Rydo is a dependable Glasgow-based graphic design consultancy with expertise in branding, visual identity and everything in between.
The practice deals with all aspects of visual communication — from company naming and positioning to copywriting — and brand roll-out across traditional and digital media. Working with Rydo is based on a candid, open, collaborative approach that affords equal appreciation to the pragmatic (the method) and the intuitive (the magic).
Originally established in 2009, the studio produces work driven by an enthusiasm for attractive, conceptually rigorous design that communicates clearly. Creative problem solving lies firmly at the heart of an ethos built on an ambition to provide considered, engaging outcomes that can help to build profile and add value.
Director Ryan Thompson believes that meaningful design can act as a catalyst
for progress and likes to contribute to the broader industry where possible. He is a former event organiser for design lecture series LongLunch and is a member of
the International Society of Typographic Designers (ISTD) — serving as an assessor
for European and North American student assessment schemes.
Rydo works for — and with — artists & producers, photographers & film makers, designers & illustrators, crafts people & makers, researchers & educators, record labels & musicians, fitness enthusiasts, writers & dreamers, programmers & engineers, scientists & technologists, visionaries, mavericks and rogues.
