My name is David Owen Hastings, and I’m a graphic designer and a fine artist. I live and work in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, just north of Seattle, Washington.
In my design office, I work exclusively with nonprofit organizations, helping their development officers and marketing staff connect with donors, supporters, clients and the community through distinctive and dynamic branding and marketing design tools. I provide a high level of experience and expertise at rates my nonprofit clients can afford. Learn more about my graphic design business.
In my fine art studio, I create organic abstractions, exploring patterns, shapes, colors and textures I see in nature and the elements. The simple yet intricate structures of microorganisms appear as recurring figures in my work. Monotype is my primary print medium, which is akin to a painting that is printed. I build up rich layers by printing on translucent papers, which I then collage together, often using machine stitching for added texture. Learn more about my approach to making art.
