Ryder is currently the Communications Assistant at SAI Digital, a creative web development and inbound marketing startup.
Ryder got his graphic design career started in high school, as Editor-in-Chief of his yearbook. In addition to managing 53 staff members over two semesters, Ryder designed the theme, cover, and was the driving force behind every layout design and story. In the same year, Ryder had the opportunity to intern at the Downtown Development Authority of Calhoun, GA. There, he organized entertainment for a local street festival that drew record crowds, as well as designing an all new wave of advertisements with the aim of increasing downtown tourism. Since graduating high school, Ryder moved onto bigger and better things. His most recent internship was at a full service advertising agency in Rome, Georgia called Advertising Dynamics. Here, he worked with the print magazine called Enjoy! Northwest Georgia and created its social media presence and maintained its existing website.
In Fall 2011, Ryder began his studies at Berry College in the field of Visual Communications. On campus, his main position is working as the Assistant Graphics Editor for the Campus Carrier. His job at this award-winning college newspaper entails many late nights designing advertisements and graphics so that the paper remains relevant in the ever changing world of design. However, he soon rose to the Graphics Editor position, taking on even more responsibility.
During his time at the Campus Carrier, the newspaper went to the Georgia College Press Association and won 8 awards. These awards included 2nd Place in General Advertising excellence and 3rd Place in General Improvement over the 2011 calendar year.
