Social media is an ever-changing outlet. Networking platforms have been going in and out of popularity as quickly as Kylie Jenner’s Lip Kits. Who remembers MySpace? I know I do. I would spend hours updating my MySpace layout, thinking I was cool because I knew which codes to put in to make my solid colored background into one that resembled a disco ball. Now that MySpace has phased out, the public has moved on to the more popular platforms like Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat and Twitter. I am now a senior in college, but I began using social media when I was thirteen. Middle school was all about who your top friends were on MySpace, high school was all about being “FB official” and posting funny posts on your BFF’s Facebook wall, and now in college Snapchat and Instagram are the best ways to show everyone from home how much better college is than high school.

Ryan joined the HMG Creative team in August 2015 after perfecting his pizza making skills at a San Marcos pizza parlor. A recent graduate from Texas State University with a BFA in Communication Design, Ryan has shown off his skills as a visual designer on our growing team. He wanted to become a member of HMG Creative due to the diversity of our projects. In addition to letting his creative mind fly, he likes the small company aspect that HMG provides.
