As director, Williams will be responsible for managing many of Boston College's print marketing materials, and for creating and maintaining the graphic images the University uses to represent itself, said OPPM Director Ben Birnbaum.
"David will be a great asset to the office, and to Boston College," Birnbaum said. "He understands universities and at the same time he is a remarkably thoughtful and perceptive designer."
Prior to arriving at Boston College, Williams was art director and senior designer for Wechsler & Partners of New York City, a graphic design and marketing studio with clients in the financial services industry. From 1992-95, he was senior designer for Design Writing Research, a New York City-based studio serving cultural and educational institutions.
Beginning in 1985, Williams was an administrator at Long Island University, where he was assistant director of the university's honors program and later coordinated programs for New York City public high school students. From 1982-84, he was assistant director of the College Venture Program at Brown University, which assisted undergraduates planning a leave of absence in procuring entry-level jobs.
Williams holds a bachelor's degree in political science from Brown and a bachelor of fine arts degree from the Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art. He also attended the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston from 1984-85.
