Ryan Huddle

The belief that all great designs starts with an idea

February 24, 2013

We head back to the United States for our Portfolio of the Week, to bring you the work of Ryan Huddle, a Collins College (Phoenix) graduate who’s been around newsrooms for a while now. Ryan, currently working at The Boston Globe,  was kind enough to tell us a bit about his career:

“After graduating from Collins College in Phoenix, I spent seven years as a designer and creative services coordinator for the Hutchinson (Kan.) News. In 2003, I moved to the Brown Publishing Company in Troy, OH where I was in charge of three local newspapers as regional creative director.

A few years later, I was hired as creative director for the Victoria Advocate, a family-owned paper in Texas, where I worked for five years before moving to the Boston Globe in early 2011. Even after almost 15 years in the business, I still live for design and believe that all great designs starts with an idea; ideas that engage readers’ minds and provoke interaction.

I have won awards from SND, SPD and the Addy’s throughout my career. Most recently, the page I designed for the Globe’s Year In Movies package was added to Tim Harrower‘s newspaper designers handbook. In addition, I am currently working on finding an agent to help build up my freelancing illustration career.”

And now it’s time to look at some of Ryan’s works:
