Hello. I (Ryan Nix) am a creative consultant specialising in eyewear design and manufacturing, photography, trend forecasting, brand strategy, and art & creative direction. I have worked on a variety of in-house, freelance and licensed design projects. 

My background and experience includes:

  • Eyewear design and manufacturing ︎ specialising in creative & innovative design, end-to-end production support, and sustainable manufacturing solutions. 
  • Photography ︎ especially on 35mm/medium format film (I shoot digital, too) in the fashion, lifestyle and fine art spaces.  
  • Trend forecasting ︎ unpacking micro and macro trends to help brands find their next design direction.
  • Brand strategy ︎ most notably helping companies find their “why”.
  • Art and creative direction ︎ often bringing various ideas together to tell meaningful and compelling stories. You can see a comprehensive example of my work here.

This multifaceted creative approach is what happens when a person studies graphic design, falls in love with photography and then accidentally falls in love with eyewear design, too. My varied experiences connect with an unrelenting desire to make stuff that matters. I obsess over brands, ideas, and products driven by purpose and spirit.

I also love conversation—it’s my favourite thing in the world. With that in mind, please send all mail, enquiries and project opportunities to the email and phone number listed on this page.
