Album Artist was started in 2006 with a very simple goal; I wanted to be a design rock star who serviced rock stars, creating captivating artwork for their shirts, posters, and albums. Since those days, I've grown to offer many more services to a wide variety of businesses.
Douglas Brown was born in Panama City, Panama. He and his family moved to Austin, Texas at an early age where he continues to live and work. Mr. Brown attended the University of Texas at Austin and graduated with a degree in art, focusing on painting. After being commissioned by the City of Austin and a number of other businesses to create murals, he taught himself computer based design and founded Album Artist.
At Album Artist, Douglas combined his passions for art and music , working with local musicians and venues to produce promotional material and album covers. Eventually, Mr. Brown expanded his operations to work with local businesses producing brochures, logos and other sales materials.
When Hollywood started coming to town, Mr.Brown began offering storyboard services to the local film community. He has since worked with national clients such as iRobot, Perry Ellis, Wendy's, GE, MTV, Trojan-enz, Domino's Pizza, and other production companies.
