I'm Jacobi Ryan. I help creators build systems that connect.
I create to free myself and be a resource for like-minds. I taught myself web and graphic design to build a business that allows me to serve others by being true to myself and doing what inspires me - creating. I'm inspired by working with others who are as intentional in constructing themselves as they are in building their business(es). I believe creating is a spiritual act that requires authenticity, intentionality and introspective vision. That's why everything I design follows the same formula.
"Design is thinking made visual."
The scope of my work ranges from strategy development to high quality implementation. I create systems that simplify your message and engage with your target audience, converting them into your community. I'm your guy when it comes to building your vision online.
I started my design journey using Squarespace back in college. Since then I've worked in Wordpress, Godaddy, Clickfunnels, Shopify, and currently Webflow. My experience has shown me it's less about the platform and more about the articulation of the vision. What's important is telling the story.
Every human is a brand, whether we know it or not. We love brands for the same reason we love humans--they're relatable and provide us value. Branding is one of my favorite parts about the process because it forces us to define ourselves and who we want to serve.
With 10+ years of experience in marketing my own work using organic social media I've learned how to create content that serves the target audience and converts. My experience using Photoshop, Affinity Designer, Final Cut Pro and Logic Pro has given me a diverse set of tools to create engaging content with.
As an artist myself, I had to learn the ins and outs of email marketing by spending hundreds of dollars on courses and trainings. Email marketing is often an overlooked part of the process that connects brands to their audience. However it remains one of the most profitable forms of building and serving an audience.
I worked with professional baseball player Rico Noel to design a website that served as a one stop shop for Rico while also providing ecommerce functionality for his annual kids camp.
I had the opportunity to work with poet and actor Mac Woods on designing a website that showcased his creative portfolio as well as an online store for his brand products and merch. Another piece to this project was the ability to allow visitors to book Mac for events and engagements.
I was commissioned by Wearable Sports Fan to revamp their company website. I was tasked with installing an improved user experience that optimized their conversion rate while communicating the brand's personality. I built this website using Shopify.
Working with Bailey our goal was to put together a portfolio website for her personal brand that allowed visitors to book her for consultations and events. This project required a content management system that made it easy to upload new videos, news articles, publications, testimonials, and events.
