For the past 13 years Professor Davis has maintained his freelance consulting practice along with his teaching responsibilities within CUNY. His approach combines right-brained creative problem solving with left-brained strategic thinking. Douglas’ emphasis on Creative Strategy, Integrated Marketing and Creative Direction is translated into a holistic experience for students in the classroom.
In 2011 Douglas founded The Davis Group LLC and continues to offer strategic solutions to client branding, digital and design problems. In addition to client work and giving back in the classroom, Douglas was appointed to serve on the advisory board for New York City’s High School for Innovation in Advertising and Media (IAM). His advertising and academic experience aided him in authoring the 4-year curriculum for the only public advertising high school in the country.
Douglas holds a B.A. in Graphic Design from Hampton University, an M.S. in Communications Design from Pratt Institute and a M.S. in Integrated Marketing from New York University. Douglas is also an Adjunct Professor in the Integrated Marketing Department at New York University teaching Campaign I: Strategy & Execution and Assistant Professor of Advertising and Design within the City University of New York.

I first met Douglas when I was fresh out of college and I came to NYC interviewing and looking for my dream job. He was one of the first people who really believed in me. I remember it was thanksgiving, and he invited me to a dinner he made (yes, he’s an amazing cook) for his Ad students. I remember feeling so lucky to be part of his community.
Professor Davis has always been an advocate for juniors. He will do anything to help get your career started. His passion for teaching and for the industry is addictive. His students are now successful and paying it forward.
