    Enjoy.

    Ryan McArthur - a Toronto-based designer and graphic artist, founder of Design Different.

    I specialize in Design, and have been doing so since I was a kid. Starting with crayon on a freshly painted wall, to designing with a mouse and keyboard on a computer screen. My artistic abilities gave me the opportunity to pursue a career which I love.

    He is autor some truly beautiful minimalist prints, using quotes from famous literary figures with simple, clean black and white images. McArthur creates his works by hand, first drawing them with pen and ink, and then digitally rendering the designs.
