my name is austin, i am an illustrator and designer currently living in iowa city, iowa.i am driven by my passions and dedicated to improving my abilities and craft, both as a designer and as an illustrator. i aspire to design with purpose and through a thoughtful recognition of need. 

the most exciting design problems that i like to tackle are translating sound and emotion into imagery. solving these puzzles began as a teen, when i’d spend hours studying the gig posters adorning my walls, observing the techniques the artists used and what kind of feelings they gave me about the music. in those moments, the best posters always informed the music, the same way the music informed the posters. There was an acute attention to detail, and an inspiring translation of sound into image.

if you need an album cover, gig poster, flyer, or illustration, give me a shout!
