Ryan St. James Reed

My passion for art and design started as a child. My mother, an artist herself, introduced me to painting and drawing about the same time that I was beginning to crawl. This led me to choose Industrial Design as my path in higher education. I graduated from the College of Architecture and Urban Studies at Virginia Tech with my degree in ID, and a minor in business. During my time there, friends and I started our own online company which proved to be successful, and brought me into the world of web design and marketing.

After years building the online identities for companies, I decided I needed to refocus my attention on product design. I left my job and moved to San Francisco to pursue my Masters in ID.

I currently reside in San Antonio, TX where I am Lead Designer at French & Michigan.
