Hi there, I’m Ryan Rushing!

I’m a lettering artist and designer currently living in Texas with my wife and two dogs.

I enjoy using decorative letters and letters that push readability to shape the meaning of the content, and I’m inspired by calligraphy, comic books, mythology, and movies (especially horror). I also enjoy reading about astrophysics and the history of witchcraft.

Speaking

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

  • Shopify UX
  • National Student Show & Conference
  • Southern Methodist University
  • Texas Women’s University
  • East Carolina University

Workshops/​teaching

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.
