Hi there, I’m Ryan Rushing!

I’m a design lead, marketing manager, lettering artist, designer, and front-end developer, and this website is largely geared towards showcasing my lettering and branding work. (If you’re curious about anything else, check out my LinkedIn page.)

Rachel and I have been married for nearly 13 years, and we currently live in Texas with our dog, Rainbow.

I love using italic gothic calligraphy, funky display type, and any other hyper-decorative letters that push readability to shape the meaning of the content in my lettering work. When I’m creating a brand identity, I generally center custom letterforms and shapes to build up emotion.

Outside of artwork, I’m inspired comic books, mythology, and anything spooky. I also really enjoy learning about astrophysics and the history of witchcraft, and I have no problem staring into the stars at night and letting random thoughts float through my brain.


I’m available for speaking engagements, and previously I’ve spoken about thoughtful and intentional design to:

  • Shopify UX
  • Creative Mornings
  • National Student Show & Conference
  • Southern Methodist University
  • Texas Women’s University
  • East Carolina University
  • and more!


I’ve also led a number of local workshops on how to get started in a creative field, and I’ve taught Expressive and Experimental Typography class at the Art Institute in Dallas.


If you want to work together on a project — or if you want to request a speaking engagement— please reach out!
