About Ryan

Hi! I’m a journalist-turned-web-producer-turned-UX-designer, currently working at Washingtonian magazine in Washington, DC. As the magazine’s sole UX Designer, I wear a lot of hats: I work with the magazine’s editorial and digital teams to create digital products that meet our unique DC readers’ needs, and I work with our advertising and marketing teams to create more user-friendly advertising strategies for our clients and our own products. I also manage Washingtonian’s Instagram and Pinterest accounts–I love building relationships with our users on our fastest-growing social media account, and managing Pinterest gives me the opportunity to practice my graphic design skills.

Outside of Washingtonian’s offices, I can be found trying new DC restaurants (my latest obsession: Curry & Pie), curating Pinterest boards, reading (I can’t put down The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg), and cooking new recipes (then Instagramming them, of course).

Check out my most recent work, and see what I’ve been writing on Medium and Washingtonian. If you’d like to get in touch, use the form below, shoot me a message on Twitter, or email me at ryan@ryanweisser.com. I also won’t protest if you want to peruse my Instagram feed and Pinterest boards 😉
