Senior Art Director

and Designer helping

drive brand growth.


I can Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet with the best of them.

I am Ryan Underwood, a Senior Art Director, Designer, and Leader helping drive brand growth across all mediums. Takenotes is just the moniker I use for freelance, and what not.

Since 2014 I have worked with real estate, and mortgage companies such as CBRE, JLL, and John Buck Company to create unique and interesting branding experiences.

Originally from Chicago, Illinois, I am currently freelancing for various smaller start-ups while on the hunt for my next full-time gig.

My expertise includes branding and Visual Art Direction across both print and digital applications. I have extensive experience with developing brand identities and design languages, then bringing them to life across all mediums necessary.
