Hi, I’m David W. Halsell and ddubdigital is my design and development studio based in Seattle, WA. I provide a variety of digital media services including websites, social media and email marketing campaigns, promotional videos, and graphic design. I think user-centric design is the key to engage and grow an audience online, and today’s web technologies offer a wide range of ways to tailor your message.

I focus my work on the WordPress platform, because it’s solid, open source, and it’s now powering nearly 25% of all websites. It’s convenient to use and update for website administrators, as well being secure. I write standards-compliant, valid code that is responsive for mobile devices. Here are some of things I can do for you:

  • WordPress custom themes
  • WordPress child themes
  • WordPress consulting
  • E-commerce solutions
  • Security, Performance, and SEO tuneups
  • Internet marketing/Social Media Marketing


More about me:

I have worked with various forms of digital media since the late 1990s. One of my first Internet ventures was the very first online fabric store that I started with my wife. We documented the trials and tribulations of starting a business in the most popular feature of the site, an online diary— a blog ahead of it’s time! After this, I went on to various projects, including developing an online and CD-ROM (remember those?) license exam materials through Seattle Central Community College, as well as providing design and technical support for artists, businesses, and industrial designers.

I have a BFA (cum laude) from the University of Washington, and an MFA from Carnegie Mellon. For two years I was junior faculty at the University of Washington’s Center for Digital Arts and Experimental Media (DXARTS).

I was editor and co-director of an award-winning, feature documentary film about the history of a small-town alternative music scene: SpokAnarchy!.

I am also an artist, having worked with sculptural systems, audio, and video installations. You can see some of this work here.
