  4. Beauty should be mandatory.
  5. We only collaborate with decision makers whom we trust, and who trust us.

David is Humanaut’s founder and Chief Creative Director. He has spent the last 10 years working as a copywriter, creative director and equity partner in several startups. David worked with CP+B and other top agencies to create integrated ad campaigns for Domino's, Toyota, VW, and Best Buy's Twelp Force, which took home the Cannes Titanium Grand Prix in 2010. He started Pale Dot Voyage in 2011, building apps and offering creative services to agencies and partner startups. With the addition of Andrew and Alex, he founded Humanaut with the belief that creatives can and should be building the next great tech startup companies, and helping brands re-imagine their products in the digital landscape.

Andrew is a co-founder and partner at Humanaut. He's the agency's Chief Strategist and head of client accounts. Andrew spent several formative years pursuing a PhD in literature and the history of ideas, before leaving the program to become an entrepreneur. His first startup endeavor parlayed a long-term romance with the written word and an eye for hidden value into an independent rare book business, where he deployed new technology to revitalize an old trade. Andrew joined forces with David in 2011, launching apps, ads and new startups as Pale Dot Voyage.
