Ryan came recommended by the Corcoran College of Art + Design and was approached with the ambitious task of developing a new, modern design profile for the ADBC, with specific focus on website and print media. Ryan managed to create a design profile that emphasizes the characteristics of Danish design – minimalism and simplicity – while maintaining a symbolist link to the US, as the main platform for ADBC business operations. He has showed great interpersonal skills and ability to turn our ideas into reality. I have been very pleased to work with Ryan and would not hesitate to recommend him to any future employer.

During his time at the Corcoran College of Art + Design, Ryan King was seemingly everywhere: he served as a tutor in the Writing Center, as a teaching assistant for introductory art history classes, as a college docent in the museum, and so on. When Ryan gets involved with any sort of project, he puts everything into it. This work ethic is part of his DNA. Since his graduation, I’ve seen him frequently at art and design events around Washington. It’s my firm conviction that Ryan King has a great future in front of him. He’s not going to wait for opportunities; he’s going to make them┬áhappen with direct action.

During the extended time working with Ryan I had the opportunity to supervise him in a multitude of duties and situations. He was indispensable, with excellent attendance, and an ability to work independently, all with a professional attitude and a smile. Ryan embraced all his duties and impressed me with his willingness to work with all other museum staff, college-age peers, guards and docent volunteers as well as being the “public face” to visitors in the museum. In all capacities, Mr. King was very reliable and demonstrated a high work ethic. Some of his best qualities are good communication skills, punctuality, dependability and his pleasant attitude. His maturity is balanced with an inquisitive nature toward the world and a willingness to learn new things.
