My name is Ryan Eugene Appleton. I am a graphic designer and college graduate from Shawnee State University. I am a current student at SCAD (Savannah College of Art and Design). And I plan to receive my Master's Degree in the next two years. There isn’t a day that goes by that I am not designing, sketching, painting or brainstorming a new concept. I enjoy the challenge of branding a new product/company or molding the image in my head into a digital artwork. Creating posters and advertisements that are visually striking and engaging is something design represents to me personally.


My work as a designer is a direct reflection of me as a person. I feel that my style and artistic expression clearly shines through the work I create. My Photoshop work has a flare that comes from my love of traditional mediums, such as watercolor and ink. I think that all of the designing I have done so far: for clients, school, and myself included, has led me to this point. My aspiration is to be remembered (make a mark in the world), to design advertising/marketing/packaging/art for a major company or non-profit organization. I want someone to see my billboard, magazine ad, or poster and know that is Ryan Appleton. Read Less

In the last two years, I have had professional preparation with creating for clients: I was hired by the Board of Directors of a local non-profit to design their new logo. The Portsmouth Pantry Garden approached me, stating "We need a modern image for this new direction the Pantry wants to go in". I had the freedom to design a persona for this community service group, and it was exciting and invigorating. After presenting them with about 15+ different concepts and variants, including a wide selection of type treatments, the board decided on the “Sunflower and Leaf” logo. The design work I did for the Portsmouth Pantry Garden really hit home when I was able to see the logo on the signs/ads of the pantry garden, on their t-shirts, and even on the coffee mugs they were drinking out of.

Over the last year I also worked an Internship for the Center for International Programs and Activities. The university office had never had a graphic designer work for them before, so the Director had a lot of projects she was excited for me complete. I designed a new logo for CIPA, to encompass all the work they do for students studying abroad and also foreign students that come to our cities college to learn. I created a brochure to advertise their work, a legend to describe all of the countries our foreign student body calls home, and I also designed a t-shirt for a local food drive CIPA was in charge of, “Crop Walk”.
