Ryan Wood is a designer currently finishing his last quarter at Portfolio Center. A photographer turned designer, he has a sharp eye and an obsession for detail. Influenced by his travels, which have taken him most recently to Japan and Southeast Asia, he draws inspiration from different cultures and ways of life. He designs at the service of great thinking and finds purpose in giving life to powerful ideas. As he strives to build a mastery of his craft, Ryan is motivated by like-minded collaborators with a dedication and respect for the work they do and, who, like himself, relentlessly pursue the magical, wondrous, spine-tingling, hair-raising, goose-bumping feeling that amazing work can and will create – a philosophy, a way of working, which he hopes will take him on many adventures in his career ... and in life.
