That which I can tell you about Ryan Weafer’s work–- that his design feels very current and is concerned with iterative surfaces and compositional elements beyond typographic conventions – can be embellished by the esteemed education he is currently wrapping up as an MFA candidate in graphic design at Yale School of Art.
In particular, I am very fond of the fragmentary postcard generator Fragmentr.com, the bright posters for the Yale lecture series, design collateral for exhibitions and thesis work, a quite brilliant check-mate piece of visual communication regarding politics and (though I’ve no idea how this fits) a fanzine of Bulgarian pop folk. All in all, his is a lively portfolio of clean edges and edgy content and a pulse well worth keeping your finger on.
