Dustin Youngman

Senior Designer

Already a talented and passionate designer, Dustin Youngman joined Gardner Design after testing the waters as an intern for four months. Lucky for us, he decided to dive right in.

He has several years of design experience, and realized his calling while working in the marketing department for a dental office. He began using Photoshop, and taught himself the rest of the Adobe programs. It was then he decided to return to school for a new degree—in design.

Toward the end of his program, he made his move. He’d always admired the work of Gardner Design, and took a chance on emailing Bill for a portfolio review. That chance paid off.

Dustin credits German designer Christoph Niemann with influencing his open approach and not being afraid to put yourself out there. He’s grateful for how welcoming and generous the design community has been—and looks forward to returning the favor to up and coming designers in the future.

Dustin values the importance of design as a profession, and is honored for the opportunity to help each client realize their own personality, to “anthropomorphize” them, instead of a cookie cutter approach.

When he’s not creating brilliant, bold designs, you’ll find Dustin enjoying the finer things in life—cooking, fishing and enjoying time with his dog, (appropriately named) Karma.

Let’s dive into this thing.
