Ryan Gates

Creative Director, Technology

As Creative Director, Ryan always brings a designer’s method to engineering challenges, and a developer’s creativity to design challenges. Since joining Method, Ryan has led a wide range of product definition engagements for consumer experiences and professional tools across web, mobile, television, and wearable platforms in collaboration with partners including Google, DIUx, Microsoft, AT&T, CenturyLink, Whole Foods, SFMOMA, and San Francisco Ballet.

Prior to Method, Ryan spent time in the Los Angeles area as designer/developer for CalArts (California Institute of the Arts) and REDCAT Theater. He also contributed as Associate Creative Director and Art Director for various design firms, marketing agencies, and non-profit social justice organizations, connecting traditional design aspirations with modern technology opportunities.

Now back home in the Bay Area, Ryan says he’s thankful for dense fog during weekday soccer matches, steep ascents during Tilden Park cycling, and winter coats in July while barbecuing with family and friends.
