What is Goodarts dot Net?
Goodarts dot Net is the online portfolio for Ryan G. Wilson. Hi, I’m Ryan! I’m a professional designer working in website design, print design, screen printing and animation. I am currently completing coursework toward an M.S. in Psychology - Human Computer Interaction - from Iowa State University. I received my undergraduate degree in Visual Communication from Ohio University's School of Visual Communication and have over ten years of experience working in the field of professional design. My design hobbies include screen printing and doodling. After my graduation in May of 2012, I hope to start teaching courses in Web Design, User Experience and Visual Communication at university level.
What if you could see what your project would look like before it was completed? I’ve refined the way I work so that my clients are part of the design process nearly every step of the way – that way my clients are never in the dark about what their final design will look like. This method doesn’t require any additional time on their part and, on average, takes me less total billable time. For my clients it's a win-win situation.
As for the way I design, I believe in consistency, good design and doing something right the first time. For web design, doing this means writing clean, valid and modern code and understanding that websites today are going to be viewed on multiple devices. A beautiful website that works well on a PC also needs to work effectively on mobile browsers.
I’m always looking for new design projects and new clients. My services include (Samples can be found on the Portfolio page):
- Designing and implementing websites
- Creating eLearning animations for education, litigation and business presentations
- Designing logos
- Laying out marketing materials, business cards, and letterhead
- Creating custom wedding invitations, programs and save-the-dates
- Short-run screen-printing
If you are looking for an effective, creative designer, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Know Your Browser
February 20, 2012
Recently, I’ve decided to take on the crusade of getting users still using Internet Explorer 6 through 8 to upgrade to the most current version, which, at the time of this writing, is IE9. Windows plans to launch Internet Explorer 10 sometime in the near future – the public beta has been out, in one for or another, since April 2011. ...Read More

When I was young, my Grandmother taught me the value of writing letters. "You have to send mail to get mail", she said. Throughout college she would send me letters in pink envelopes written on pink paper thinking that the guys in my dorm would get a kick ...Read More
