The Start of a New Day

Elizah arrives to work and walks down the hall. She sees Ali lying on the floor with his golden retriever, Darryl, completely in the zone, working on a still-life drawing; and Shari sitting in her office recliner staring at the ceiling. This is the kind of productivity that Elizah had learned to recognize, a kind that primes her team for creative insight.

Creating the Future

by Julian Ryder, Founder + Chief Creative Officer

I am no longer the President of Ryder Communications Group. I no longer have to make payroll every 14 days. I no longer cut my prices to bring in work. I no longer wait 120 days to get paid. I no longer give my expertise away for free. I no longer work with clients I’ve kept for far too long. I no longer get my six-figure salary or my fancy car paid for, or any of the other perks that come with being the owner of a small design firm.
