About me

Ryan Fitzgibbon is the founder and publisher of Hello Mr. He began his career as a communication designer at IDEO in San Francisco. After three years capturing insights for various design challenges around the globe, he moved to Australia to pursue his own venture in storytelling, ultimately launching the first issue of Hello Mr. In 2014, he moved to Brooklyn to continue independently publishing the biannual magazine, highlighted by New York magazine as part of “the new generation of indie magazines.” He has served as Co-Chair of Communications for the San Francisco chapter of AIGA, and was invited to a trial residency at Benetton’s prestigious communications research centre, studio and school, Fabrica in Treviso, Italy. In 2015, Ryan was named one of PRINT magazine’s New Visual Artists under 30.
