About me
Hi, I’m Ryan. I am a London-based Senior Designer/Art Director, with almost 15 years experience creating engaging and strategic integrated design and branding solutions for some of the world’s most recognisable brands. Having worked both agency and client-side, I have a passion for branding and specialise in creating and developing meaningful brand experiences both on and off-line, and leading the process from concept through to completion. My career has allowed me to do this across a number of sectors - from government and education to sport and entertainment - in environments ranging from branding and design to advertising and digital. I am comfortable working independently, but have enjoyed leading teams of up to ten creatives, and more recently begun mentoring junior designers via several different networking platforms.
