Greetings! My name is Ryan Nolan, I'm a Game and UI/UX Designer based out in Bellevue, WA.
Games and gaming have both been a big part of my life. From the earliest memories of watching my father play PC games, to now where I am actively developing and playing games myself.
I graduated from Columbia College Chicago with a bachelors in Game Design / Development, but my strongest skills lie in UI/UX Design.
My favorite piece in a game is the smallest detail that most people will never notice. That can be in the UI, sound, gameplay, dialogue, etc. the refinement and iteration needed to make sure the player understands the game is why I love UX.
I hope that I'm the kind of person you're looking for, and I look forward to talking with you! Below you can see the games, both large and small, I've worked on. Give them a click if you’d like to learn more about the development process behind them!
If you’d like to get a peak into how I think, I have a blog where I talk about games and their design. Generally taking one game and focusing on how I think certain areas could improve to better the overall experience.
