Hello! I am a UX/UI Designer with a background in architecture, graphic design and illustration living in New York City. Many of my best ideas come to me while I am practicing yoga on my slackline beside the Hudson.
I am dedicated to channeling my rigorous skillset, empathetic spirit and innovative problem solving skills toward creating products that contribute in a meaningful way. Challenges are enthusiastically approached with a robust analytical method and strategic thinking process carefully balanced with a refined sense of visual design. Experience as a slackline yoga teacher has taught me the power of listening, as well as the cultivation of patience and empathy to authentically connect with the goals and needs of others.
I love to make beautiful functional products that are easy to use and am constantly on the look out for innovative techniques and the opportunities to implement new ideas. My goal is to create products that make positive impacts on people’s lives, inspiring them to be become the very best they can be.

Dustin was hired to art direct the animation sequences on the documentary 2012: Time for Change. It was an ambitious project and she fully delivered and surpassed our expectations. The animation was considered by everyone to be the standout highlight of the film. She is a pleasure to work with, and delivers top-notch results.

As an Illustrator and Creative Director, Dustin Lindblad is an absolute pleasure to work with. She offers an intuitive, unique touch to all she creates, acumen mixed with a deep sense of beauty and an innate ability to grasp the ethos of a project. I highly recommend her for both original art work and the creation of cohesive media assets.

WHAT I LOVE TO DO
I spend a lot of time upside down, twisting around in all sorts of positions and finding my balance on unstable surfaces- usually a 1″ wide piece of webbing, and often on other people. My slackline and acro practice has taught me to look at the world in many different ways.
Moving through transitions my view point constantly shifts and evolves, creating countless perspectives.I focus hard to find the stillness, the moments in between.The practice becomes a living study in figure ground, a balance between the movement meditation and the reflection.
In an Age of Movement, Nothing is more critical than Stillness.
