Padraic Ryan formed Ryan Design Studio back in 2003 as an Architecture and Web Development firm. Padraic is a licensed Architect by trade, but has been involved with the web since the early 90s. As the years passed, Padraic slowly started taking on more and more web work, eventually phasing out Architecture all together in 2007. As the E-Commerce market continued to boom, so did the number of E-Commerce clients we took on.
Today, we focus solely on E-Commerce, with over 400 projects completed in the last 10 years. We now develop exclusively on the Pinnacle Cart platform.
Long-time collaborator Carlos Rodriguez graduated from Embry Riddle University in 1993 with a degree in business. He spent many years in the post-production industry as a colorist, working on many of the commercials and music videos you have probably seen on tv. He then spent 3 years working for the Pepsi Center in Denver, doing much of their graphic design and web site development. Carlos has always been heavily involved in the design of our sites, but now he is going to be adding production to his repertoire as well.
Joni Ryan (married to Padraic) recently joined us while she takes a break from her 'other' career in which she happens to be a world-renowned Embryologist. We are hoping she makes some earth-shattering discoveries in this field as well. Clearly she is WAY overqualified for this job, but we are lucky to have her!
Ryan Design Studio also has a close working relationship with a number of specialists from SEO and Marketing to PHP and MySQL development. View a full list of our consultants on the bottom of our services page
Padraic handles all of the day to day operation of the business, and he is also the main point of contact. His specialties are in the setup and 'skinning' of the cart, as well as customizing both the design and functionality of the site.
Carlos' specialty is in the overall look and feel of your site. He takes your vision and transforms it into a tangible reality. Carlos also handles a lot of the development and has a knack for WordPress as well which we include with most of our sites.
Being the newest member of the team, Joni gets to do the stuff no one else likes to do, like write 301 redirects and handle data migration. She is also learning the ropes of AdWords and Analytics to help us manage our in-house SEO.
