About Ryan

Private art+design schools were financially unattainable for Ryan during his early years. Without quitting on his dream of becoming a designer, he discovered digital illustration through skateboarding and began schooling himself to enhance his skills as a digital illustrator.

Adding to his self-education, Ryan realized the potential of public school resources. He studied graphic design, video and illustration at California State University, San Bernardino as an alternative learning supplement.

Ryan started receiving offers to work on projects in the publication industry, entertainment industry and university institutions. As he broadened his experience and continued to establish an already impressive portfolio, he was also building a reputation as a serious talent.

Over the past eight years, his niche has been doing design work with an illustrative approach for large agencies, in-house art departments and small businesses. While growing his work experience, Ryan has been tutoring students as well for five years. Here, he tutored students on becoming stronger graphic designers, illustrators, video editors, etc. with the Adobe Creative Suite on both Mac and PCs.

Today, Ryan Ashburn is a California-based illustrative designer who is schooled and self-educated in art+design. Ryan continues to experiment with various techniques, primarily in portraiture and video.

To name a few clients, Ryan has worked in the action sports, calendar publishing, art museums and universities.

Ryan had his works published by a few magazines such as Creative Quarterly, Bl!sss Magazine, Semi-Permanent, Concrete Wave, and Thrasher Magazine’s Skateline.

If you know the value of great art and design, then feel free to contact me. Maybe we can work together. I only have room for 7 students each month to ensure that I can do my best tutor lessons for each and every student. So contact me today and we can start the conversation :)

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Adobe InDesign

Whether you're a print, web, or interactive designer, Adobe InDesign has the tools you need to design and publish high quality documents across a full spectrum of both digital and print media. During my studies at California State University San Bernardino, I created print projects like stationery, printed books, brochures, posters and more with Adobe InDesign. While working as a graphic designer for a publishing firm, I taught my fellow colleagues how InDesign allows someone to also publish interactive publications such as digital magazines, iPad apps, interactive PDFs, ebooks and interactive documents. I am qualified to tutor in this subject because throughout my seven years experiences with Adobe InDesign, I have built a strong understanding of the app, as well as implementing the skills to perform with the app.

Graphic Design

I know from studying graphic design at California State University San Bernardino and from tutoring experience that a solid foundation in basic design principles is an absolute must, it will stay with a person for their entire career. A great way to teach good graphic design practices is by showcasing bad ones and discussing why they’re bad. The road from layman to graphic designer is long and hard for both student and tutor, being overly strict or harsh in feedback can scar a person for life. Instead of cold insults, I try wrapping constructive feedback in encouragement, this is why I am qualified to tutor graphic design.
