About

Hello. My name is Knol Aust. I’m a graphic designer, web designer, interactive designer, and pro creative. I’m also an artist, photographer, activist, and then some. I live in Jackson, Mississippi… Fondren… NoFo, to be exact.

I’m extremely passionate about the web, design, motion graphics, illustration, typography, web standards, user experience & photography. I have tons of experience designing logos for businesses & producing unique online brand experiences. Yes, 2000 pounds of experience. I weighed it.

I’ve designed websites since 1998 when GeoCities was where you hosted sites, AOL was how you surfed the web, and Yahoo was how you found things.

I’ve been drawing illustrations since I was 4 years old. My mother even has a painting of a robin wearing a scarf that I painted in kindergarten… Seriously, it’s in my blood and that scarf-wearing robin was super cute.

I like to tweet a lot about stuff ranging from human rights to equality to geekery to design, so follow me on Twitter if you can put up with my design ramblings and muses.
