My name is Ryan Cohen.

I'm an art director and a photographer. This is my resume.

 

A Jack of a few trades...

 I design graphics for really cool companies. I also make websites for some of those really cool companies.
Sometimes, I photograph people too.

I’m a strong conceptual thinker who has a keen interest in all things related to the Internet. Committed to having an impact on the future of any client that I work for, possessing the enthusiasm, initiative and commitment to learn and develop my career in this fast paced and growing industry. My niche is building or developing a strong brand presence, focusing on what is most important for the business. Building a strong brand sometimes requires engagement with your audience whether it is on social media, the internet or developing a campaign. I love what I do. I work fast, and I work well under pressure.
