Ryan was a pleasure to work with. Professional, knowledgeable, responsive, creative, accommodating. On two jobs he produced final products the first time. He was open to tweaks that we proposed although it turned out that we kept his original work in the end. Will be using him again!
He predicts what you want accurately. A great communicator with great taste. I still keep getting compliments on the logo for my brand.
When I needed posters made for live music shows, Ry was always my guy for the most important ones. His designs were brilliant and remain treasured art pieces for not only myself but for bands and music fans all over the city.
I was in a coma for two months from a life-threatening accident, and Ry was a founder of the movement that helped me. When I wanted to grow it and create a webpage, he stepped forward. The Haxstrong Charity would not be even half the size if it wasn’t for his amazing work! Thank you, Ry, for all the love you put into everything.
I was beyond pleased with Ry's work. After only a few email interactions, he was able to come up with some amazing logos that embodied exactly what I was looking for. I highly recommend working with Ry.
I was incredibly impressed with his service, including being able to alter and evolve the original logo design until it met my exact needs. I was extremely happy with the end results. Ry is a pro.
Ry took on the role of webmaster for our school's website. He completely rebuilt the website, transforming what had been a rather messy, disorganized, unintuitive site into a useful, uncluttered, informative tool for students, parents, and teachers.
Ry has helped me with logo design, marketing packets, websites and a mobile app. I keep coming back because the end product always exceeds my highest expectations. He's a truly knowledgeable professional with obsessive attention to detail.
Ry has worked with me on various projects and I think very highly of his work as well as his process. The sign that hangs over the door at Venue is 100% satisfying and was exactly what we were looking for. He delivers the goods every single time and is a straight shooter.
Ry took the production quality of our magazine to the next level. His spreads and attention to detail made for the best issues we've ever put out and I'm still not convinced he ever sleeps.
