Ryan Meloy • est 1986
GRAPHIC DESIGNER / PHOTOGRAPHER
Started as a nickname, “Meloyski” came from the good friends of Ryan’s, which ended up landing a name for himself. One of the things learned in the design industry is that you cant take things too personally and too serious, using his nickname would be the perfect way to brand himself with design, photography, and skills.
West Coast Born, East Coast Grown. Born in California, established 1986, lived 95% of his life in Sunshine yet Rainy state of Florida, and finally being a newly added addition to the downtown Charleston area, Ryan is currently working as a Specialist for a quite successful company known worldwide, you might of heard of them, Apple. Along with that, he’s also staying in touch with his design side, working on freelance design and photography base projects. Ryan comes to the South from somewhere even more south than the South, Fort Lauderdale, FL. Studying Graphic Design at the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale, Ryan had found his calling in life. Getting paid to do something you love is the right path in life, which he quickly got the move on. After graduating, Ryan started working for a local south Florida advertising agency, BFW Advertising, as an Art Director. Having lived in Florida for the past 24 years, an opportunity came Ryan’s way and it was time to say goodbye to Florida. Small town with history, style, culture, and art, Charleston definitely seemed to be quite fitting for himself, and one of the best decisions made.
When he isn’t designing, being creative, or, but sometimes, and, saving the world, you can find Ryan enjoying tasty beers this fine city has to offer, taking apart cars, biking, eating, eating, and just staying active, as he’s typing this out in the third person laying horizontal in bed.
