After 7-months of designing and posting content on social media, he caught the creative spark again, which gave him the passion and drive to start designing and innovating, which was a distant memory. 

Ryan began to imagine a brand design agency, that was built on delivering designs that were deeply rooted in brand identity, authenticity, and invention.

 

Ryan knew instinctively that it was time to create an agency after so many inquiries were coming in through Instagram. He took the hint and launched the brand name as The Brand Thinker. An agency, that's all about the brand through critical thinking and collaboration, which pushes the boundaries of design by delivering commercial quality, that's affordable for startups and personal brands at lightning speed.
