ered that he was exactly where he belonged. “That’s when I realized this is what I love to do. I remember my dad saying, ‘Alright, you’re graduating. What are you going to do?’ and I said, ‘I think I’m doing it.’� Ryan is the kind of guy who welcomes new challenges—whether it’s designing a glow-in-the-dark poster one day for The Black Belles, or a color-changing shirt the next for Third Man Records. He’s not the kind of person that can do the same thing over and over. Lately, Ryan has been working alongside My Morning Jacket—everything from designing posters to appearing with them onstage in a 1950s bear costume unearthed from his private collection. Yeah, that happened. The band even commissioned Ryan to design something for their “Under the Sea�themed prom at the 40 Watt Club in Athens, Georgia. He made individual cards covered in sea creatures, with a place to insert your prom photo. Ryan shows me a card, but instead of seeing him and his prom date smiling awkwardly, I see members of My Morning Jacket causing a ruckus in vintage, sherbet-colored tuxedos. Ryan Nole has come a long way since his art school days. Whether it’s making shirts for one of the internet’s most celebrated cats, or printing 13,000 shirts for Brooks & Dunn, Ryan remains true to himself in every project he takes on. Even though he’s been featured in major design publications, Ryan doesn’t need others to validate his work. He knows he’s onto something good.
