About

Decibel Consulting & Design is the work of Ryan Baustert - a designer & musician based in Minneapolis, MN.

I graduated from UW-Stout in 2004 with my B.F.A. in Graphic Design. Since then, I’ve held design positions in advertising agencies and in-house corporate settings, as well as operating my own freelance business for the past eight years. I'm also the Creative Director for Iron and Ink Fitness, a fitness and tattoo-inspired streetwear brand.

I have a huge passion for music and the entertainment industry and have been touring and recording with my rock band, Throw The Fight, for the past 13 years. Music and design have always gone hand in hand for me ever since I was 11 years old. That was the age I discovered heavy metal and punk rock along with the work of Art Chantry and David Carson. I immediately knew what I wanted to do with my life and I haven't looked back.

When I’m not in front of a computer monitor or on the road, I’m spending time with my family, reading a book, or having nightmares about my daughter starting to date.
