MEET RAVYN

I find ultimate joy in connecting with others!

There's a lot to be said for keeping it simple, so here's what you need to know ... 

My heart lives outside of my body, in the shape of my two daughters and my husband. Most of me is made of an empathetic soul, and the rest appreciates dad jokes and online shopping. I'm a fan of authenticity (like, if you ask how life with two kids is going, I'll tell you my house is a mess, my boobs hurt, I'm exhausted, and I didn't know I could love two humans this much). 

When I'm not working, you'll usually find me: tending to my house plants, hiking around Oregon, drinking red wine on the couch, and watching TV with my husband (and yes, I usually fall asleep by 9:20 pm, sorry babe!). I'd like to think I'm the right balance of "I have it all together!" and "My Google history is really embarrassing." ... 

This work I do fulfills a need to connect with others. I tell stories through words, design, images, and paper. 

I'm married to my better half, Jim. There's still a lot of laughter after 11 years together. We're originally from the midwest, but the Pacific Northwest stole our hearts, and we've been happy to call it our home for the past 5 years. We are currently exhausted by our greatest adventure - our daughter, Alba. She's a wonderful little human who brings us immense amounts of joy. Balancing life & work has taught me to be flexible and resilient - I'm grateful for my family and a career that allows me to celebrate this life.

Hi! I'm Ravyn ... it's so lovely to meet you. Since 2009, I've been the owner and lead designer of 315 Design. After graduating with a degree in graphic arts & marketing, I was excited to create a business of my own - to really challenge myself in chasing my passions. My studio is nestled right in the heart of Portland, Oregon, where I find so much of my inspiration.  My design aesthetic is clean and modern, but I'm a sucker for classic elements that will remain timeless forever. Ultimately, I aim to tell a story with every brand I work with.
