About me

Photo of Ryan Williams at sunset.

I'm a senior designer who loves to solve difficult problems through systems. Currently at Red Hat, an enterprise software company that was recently acquired by IBM for $34 billion, I'm passionate about brand strategy and how customers perceive brands through visuals. I’m part of a core team that lead a complete rebrand of the company and I oversee the writing, designing, and publishing of brand.redhat.com.

I have experience with logo systems and icon design, web design and development, print design, animation, illustration, and photography. View my digital resume or download a PDF.

Born in Wilmington, NC, I stayed in Raleigh after completing my Bachelor of Graphic Design at North Carolina State University in 2018. In school I had a wide range of experiences, from designing the new Wolfline buses for NC State, to participating in the Disney College Program at Walt Disney World. In 2017, I studied abroad in the Czech Republic and I've travelled to Germany, France, Belgium, and Austria.

In my free time I like to take care of our 75+ houseplants, visit my parents' 3 dogs and 2 cats, learn German, and make cute illustrations.
