Karen Ryan is co-chair for the Portland Chapter.
During her tenure with Anderson Krygier, Karen Ryan has distinguished herself as a thorough, thoughtful designer and manager of complex wayfinding and experiential graphic design programs. She brings an innate sense of space and how people move through an environment to all of her projects. Karen’s sense of adventure, her wisdom and practical insights, not to mention her unswerving attention to detail (all served with grace) have helped to shape the culture and practice at AK.
Some of the projects Karen Ryan has worked on include UNC Cancer Hospital, Chapel Hill, NC; Gerding Theater at the Armory, Portland OR; Memorial Union Renovation and Student Experience Center at Oregon State University and Fairbanks Memorial Hospital, Fairbanks AK as well as masterplans for the University of Puget Sound, Tacoma WA and the Washington DC Library system.
