I remember the day I graduated from college, I reached out to Christopher David Ryan of Atmostheory. I first learned through him through some flyers he designed for the livest house music function in San Francisco at the time called Remedy. Either way, I was fresh out of college and was job hungry. Young and eager to learn, I inquired for a job without a strong resume, no prior experience and only a few design pieces not even worthy of mentioning.
I still have the email deeply embedded in my inbox somewhere. To bring it back in full circle, I was politely turned down but was astonished to discover that he was a one man team behind the body of work. As a inspiration, I'm glad this man is still producing beautiful work. Talented and very serene with his visuals. A recliner moment indeed. See more of his work here.
