Hello, World.
My name is Burton.


I'm a Maker

And I enjoy blurring the lines between emerging technologies, image making, art, and design.

Hello, world. My name is Burton Rast — assumed name, mister misterburton logo burton — and I'm an artist and designer living in San Francisco, California.

I have explored and enjoyed a range of disciplines throughout my twenty+ year career, from creative direction, visual design, and motion graphics, to filmmaking, creative coding, and photography.

I've served in a startup, worked on the client & agency sides, and spent seven years at IDEO as a Principal Designer and Project Lead. I presently work as a UX Design Lead at Google and, during off-hours, craft unintentionally moody imagery for both the centralized and independent web.

I also speak at design conferences and industry events, both home and abroad, to connect with, and be inspired by, artists and designers, the world over.

Perhaps worth noting, this site is mirrored on the emoji domain, 🤘.ws, is also viewable at misterburton.com, if emoji domains aren't your thing. 😉
