Mark Bult Design


Mark Bult was born in the Windy City, raised in Silicon Valley, and finally escaped the 'burbs to take up residence in San Francisco's Mission District.

He started his first business when he was 18 and quickly rose to fame and amassed a fortune that would rival kings and oil barons. This allowed him to retire from the glitterati lifestyle in 2001, when he parked his Lear jet and took a low-paying job in the nonprofit sector to try to "save the world" or something. A few years later he — having saved the world — joined tech media company CNET, and when told he could choose what his business card read, decided on the title Design Guy.

He has 19 years of traditional design experience and 11 years of web design experience.

Mark dabbles in photography over here and writes about design, technology trends, small furry creatures from Alpha Centauri, and whatever else catches his fancy, in his blog.

He lives and works in San Francisco with a redhead, a white cat, numerous Apple Macintosh computers, and no tea.
