Hello 😄

My name is Róisín Ryan, but you can call me Ró.
I’m an Irish graphic designer based in Toronto. I love meeting new humans, whether it’s just for a chat or to work together, so please feel free to get in touch! My main interests are branding, illustration and animation and I love bringing personality into my work. Last year I took part in the ICAD Upstarts programme and this year I am lucky enough to be a mentor for The Big Idea, a programme that helps foster creativity in Irish secndary schools in collaboration with the creative industry. In my spare time I play and write music, read (a lot of) books on my Kindle and entertain my pet turtle, Squishy.
