For every [design] is created by someone, but God is the [designer] of everything. - Hebrews 3:4

Hello, my name is Ryan Anthony Labita! I am a graphic designer hailing from New York. I was born in Long Island & grew up in the Adirondacks.
On March 15, 2014 I was working on homework for a design class my sophomore year at SUNY Adirondack. I had a classic light bulb moment. I said to myself, “I love graphic design so much why don’t I freelance?” RAL Graphic Designs was born.
For six years, I have had the honor of creating top-quality design work at an economic price for a variety of small businesses and non-profit organizations. My motto is: “I’ll make a mom & pop store look like a Fortune 500 company”.
As a graphic designer, I take pride in creating design work that visually communicates a message or idea while being both creative & professional. I am a hard worker who lives on the principles of commitment, persistence, and professionalism. I will not call a project "complete" until I have given all of my effort into it.
My favorite areas of design include branding, sports design, and typography. Aside from being a designer, I am a proud US Navy Sailor, singer, writer, photographer, and former radio DJ.
When it comes to commitment, persistence, & professionalism, think Ryan Labita of RAL Graphic Designs. God Bless!
