Hi 👋. I am Ryan, the Website and Graphic Designer here at The Social Brand. I handle everything regarding websites, including building, optimizing, and maintaining, to building brand assets, like logos and various printwork, for small businesses. I help ensure that other small businesses are building a digital presence that truly works for them, rather than against them.
I grew up in Maryville, TN in the Foothills of the Smoky Mountains. I originally wanted to be an environmental scientist with the goal of saving the Hemlock trees… After a semester I wasn’t good at the whole math portion of science and changed my major to graphic design. While in college, I worked as a barista at Vienna Coffee Company and became a founding member of their marketing team after graduation. I currently live in Knoxville,TN with my dog June and wife Makenzey. We enjoy hiking, doing photography together, traveling, and serving our community with our church family.
My favorite part of working with The Social Brand is the fact that the work we do through building other’s digital presence helps make small business owners and their employees lives better so they can focus and serve their own customers.
Some “fun” facts about me:
- I have watched the Harry Potter movies more times than is even humanly possible
- It’s probably not an understatement when I say I wave at more dogs and hug more trees than I do people. #sorrynotsorry
- I went through every phase in high school and Facebook has all the pictures to prove it: country boy, jock, preppy, hipster, and (my final form) emo kid. I still enjoy heavy metal, but I’m honestly a hippie deep down on the inside.
Ryan is a web and graphic designer from Knoxville, TN. He holds a BFA in Graphic Design from The University of Tennessee. Ryan loves coffee, photography, and designing interactive experiences (and dogs but who doesn’t?).
