Ryan Tibbitts

I’m Ryan, a creative with 5 years’ experience solving complex problems through simple design. Here are a couple problems I’ve solved—or at least attempted to solve—in that time:

Reimagining a website for one of the world’s leading ultra-luxury villa rental companies. See the project here.

Devising and directing an interactive, competitive event to catalog the parking areas of cities across the globe. See the project here.

Designing an app to promote album-based music discovery though the sharing of bite-sized album reviews with friends. See the project here.

Day-to-day, I’m a multi-talented designer with a specialty in UI/UX Design and a passion for branding. I have degrees from CU Boulder in Advertising, Digital Design, and Writing, as well as a certificate in UX design from Springboard. 

Personally, I consider myself an explorer and a creator, more interested in growing as a person and innovating in my work than following the well-worn path When everyone else goes one way, I’ll choose instead to go the other and hopefully get a little lost. 

I’m a Colorado native currently living in Denver with a wily Australian Shepherd named Aspen. I like camping, listening to records, and jumping off big rocks into water. 

Some Tibbitts Tidbits:


I've gotten lost in 44 countries on 6 continents.


I hold a patent for detecting distracted driving behavior and correcting it with positive reinforcement.


I once experienced a magnitude 7.8 earthquake while sleeping in the back of a car in New Zealand.

"The very basic core of a man's living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon. For each day to have a new and different sun."
