"Beautiful designs" is the phrase that comes to mind when I think about Ryan. I hired Ryan as a designer in 2012 after seeing his portfolio and talking with him about process improvements he felt could be made in our organization. I was always impressed with Ryan's ability to juggle multiple projects.
Ryan is the bomb. He's incredibly talented with an amazing eye for design. He also happens to be skilled as a front end designer and in my book...That makes him a unicorn. I worked with Ryan for a few years and I marveled at his design work. But the thing that gets me is that he is also a gifted F.E.D. with a strong eye for Usability.
