Course Instructor

Ryan Summers
Creative Director & Educator

Type Lover. Pixel Peeper. Light Bender. Pencil Pusher. Curve Operator. Throw in Root Beer Aficionado, Hockey Fanatic, and International Man of Art & Science, and you’ve got the general idea of Ryan Summers. He’s worked with the likes of Guillermo Del Toro and JJ Abrams, and is currently a Creative Director at School of Motion where he teaches students to design and animate for the wild world of motion design. He’s just as likely to talk your ear off about the Scientific Method as a Design Lifestyle™ as debate why there is no further-refined pop music than the unreleased B-sides of early Oasis. Please approach with caution, high fives, and a firm handshake. He will not bite.
