About Me

Growing up in Houston, Texas, accessory designer
David Hodges was fortunate to encounter teachers
who fostered his creativity and love of fine art.
These teachers recognized his unique talent and
helped developed his tactile affinity for leather
working, jewelry making, and sculpture.
David started his career as an Art Director at a top
ad agency in Houston. Continually seeking experience,
he then moved on to a product marketing
company where he served as an Art Director and
Merchandising Manager. In these positions, David
gained extensive knowledge of brand development.
David Hodges’ entrepreneurial spirit led to the
creation of his own design firm in the mid 1990’s.
Hodges Design focuses on national consumer
product goods companies primarily in the
housewares industry. From directing photoshoots,
package design and ad layouts to product
design, print management and video production,
Hodges has many talents.
Feeling the need to get back to basics creatively,
David set up a leather workshop in his garage.
It was then, making belts, bracelets and watchbands
for friends and family that the thoughts of
a new business venture started to take shape.
Today, David lives in Dripping Springs, Texas with
his wife and two boys and is focused on making
handmade exotic skin accessories for women
and men.
