Clark also founded Seattle-based Asterik Studio with his brother Ryan and friend Demetre Arges in 2000. The design studio has done CD packaging, poster art, web design, and merchandise design for hundreds of artists including Liz Phair, P.O.D., and The White Stripes. Based on their design experience, Don and Ryan authored a chapter in the book New Masters of Photoshop, Volume 2 (ISBN 1590593154).

In 2007, the brothers left Asterik to start Invisible Creature.

Don was nominated for a Grammy for Best Album packaging for The Folds' Secrets Keep You Sick. Don lives in Seattle, WA with his wife and two children.

On August 12, 2009 in Seattle, WA at El Corazón Demon Hunter announced that Don Clark has left the band to pursue his career in graphic design and to be with his family.
