About

As a User Experience Designer, I create beautiful user-centered experiences that are optimized for usability, conversion, and growth. My work has led to increased revenue and deeper user engagement for many diverse clients. I have worked as a designer in one capacity or another for the past 10 years. I've been an in-house designer, part of big creative team at a marketing agency and a freelance "gun-for-hire." My favorite projects are: 1. Designing websites and 2. Designing visual identities. The best is when I get to tackle both in the same project! I love to collaborate and I'm always excited to learn. As a communications major in college, I became a skilled public speaker. I get to hone that skill regularly and there are few things that excite me more than getting to talk about design with other people. If you have a design challenge or enjoy a good microbrew, I'd love to get to know you!

Ryan did a phenomenal job on our website and logo. His artistic design perfectly captures the heart of our organization. After meeting with us he completely “got” our vision and beautifully incorporated every aspect of our ministry into the colors, patterns, and photos he chose. Ryan was absolutely wonderful to work with and accommodated every desire we had for our website. He was friendly, professional, and prompt, and he even explained some of his design aspects in a way that helps us continue to share our ministry more effectively. One donor said the logo itself made her want to get involved with our work just because it is so warm, joyful and inviting! Thank you Ryan for your thoughtfulness, enthusiasm, hard work, and artistry! It's perfect and we love it!

I appreciated the time and effort invested in getting to know us — our particular ethos as a company and our personalities. It made the development of our brand fun, and I looked forward to each meeting as the project developed. You present yourself professionally; your deliverables never deviated from the timeline indicated at the very onset of this project. All those who have explored the website and worked with the branding files have been equally impressed with the thoroughness of your work. Again, we thank you — especially for doing business the old fashioned way even when your medium is pretty techie.
