Ryan Rushing is a brand designer, illustrator, lettering artist, and type designer.

Ready Kid, a display typeface based on hand-painted signs

Ready Kid is a versatile, funky display typeface that is inspired by freehand signpainting with a dose of childhood nostalgia. It’s perfect for children’s birthday party invitations, punk band marketing, or packaging for art supplies.

There are six sets of stylistic alternatives, 340+ ligatures, and 1200+ glyphs that cover over 200 languages.

Any team would be lucky to have Ryan’s skills, creativity, and talent! She came midway into our website redesign project and was able to singlehandedly redesign our templates to match the tone and brand we were hoping to achieve. She listened, asked for feedback, and made changes all while maintaining best practices to ensure our website would be accessible. I credit her creativity and skills to the success of our project!
