Meet Julie

Hello! My name is Julie White and I’m the owner/founder of Ryder Design Studio. Ryder Design Studio has been a labor of love that was created by merging my 2 greatest passions:  beautiful designs and helping people. I’ve always been slightly obsessed with the idea of taking a concept and nurturing it from conception to implementation. Over the years, I found that I was being asked by my friends to help guide their own visions, whether it was planning a party or helping get their own businesses off the ground. I gradually discovered that website design and branding were parts that I loved the most so it only made sense that I made this my primary area of focus.

My approach is simple: get to know your clients, their business, and what their goals are now and in the future. We work together to design and build a solution that is unique for each business and is tailor made to accomplish whatever those goals might be. My true satisfaction comes from the delight that my clients get when they see a finished design. As someone who worked in the corporate marketing world for several Fortune 500 companies for over 10 years, I can tell you firsthand that a “one size fits all” approach may work for a huge company but it’s very different for smaller businesses. I can also tell you that as an owner of a small business, it’s so important to be able to support other small businesses and it makes me feel great knowing that I could play a part it helping them be a success.

In my free time, I love riding horses, playing with our 2 maltipoos (Brody and Finley), and making lists. I also have a rather unhealthy obsession with office supplies, calendars, and Erin Condren Planners, which baffles my husband but he kindly entertains. We are diehard Panthers fans as well as my alma mater, NC State, where I graduated from with a B.A. in Marketing.

Meet The guy behind the name

The name Ryder Design Studio is very near and dear to my heart.  Ryder was my beloved horse that my husband and I bought the week after our wedding.  He brought so much joy in to our lives and had such a big personality.  He passed away in January of 2016 from a brain aneurysm at a very young age.  Naming my business after him seemed like such a wonderful way to honor him.

Don't Be Shy. Get In Touch.

If you are interested in working together, send me a note and Ill get back to you as soon as I can!
