David Pohlmeier

Since 2001, I have provided design and communications consulting services to clients all over the world. With a dedicated focus on strategy, I design specifically for each client and for every project. I believe that careful planning elicits great work. Every project is a new journey. Upon completion, my hope is that each will be described by having these characteristics; timeless, strategic, and refined.


I work as the Director of Communications and Design for Community Consolidated School District 59 in Arlington Heights, IL. In this role, I oversee the communications at the district level and at all 15 of the district’s schools.


Mountain biking is a favorite hobby of mine. I’m lucky to serve on the board of directors for the Chicago Area Mountain Bike Riders as the Marketing Director for the North Region.


For just about 15 years I have taken on many consulting projects under the name Rhyolite Design. While I don’t market myself under that name anymore, I still enjoy some extra design work from time to time.
