I am Austin Dean Kimler (ADK - EightyK), I have been interested in Digital Graphic Design since 2001 when some friends and I were messing around being amateur film makers. We had a "Director", two "Script writers", we all filled in for actors and the editing and effects were left up to me. Since I had no idea what I was doing I had to learn it all through whatever means I could. This lead to my love for Graphic Design. From 2004 - 2008 I attended the University of Dubuque (Dubuque, IA) where I earned a Bachelor of Science in Computer Graphics and Interactive Media. I have worked on and off in the Sign Industry since fall of 2003 at Mr. Detail Signs, where I have learned a lot about design and how to work with clients.
I also have two other loves; first and foremost my Wife and then travel. International studies at Dubuque have taken me to places that I never thought I would get the chance to go. I've been all over the world, studied cultures and met some pretty interesting people. Countries I've been to include: Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, Germany, Austria, Ireland, Italy, England, France, and the Czech Republic.
I am currently looking for Freelance work. Feel free to contact me with questions, comments, or opportunities. I hope you have enjoyed my work thus far!
