got taste. Meet our latest Guest Hunter – the very cool, super talented, ultra stylish Ryan Carl. He was born in Portland, OR, went to college at University of Oregon (Go Ducks!) and got a Master’s degree in Religion from Oxford. Ryan was on track to become a professor of theology before shifting focus to creative pursuits and never looked back. The self-taught graphic designer is Owner / Creative Director / Designer at think + believe + create design studio. Over the years, his client list has expanded and now includes J.Crew, Theory, A.P.C., Tommy Hilfiger, Nike, and Google.
Ryan lives in Park Slope, Brooklyn with his fiancée Jenny and their two rescue kittens, siblings, Otis and Rosemary. He’s into finding inspiration in art and design in Brooklyn as well as taking advantage of the plethora of Brooklyn bars, shops and restaurants. On more than one occasion, I’ve seen Ryan before or after some amazing trip overseas. Some of his adventures include South Africa for the 2010 World Cup and skydiving in Cape Town. Running with the bulls in Pamplona, Spain. India, Argentina and he’s hoping to make it to Australia and Antarctica in the not-so-distant future to round out all 7 continents. Worldly, motivated, witty, and a true individual.
