About Dustin Lee

Passive Income for Designers is a tribe of designers and artists building side hustles with their creative skills. I'll guide you in learning to build your side hustle by sharing tutorial videos, articles, templates, worksheets, and office hours.

Your membership will give you access to content designed to give you a rare look at exactly how profitable side hustles are built. This is detailed information you can put to use immediately that I don't offer anywhere else.

Here are some of the subjects I'll be guiding you through:

  • How to choose a profitable niche for your creative side hustle.
  • Tactics for building an audience that wants to buy your products.
  • Untapped opportunities for getting started in a niche early.
  • Tactics for making more money from each product you create.
  • Unconventional methods for creating your side hustle.

About the Founder of Passive Income for Designers


My name is Dustin and I'm the owner of RetroSupply, a leading provider of brushes and textures for Illustrator, Photoshop, Procreate and Affinity.

I started RetroSupply out of a coffee shop seven years ago. By mixing online marketing skills with graphic design skills I was able to grow RetroSupply to a $400,000 a year business from nothing except a few hours of work each day.

Over the past few years, I've had the chance to speak at Creative South, WMCFest, Dribbble, run workshops on passive income, do private consulting, and recently launched a starter course on LinkedIn Learning.

I live in Portland, Oregon with my wife and three children. I drink a lot of coffee made in my Chemex, am interested in Stoic philosophy, and enjoy playing my 1960s Strat reissue and acoustic.
