Wear Many Hats Episode 61 — Ryan Evans

Hey everyone it’s Rashad and this is Wear Many Hats presented by Dahsar where we talk about your main gig then we talk about your side hustle.

Ryan Evans is a Creative Consultant based out in New Jersey but during the day he works as a Senior Designer at Boyds, a Philadelphia Landmark Department Store. No Macy’s, No Barneys, No Century 21s, No Real Reals. No Sotheby’s. No Sak’s. No Farfetches. No Garmentary. No Net-A-Porter. No SSENSE. Ok I’m done.

Ryan is known for his poster cut outs that are fun sticker ideas collages, you name it. The colors are bright, psychedelic, and every one of them looks like your next acid tab that you’re about to take.

Ryan’s signature design has been able to collaborate with Pedals and Peacocks, Checks Downtown, and Zeit Campus. All of whom I’ve never heard of before but then there’s New Balance and how I met him thru the grapevine of This Corner.

I’m not trying to put Ryan in a corner but now he’s my corner.

Hello Ryan Evans!

How’s it going?

Congrats on creating and designing the 2021 ‘Best of Philly’ Issue for Philadelphia Magazine. You’ve got a hoagie in there, Insane Clown Posse inspired construction guy on the right.

I love that you wrote, Philly Mag today, Play Girl tomorrow, does Playgirl still exist? I know people collab with PlayBoy all the time.

Do you cop loafers all the time at your day time gig?

This Corner

I found your work thru Marissa Le or Saeed Furgenson from storying the This Corner collab. The 32oz Nalgene water bottle design is a lot of fun with a yellow top. You got butterflies, flowers, the sun smiling, a peace sign.

I‘ve yet to check out This Corner.

New Balance

I love the New Balance collab for the science tee although the model has the worst tattoos I have ever seen.

Part of the “Artist Collective” so I’m guessing you call yourself an artist. Do you tell your friends and family you’re an artist?

Music

So I see that you also create music! What kind of music do you like to create?

Explore Philly’s best restaurants, what are some of your favorites? Because some say Philly has the worst restaurants of all time.

Art

What are some of your favorite collages or posters have you done?

I like that your poster art is definitely a sleeker, trippier IG than Subliming by Tessa Forest. Do you get that?

Are we moving away from these quote designs or are we still in it? I know in 2020 everyone needed a pick me up and was storying or posting other people’s work. You couldn’t escape it.

Hats OFF

Hats off to you on all these things that you do, for some Wear Many Hats Dahsar solutions would love to work with you on a capsule collection someday!

Ending

If you were to get a chest tattoo quote in olde english what would it be?

Plug your socials where can people find you?

Till next time this is Wear Many Hats presented by Dahsar and I’m Rashad Peace!
