I'm David Varhelyi. Welcome to my website.
Maybe you're here to see some of my work. If that's the case I feel like I shouldn’t waste any more of your time. As a Creative at B-Reel, I've created glorified hockey ads for Gainomax, reading experiences for Storytel and dystopian insights for Netflix. I've also worked with companies like Klarna, GANT and H&M Home. One day, I can tell you more about them.
If you're still reading, I can only assume that you're interested in me as an individual. I often find my mind wandering in unexplored directions, constantly trying to make sense of the world. Trying to break a conventional surface to find substance. Taking cognitive detours to understand why South Korea, a country located pretty far north, has so much spicy food compared to its neighbors. Explaining a commercial with Aristotle’s virtue ethics might sound strange and irrelevant but it sure did start an interesting conversation.
You might be wondering what kind of credibility I have to say all of this. I don’t think listing the local newspapers, podcasts and subreddits I follow will convince you. It seems more suitable to talk about my formal education. I am trained as a Digital Media Creative at Hyper Island and have also studied Psychology, Philosophy and Political Science at Stockholm University, Södertörn University, and Michigan State University.
In my spare time, I create websites through simple language and design for me and my friends. One year, on Valentine's Day, I created my own dating website and for my friend's birthday I made a celebration of his hashtag. This is my website. I coded it myself, just so I could feel free from conventional ideas of what a website should look like. I hope you like it, even though it has some flaws. Flaws are ok though. I, for example, have more than one. Maybe that’s my way of saying that in everything I do, I want to be personal and that this website is me and about me.
I hope you feel like you know me a bit better by now. Maybe you want to become my boss, colleague or friend. In case you are interested in knowing more, find the suited up David on LinkedIn, the conventional David on Facebook and the staged, post-ironic David on Instagram. If you just want to reach me, send me an email.
