Hi. I’m Ryan.
I’ll get all dewey-eyed and idealistic if I start talking about the whys, so I’ll spare you. When it comes to what, though, I’ve designed: cars, computers, medical equipment, corporate identities, product identities, toys, interactions, research, analysis, aircraft interiors, architectural interiors, packaging, museum installations, information graphics, presentations that sell companies, products, and ideas, and if I haven’t failed completely, maybe some of the psychic landscape that we’ll be inhabiting soon.
My resume is here: CV
Apparently I’m now on Facebook, too.
I’ve also started just dumping sketches, work, photos, and stories here. If you want the baby-food version of everything.
And I’d rather write a dissertation than answer multiple-choice questions. So I’ll stop, and just let you have a look around.
this site looks best in firefox, on a big screen.
Here are some people I know, respect, love, and admire, in various combinations.
Here’s a list of good things, which comes in no way close to everything:
