Travis Ricks


I'm a designer who's equally comfortable in print and digital mediums. From magazines to iPhone apps I have done it all.

Most recently I was a senior designer at Miles Media, a publishing company that promotes states and cities as travel destinations. While at Miles, I designed various types of print collateral (travel guides, magazines, media kits) as well as digital products including websites, email campaigns and mobile applications.

Before working at Miles, I cut my design teeth in newspapers. In college I worked at Michigan State University's award-winning The State News. While at The State News, I was named student designer of the year for daily papers in a national Society for News Design competition. After graduation, I interned and worked at the South Florida Sun-Sentinel and the Sarasota (FL) Herald-Tribune.

Having worked in both the newspaper and publishing industries, I have the skills to make your company shine. I'm currently accepting freelance work, and would love to talk to you about your project.
