About Me | In a Nut Shell
My name is Ryan Brandle and I am a freelance graphic designer based in Denver, CO. I have a passion for the online creative world and the unlimited potential it provides. I love to create websites, blogs, email marketing campaigns, online advertising banners and logos. I have had the pleasure to work for numerous clients domestically and abroad and I am constantly seeking out new opportunities.
I have had experience working at Cohn Marketing Group, a brand marketing company in Denver, as a graphic and interactive designer. My clients included domestic and international companies ranging from Mont Blanc Gourmet and Seattle Fish Company, to shopping centers with Developers Diversified Realty. I have designed logos at Imperial Headwear as a graphic artist. My design skills were used for branding collateral pieces at Pharmaca Integrative Pharmacy, a nationwide natural and herbal health store based out of Boulder, Colorado. I also worked for Midwest Graphics Industries, a screen printing company, and Popstar Networks, a digital signage company, both based out of Lawrence, KS.
If you are interested in working together, please give me a shout. I would love to hear from you and discuss your needs.
Web Design and Blog Design
Your presence online is greatly defined by your website. It is a crucial tool to communicate your brand and build a relationship with consumers. It represents who you are as a company and what you promise to do. A website is the key ingredient to boosting search engine rankings and getting your name out there. It is a constantly changing and evolving medium that demands a good design in order to keep up with competition and build a loyal following. Blogging is an efficient way to keep people informed about your company and maintains a conversation with your customers. I can make your website a valuable communication tool that relates to your consumers and builds a strong foundation for your company to grow.
Building trust with your audience is an essential marketing tool in today’s business strategy. Email marketing is just another piece of that puzzle. It familiarizes people with who you are and creates a more personal relationship with your audience. If done correctly, using email can significantly separate you from your competition, increase ROI, build a valuable trust with your followers and boost your search engine rankings.
Advertising on the internet is a great way to get your brand out there. Whether it is a static banner ad or an animated flash ad, you can target and reach your demographic very efficiently online. I can create any size and style you need to build your online presence.
Having a well designed logo is one of the most crucial elements of success in today’s world. It embodies everything a company is, what it promises, the feelings and emotions the company represent. If people don’t trust your logo, why would they pursue a relationship? Why would they trust your products? Why would they pick you over the other guy? A logos is usually the first introduction a person has with a company and if it doesn’t communicate the right message it can be damaging. I can help you design a logo that communicates what you want it to.

If I Haven’t Bored You to Death Yet, Here’s More About Me.
I grew up in the United States in a suburb just south of Denver, Colorado. After graduating with a BFA in Visual Communications/Graphic Design from the University of Kansas, I realized my need for knowledge of a world beyond my personal boundaries. I worked for a year as a designer, but could not stave off this lust for an understanding of the world surrounding me. I strongly believed that if I was separated from all things familiar, then I would truly be able to understand the global society in which we live. So, I left my home with nothing but a bag on my back and sandals on my feet in search of the experience I needed. After a year of travel, living homeless and in the good graces of strangers, I have returned to the land of my birth — with more appreciation and more misgivings than I have ever had.
I have traveled to over 40 countries. All I have learned to appreciate, the beauty I have seen, the perspective I have gained I wish to put to use in the industry of my choice: global communication. I have a gift for design and an understanding how the world works. Together they are a communication talent that I will spend my life nurturing.
