03 May Meet The RONIN Team – Ian
Say hello to Ian, one of our talented graphic and web designers. Find out what he loves the most about his role and how he shares some similarities with Ryan Reynolds!
1. How long have you been part of the Ronin Team?
I started at Ronin in the summer of 2022.
2. What’s your background (i.e. What were you doing before you came to Ronin?)
I previously worked as a Senior Graphic & Digital Designer at a multi-disciplined design consultancy in North-West London, leading in the design and art direction on B2B and B2C branding and graphic design projects across print and screen. I specialised in branding and website design, but I regularly handled creative projects in corporate communications, advertising, packaging design, photography, signage and window displays, and a bit of everything in between.
3. What does your day-to-day job involve?
My role at Ronin is very similar to my previous job. Working with the team and clients to develop creative solutions across branding, graphic & media design, and the design and development of bespoke website projects.
4. What’s been your favourite part of the job so far?
Being welcomed into a team of friendly and skilled professionals and working on a diverse range of projects.
5. Which social media platforms could you not live without?
None (as nobody should). But I am most active on Instagram, as I have been a keen photographer since I was young.
6. What are your interests outside of work?
Apart from spending quality time with my family, I enjoy photography, travelling and growing fruit and veg in my garden.
7. Who would play you in a film of your life?
I don’t really think that’s likely to happen, but let’s say… Ryan Reynolds. Same great looks (ahem), charismatic (cough), and quick wit (people laugh at me all the time…!?)
8. If you had to describe yourself in three words, what would they be?
Creative, methodical, and, er… Commander? (According to an online personality test my daughter asked me to do).
9. The Ronin team has hit the pub – what’s your order?
A good Bavarian draught beer or English cider. Cheers!
