CREATIVE DIRECTOR 

GEAR FOR ADVENTURERS  

BRAND IDENTITY, PRODUCT DESIGN, LIFESTYLE MARKETING 

Outrider started as an excuse to build my own brand from scratch. Something exciting and new where I could share my art and ideas with the world. The goal of Outrider is to take the ideas and visuals of Boy Scouts and Roy Rogers fan clubs and these sort of silly childhood secret societies and flip the language on its head.

Instead of getting a badge for shooting rifles you can give yourself a bit of flair for being yourself and participating in your daily adventure, whatever that means to you.

Its gear for adventurers, merit badges for feelings, and insignia for the secret society of scoundrels, scallawags and weirdos.

Since its inception, I’ve created a full product line for a unique lifestyle brand – enamel pins, stationary, bandanas, jewelry and prints – sold online and at pop-up events and markets. In 2018 Outrider was invited to sell a the curated Creative Works Conference market in Memphis, TN.

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.
