FINS UP FERRY

EVENT BRANDING AND MARKETING

The Fins Up DJs started as a passion project and an excuse to throw parties without pretension. Just pure fun, smooth beach tunes and loads of dancing. It grew into an all-out party series with loyal followers craving throwback jams and a taste of paradise in the windy city. 

We created branding, swag and a social media graphics suite to build up hype for a super-smooth river cruise. Beachy colors and retro illustrations helped set the stage for a sold-out event two years in a row. Old Style’s Cooler By The Lake Radler was the perfect beverage partner and co-branded coozies and sunglasses helped keep all the guests sailing in style.

A FEW THINGS 


ABOUT ME


FATHER OF TWO • AQUARIUS • ASPIRING WIZARD


Hi, I'm Ryan. I've been developing top rail artwork for rock bands, dive bars, and other renegades and scoundrels since 2007.

I’m visually driven and love to create.  I’ve been utilizing my art and design background to make lots of cool stuff for at least 12 years – key illustrations, product design, events, brand identity, packaging, multimedia social content and high-level strategic concepts.

I’m passionate about this stuff and I’m very much at home with a large team – partnering with large CPG brands on huge promotions. But I get true satisfaction by helping upstarts craft their voice through hand-crafted design and illustration.

Lately I’ve been inspired by vintage fantasy artwork, the North American wilderness, disco music and old beer cans.

Let's make some stuff together!

Why Outrider?
An outrider is someone who rides ahead to make sure that the rest of the group is ok. They look outward to the horizon and chart new territory. They’re someone who might go alone and take a unique path but always has the safety and wellbeing of the group in mind. Outrider is my ethos for the art I create. To be adventerous and new while holding space for everyone in your heart.
