Some History

My name is Dustin Higginbotham and I am a graphic designer and digital media specialist from Des Moines, IA. I use a wide range of skills and styles having experience in graphic design, animation, web design, photography, and video. With each project I take on, I challenge myself to pass expectations and think outside the box to improve myself and my work.

Growing up, I was in love with music and the trials of finding new bands. As I reached out to discover those bands, I found myself being attracted to artists with beautifully designed album artwork, which I became obsessed with. At fifteen, I purchased Adobe Photoshop Elements 10 to learn how to make simple effects and designs through tutorials on Youtube. After putting together a small portfolio of work on Facebook, my high school friends would approach me for artwork and poster designs.

EQUIPMENT

I use Adobe Creative Cloud for all my design, animation, and artistic needs as well as Blender and Pro Tools. I use a Canon 60D and my favorite lenses are my Canon 17-40m f.4 L, 50m 1.8, and 80-200m f.4 L. Run everything on a Macbook Pro 2011 i7 with 16GB RAM.
Favorite

PROJECTS

Album covers are, by far, my favorite projects to work on. With an album cover, you have the chance to listen and hear the story of an aural masterpiece that someone has dedicated their lives into making. An artist entrusting you to visualize their emotions is a huge honor and something I love to do.

HOBBIES

I am a cat enthusiast, Bob’s Burgers’ freak, and a slacker (slacklining). With my love of music, I enjoy playing and creating music as well as collecting vinyl records. I’ve been playing video games since I was five years old and continue whenever I have extra time on my hands.
