CD/AD + UX/UI + Designer
Rebrand + redesign of Simon & Schuster's romance novel blog XOXO After Dark.
"I saw your recent redesign of XOXO After Dark and just wanted to tell you how handsome it is – really good looking and effective! Thanks for keeping us up to date and impressive!" ~ Carolyn Reidy, President, CEO at Simon & Schuster
"Ryan was working with three very opinionated stakeholders who had little web design knowledge but a strong conviction that “we’d know it when we saw it.” Not only is the end result beautiful, fresh, and reflective of XOXO’s personality, but along the way Ryan gave us many (but not too many) options, revisions whenever we needed them, and extra designs to help us relaunch the site successfully across all our print, online and social platforms. Even better, he remained unflappably cheerful through the whole process. We love our new site! ~Abby Zidle, Assoc. Marketing Dir., Gallery / Pocket
