Ryan Brüssow is a South African tech entrepreneur and founded his first business at the age of 16, selling punk rock merchandise at the local flea-market on weekends. Coming from a small town he realised this wasn't appealing to most and definitely not sustainable, and so he decided to move to a big city where he started teaching himself design.
After 10+ years of failing and starting, Ryan is now a multi award-winning UX designer, co-founder and CEO of Teamgeek - a tech / UX lab, and a partner in numerous tech startups.
Ryan has designed and developed numerous services and products in a wide range of industries for companies like Discovery, Urban Brew Studios, Red Bull, Liberty, Praekelt, Peugeot, Discovery Vitality, GetBucks, Nissan, Durex, USN, Jacaranda FM, Accenture, VUMI, Tsogo Sun, and Apple.
His work has been featured in international press such as Smashing Magazine, Web Design Ledger, Abduzeedo, Gizmodo, Awwwards, CSS Design Awards, Elevator Up, The Best Designs, One Page Love, and Digital Tutors.
In 2015 Teamgeek was awarded the Design Agency of the Year Special Kudos Award by CSS Design Awards. In the same year Teamgeek was also featured in Awwwards' 365 Best Websites Around the World and UX Pin' Web Trends for 2015.
For the past two years, Ryan has been building new products and services for Fintech leaders GetBucks, as Strategist and Lead UX Director. During this time, GetBucks listed on the German Stock Exchange, and have become one of the leading Fintech companies in Africa.
