Ruth Peyser Design is a multidisciplinary design company with a commitment to social progress. Ruth focuses on designing for non-profit, educational and arts organizations. Her design is logical and clear, encompassing the needs of each client, whether they need a logo, website, print materials, illustration, animation, video, or exhibit design. Each client's unique identity communicates their message, and for her clients in the non-profit community, her work contributes greatly in helping them meet their fundraising goals.
Ruth is based in New York City, but she gathers her teams from all over the country. She assembles the best talent in every discipline, whether the project requires specific code for a website; specialized printing needs; a particular style of illustration, or a photo or video shoot.
She is most enthusiastic about designing for organizations that contribute to the quality of life in our community. She has designed for large organizations such as the New York Public Library and the National Institutes of Health; for small non-profits such as the Reproductive Health Access Project and the African Journal Partnership Project; and for artists, writers and composers such as Bob Power, Cindy Kleine and Kate Veitch.
She works closely with each client listening to their ideas, visions and goals; then offers her recommendations in both design approach and the technologies available that would best suit the project. This collaborative process results in solutions that meet each clients’ needs and are innovative and visually satisfying.
Ruth has been a designer since well before computers became the tool of the trade. She graduated from Sydney College of the Arts (Australia) in Graphic Design in 1977. In addition to her thoughtful and inventive approach to design, she has a vast knowledge of the latest technologies in web, print and video production. She is also an award winning animator. Her films have been shown on television and in film festivals both here and abroad.
