David Sterling completed his undergraduate studies in fine arts at Oklahoma City University, and his MFA in design at the world-renowned Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills, MI.

His training there was based on the Bauhaus model of interdisciplinary arts; as such, students were trained in 3-D (interiors, architecture, product and exhibition design) as well as graphics projects simultaneously. In 1978 Sterling relocated to New York City and was named Art Director of ID: The International Design Magazine. After three years there, he launched his first design business. During its 12-year tenure he acquired clients ranging from Barneys New York and Citibank to Estée Lauder and Liz Claiborne. In 1993 Sterling refined the focus of the business and launched Worldstudio, Inc. in New York City, and Worldstudio Foundation, a non-profit organization that continues to support the careers of disadvantaged and minority students of art, architecture and design. He later expanded his business into Latin America with the launch of Worldstudio International in Mérida, Yucatán. In 2001 he was awarded the Bronze Apple Award from the Industrial Designers Society of America for his general contribution to the design profession.
