The Lindstrom Company is an insight-driven consultancy working across the globe with a wide variety of clients. It is led by Martin Lindstrom; a Times top 100 influential nominee, NY Times best selling author and keynote speaker. Since early 2013, Lindstrom Company has worked with David on a number of projects, in support of our innovation workshops with our clients' management teams. The aim is to create new brand direction through innovative concepts. Our first project together was with Lowes Foods in Winston-Salem, NC. Both Martin and I noticed the incredible talent Mr. Stanley possessed. He is able to combine creativity, strategy, and design all into one. Since then we have come back to Mr. Stanley every few months asking for his support in ideating new concepts for our clients. A true asset and someone we feel privileged to call a partner.

David is a tremendously talented and thoughtful artist who consistently exceeds our expectations. His attention to detail is remarkable, especially when we’ve needed historical or geographic accuracy. Always going above and beyond, David's work exudes extra effort. He tirelessly strives for our complete satisfaction, and we’re always proud to have his work in our publication. And not only that, but David is also a wonderful collaborator, and just a great guy to work with!

David Stanley is one of the most talented illustrators/designers that I have had the pleasure to work with over my career. I've been working with David since 2013 and he has always delivered exceptional, high caliber work. His creativity, attention to detail and eagerness to please his clients makes David our go-to designer. We have used his artwork in presentations to land major customers and continuously receive rave reviews from our existing customers on how well his work captures the essence of our innovative concept work.

Jaime Scholl - Customer Innovation & Strategy Manager - Baldwin Richardson Foods

I've worked with David on advertising projects for over 20 years and more recently on numerous movie poster and book cover projects for which he has provided illustrations. I love his creativity, his ability to collaborate and to understand marketing objectives, his versatility, and the sheer quality of his illustration. I recommend him for a wide range of illustration projects requiring a high level of creative thought and technical skill.
