Ryan J. Price, BA (Hons), B.Sc (Hons)
Art Director & Founder: The Vandeput Design Co.

Hello! My name is Ryan and I am the art director and founder at The Vandeput Design Company (VDCO), an independent design studio based in rural Wales. We are a small company, and were independently established in 2012, but have a long history in the design industry. From indie record labels & podcasts to startups & national public organisations, we have a number of well-known clients under our belt. We specialise in podcast, album & book cover art, multi-media campaigns (including tailored social media campaigns), branding, digital & print design, stock design and photography resources, photographic restoration, UI design for the Apple ecosystem and more.

We went on to establish Vandeput & Co. (VCO) to manage VDCO alongside our other brands, which include services dedicated to supplying design stock (VSCO), and our newest endeavour as film content creators (VECO). We also have more niche brands that focus on handmade fine art pieces & curios, fine handmade jewellery and much more. Yet we remain a very small startup, very much like a cottage industry, but for the digital age.

Finally, I am a writer, with 2 published novellas and a collection of poetry. I am currently working on my first non-fiction novel as well as a collaboration on my first long-form fiction novel. Nevertheless, I am still available for freelance writing assignments of any type and duration. For freelance work, my writing specialises in health and medicine, psychology, abuse and survival, LGBTQ+ life, health & relationships, equality and diversity, fiction and non-fiction, and even ghost writing assignments are welcomed.

To get in touch, please contact me directly by emailing ryan@vandeput.co or visit contact.vandeput.co for other ways to get in touch. Alternatively, you might wish to try chatting with me more directly via my personal messenger at m.me/rycariad for a faster response.

Thanks so much for reading, and I look forward to connecting with you soon!
