Born in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, Justin Otstott who is known as Kold Venom in the Hip-Hop industry was creative since a young age.
What started as sketching quickly turned into digital art in the early 2000s. In 2015 Justin launched his Graphic Design business Kold Venom Design. Since then his business grew as he networked with industry-level leaders.
Before he started his Graphic Design business he was a Hip-Hop artist. It was this venture that pushed him to learn how to use the Adobe programs. Working with artists under his independent label Make Moves Empire he learned how to brand and create cover art.
Self-taught through trial and error he spent years working on his craft. It was these humble beginnings that has placed him where he is today.
Since 2015 Kold Venom has worked many major to independent artists such as; Conway, Cassidy, Young Buck, Bizarre of D12, Charlie P, Lathan Warlick, and many more.
In addition to Hip-Hop artists, he has worked with management agencies from California to New York City such as TMWRK Management. These projects included working with Sean Paul, Lil Yachty, and more.
Kold has been credited in many prolific magazines and blogs such as XXL Magazine and Mass Appeal. His work has been seen across the industry including on blogs such as HipHopDX.com and Complex.com.
