This week we decided to quiz our newest member of the team, Ryan. He joined us at the beginning of June and has had a month to get used to the office playlist music and tea making politics. So we thought it was the perfect time to talk about design, tech loyalties and tattoos!

Where did you work previously?

Bluestone 360 in Plymouth.

What got you into design?

I didn’t really know what I wanted to do, so in college I tried a bit of everything, from science to music, and in the end I decided design was the one for me!

You play a musical instrument then?

I play guitar but I’ve not played it in a while!

What have you learned since starting at Ready?

This week I have been exporting things from web, some banners and file sizes and stuff like that. It’s been great to get to terms with the nitty gritty digital stuff so soon, but I am looking forward to learning more.

Where did you grow up?

In Bristol.


What inspires your work in design?

I try to be inspired by lots of different stuff, so I look at illustration, tattooing and even interior design and architecture, you can pull a lot of stuff out of it all.

Oh, how many tattoos do you have?

Only one at the moment but I have a full arm planned. I don’t think there’ll be much skin left by the time I’m done!


What do you get up to outside of work?

I like seeing new places, so road tripping with mates, festivals, live music.

Apple or Android?


Song for the office playlist

I’m gonna go for an extreme one, so Raining Blood by Slayer.


Nice! That will definitely wake us all up on a Monday morning! Which brings us onto the next question- are you a morning or night person?


Next holiday destination?

Newquay. Not very exciting I know!

Newquay? Ok, lets change that, where would you most like to go next?

I’d love to see Canada.

Can you drive?



Okay and finally…if you had £1000 to spend in a day, what would you do?

I would instantly book my tattoo!
