Hi, I’m Ryan Hayes—a designer, art director, letterer, illustrator, and maker (of things, music, and pasta) from Philadelphia. Most recently, I designed and art directed children’s books, dreamt up gifts and games, and won Best Costume - Halloween 2016 at Chronicle Books in San Francisco. Before that, I made children’s books, mini kits, and a couple of beer books at Running Press. And before that, I helped design a book, a couple of t-shirts, and some space patches with The Heads of State.
While book-making and product design are near and dear to me, my capabilities and interests extend even further to branding, packaging, lettering, illustration, and writing.
Let’s work together.
