Six17 is Dustin Schiltz; I happily make my living as an Art Director in Minneapolis, MN. Right now, I’m sure the burning question on your mind right now is, why Six17? Well, my name is relentlessly mispronounced, my birthday is June 17 (06/17) and I thought it would be easier to remember. Beyond being the day I fought my way into this world, June 17 is also Bunker Hill Day: the bloodiest day of the Revolutionary War. There you have it; now you can go flex your new found history knowledge on someone far, far beneath you.
Outside of design, I am equally stoked ripping some virgin powder in the Colorado back country, going five-hole on a goalkeep that bites too hard on my first deke, and avoiding trees after clearing 20 foot gaps on my trail bike. I find those with the most intense and wide variety of experiences often have the most passionate and interesting point-of-view from which to draw their inspiration. That’s me in a nutshell.
So now that you know a little about me, maybe you should tell me a little about yourself or maybe you have a project that would be right in my wheelhouse, either way feel free it drop me an email. I’m always game for a challenge.
