Hello!


My name is Ryan Ellison and this is my portfolio website. I absolutely love web design and development! I write valid W3C compliant sites with usability and accessibility in mind. I have been working as a freelance consultant in web since the days when tables were used for layouts. I am constantly learning new things about design, no matter what the medium, and strive to bring it all together in my work. I am a graduate of Full Sail University where I obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Digital Arts and Design. That's about all there is to say right now.... so go look at some of my work! Thanks for stopping by and visit again soon.

Thank you,
Ryan Ellison

Design To Change


Magazine
View Magazine: Click to Interact

Details:

A 12 page Magazine done in Adobe InDesign. I designed all typography and page layouts as well as tailored content to support a central message. I chose a movement for designers to make more than just a pretty picture...instead, making changes in the world around them. Within the magazine are several ads and articles directed to deliver content that discusses the new forward-thinking inventions and concepts. The articles were retrieved from various non-profit organizations websites. Stock images altered and used where needed. Thanks to Daniel Kafka for providing me with his original concept sketch artwork for the feature article.
