Hi, I’m Ryan Wilke, a freelance interaction designer from Santa Cruz, California. I’m passionate about creating clean, simple websites that are easy to use — almost too easy. Over the past seven years, I’ve had the pleasure of working with many teams from startups like Qik and Playlist.com, artists like Britney Spears, and large businesses like eBay, Oracle, Symantec, Photobucket, Zazzle, and the NYSE.
