Hey everyone, thanks for stopping by. Just a quick note: this site is live but definitely not finished. It’s a work in progress…

Hi, I’m Ryan Cuthriell (pronounced Q • Thrill) and this is my showcase for design, art direction, branding and web design.

I could talk about myself here, saying “I’m the guy that delivers strategic executions you’ve never seen before” or “I’m an award-winning designer, focused on solving your next creative problem”, or even, “I produce original and creative ideas that make you stand out in your marketplace”… but I’ll cut that short.

These might be true, but I’d rather mention that I live for what I do. It’s passion and lifestyle blended. I think about my projects 24-7 because great ideas can occur anytime. Studying up on advertising, design and typography is a hobby as much as a job requirement. At the end of the day, I find great joy in working with passionate people and helping them craft a new brand or shaping an established one.

There’s a work/life balance right?

Of course! I crave a good bit of rock ‘n’ roll, playing guitar, my Nikon, craft beer, time with my family and preparing a balanced meal that would make Bobby Flay jealous. Football is my vice—the Panthers, the Packers and the (ECU) Pirates are my favorites, coincidentally all with a P.

I live and work in the Triangle—better known as Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill, North Carolina.

Some trivia about me: I’m the only person I know that’s lived in the same house…twice. Ask me about it sometime.
