MIDWEST FLAIR FEST  

BRANDING, EVENT MARKETING - 2019

I was thrilled to be able to co-produce the Midwest Flair Fest events with artist Amanda Stilwell in 2018 and 2019. Our goal was to bring together the community of makers and collectors who shared a love of accesories from enamel pins and patches to bandanas, jewelry and other wearable art. Sponsored by pin manufacturer, Stadri Emblems, we succeeded in hosting a full house of over 40 vendors with a line around the block at the historic Thalia Hall to get our branded gift bags full of goodies from our vendors.

Inspired by artisan’s guilds, labor unions and community organizations, the Midwest Flair Fest brand gives an air of importance to artists, collectors, fashionistas and all those who are passionate about pins, patches and self-expression.

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.
