Bi-coastal post-production, VFX and design studio Ntropic has announced the signing of Ryan Duggan as creative director to their NYC office. Duggan comes to Ntropic from a three-and-a-half year stint at Click3x, where he was a senior art director for many high-profile commercial and broadcast clients including Verizon, HBO, Olay, MasterCard, Nat Geo, Wendy’s, and Movado. Ryan is best known for his work on Wendy’s Tweetathon.
“We love Ryan’s focus and level of craft around design,” says Ntropic managing director Tom Wright. “He consistently creates appropriately elegant and transformative images for his clients and we’re thrilled to have him bring his sensibility to our offering in New York.”
As a Buffalo, NY native where the phrase "Winter is Coming” was originally coined, Duggan spent a much of his youth trapped indoors attempting to draw comic books and wondering why his didn’t look professional. To pursue his childhood love of art, Duggan enrolled in Savannah College of Art and Design where he graduated with a BFA in Motion Design. He has since worked as a designer and animator for well-established studios in the City like the aforementioned Click 3x and Charlex.
“I’ve known Ryan and watched his work grow for a long time and I’m always inspired by his ideas and designs,” adds Ntropic executive producer Kathrin Lausch. “I’m really excited to have him join us and add his passionate approach to creativity to our team.”
At Ntropic, Duggan joins top industry talent including Lausch and New York senior producer Kara Holmstrom. He will work on a variety of accounts with a focus on visual design and animation for beauty, fashion and consumer products brands. Duggan also has a keen interest in ways to combine emerging technologies such as virtual and augmented reality with art and design.
