We are so pumped to welcome Bryan Stifle to the Hounder team as the Director of Design. Not only can he wield an axe in both hands, he can also design his sox off! 

Floating the rivers

Born in Vegas, raised in SoCal, and currently floating the rivers of southern Missouri, Bryan is a designer with intense dedication to detail. He's been professionally designing user-focused print and digital experiences since 2010, and has worked with a myriad of clients from mom-and-pop shops to global enterprises. Bryan earned his stripes at the mapping giant Esri designing high-profile marketing initiatives and leading the visual design for the company's robust design system. He specializes in branding, system design, UI, motion graphics, and illustration. He is a HUGE J.R.R Tolkien fan. Happily married and with 3 kids, Bryan and his family are stoked to join the Hounder family.
