About Design Reverb

Design Reverb is a journal by Todd Austin, regarding design, development and life as an independent designer.

I have been working as a professional designer for over 15 years. I also enjoy programming (both software and web sites/apps), and recall my first “Hello World” when floppy disks were 5ΒΌ-inch and Basic and C were the languages of choice.

I like to think of myself as a skilled graphic designer for print and web media, who also enjoys photography (who doesn’t), recording music I write for guitar and piano, snowboarding, and spending time with my wife Deanna and our Siberian Husky, Dakota.

My company, Drake Storm Studios LLC, is currently working on several projects, including:

As well as our internal sites:


About this site:
The code for Design Reverb was crafted in Sublime Text and/or Coda. The theme is custom built by myself, and runs on the wonderful WordPress.

The graphics and layout were created using Adobe Photoshop.
