Brent Almond

Brent Almond is the blogger behind Designer Daddy
Creativity informs, fuels, and inspires every aspect of my life. Whether it’s my 5 years as a blogger, 6 years as a dad, 20+ years as a graphic designer and illustrator, or a lifetime of doodling, I approach everything with the question, “How can I make this more informative, beautiful, meaningful, or fun?” This blog is home to my obsessions with pop culture and superheroes, the occasional crafting project, and my adventures being the gay dad of an adopted son. My writing and graphics have also appeared on BuzzFeed,, Huffington Post, and Babble. I’ve been a speaker and panelist at Dad 2.0 Summit, SalonLGBTQ, and BlogathonATX; and I’ve been honored as a BlogHer Voices of the Year and Iris Award nominee.
