Ryan Underwood is a Designer and Art Director in Cleveland Heights.


Currently I am working full-time in-house for a Mortgage institution, but I am exploring new full-time or freelance opportunities.

About

Big Whoop? Who cares?

I am a freelance Art Director and Designer, and I’m currently living in Cleveland Heights, Ohio.

I specialize in delivering thoughtfully built, design driven solutions that are brought to life by an open, collaborative process.


I am a multi-disciplinary designer based in Cleveland (Heights), specializing in branding and visual design direction. Since 2014 I have worked with real estate, and mortgage companies like CBRE, JLL, and John Buck Company to create unique and interesting branding experiences.

Originally from Chicago, Illinois, I am currently Senior Art Director at CrossCountry Mortgage.

Things I can do


My expertise includes Branding and Visual Art Direction across both print and digital applications. I have extensive experience with developing brand identities and design languages, then bringing them to life across all mediums necessary, from simple product prototypes to full-blown integrated campaigns.
