, Greenpeace, Nike and Wired UK.
