About Us

Enhanced digital user experience accompanied with intuitive and beautiful designs

Est. 2006

Rysen is an award-winning digital agency specialising in user experience, strategic design and development of websites, e-commerce, apps, social and digital marketing solutions.

Our boutique agency based in Sydney’s Surry Hills is filled with ‘Ryseners’ who live and breathe digital and creativity. Some may say we’re even a little too passionate. Not us though, we wouldn’t have it any other way.

The Team

Ryuji Uematsu

Managing Director

A forward-thinker by nature, Ryuji’s vision is motivated by his experience and ingenuity. Having worked at the forefront of digital design for many years, Ryuji brings with him the determination to generate powerful and innovative solutions.

James King

Strategic Director

Business veteran and marketing communications specialist, James brings to the table expertise and an unyielding drive to challenge the team. With over 20 years of experience across Australia and the UK, James’ insights guide the business strategically.

Mike Appleby

Senior Account Manager

What makes Mike such a valued member of the team? Simple… his commitment and dedication to his clients. As a sports enthusiast, leadership and teamwork is in his blood and makes him ideal for managing projects and rallying the team.

Sophie Morris

Account Manager

No project is too big or too small for our quick-thinking and bubbly account manager. Sophie’s can-do attitude and creative approach to problem solving not only makes her a great candidate for a season of Survivor, but also great at handling any challenge that Rysen faces.

Amanda Tansi

Art Director

Perhaps too busy for her own good, Amanda spends her time spreading her inventive talents wherever she can – whether through cooking, decorating or her vivid designs. Outside of her artistry, Amanda is the team’s unofficial social coordinator.

Jerry Chang

Senior Designer

Most people would find carrying such immense artistic flair exhausting, but Jerry takes it in stride. Putting his calm and collected demeanour to good use, Jerry absorbs the world around him and is a walking library of unrelated facts and trivia.

Ryan Stroh

Senior Front-end Developer

Ryan is renowned for two things around the studio: a fervent taste for anything chicken, and a knack for web development. The difference between his two obsessions is that while he’s handy around the computer, he hates cooking.

Arjun Shankar

Senior Full Stack Developer

No one at Rysen loves computers and hates clutter quite like Arjun. Our mean-stack developer loves coding, clicking, tinkering and anything technical. Like any great developer, when Arjun isn't flying through lines of code, you’ll find him playing Counter-Strike & enjoying choc-chip muffins.

Ashlee King

Designer

Always looking at the world through a creative lens, Ashlee’s gifts include the ability to draw inspiration from almost any situation. With a passion for travel and exploring the unknown, there are no limits to the creative energy she injects into her work.

Nick Lim

Designer

Nick’s definition of design is the freedom of expression. He become a Digital Designer the moment he realised he could get paid for what he loved to do. The only thing Nick pursues with as much passion as his vigour for design is, well, peanut butter – straight from the jar of course.

Mel Tourikis

Accounts

It’s possible that Mel has too much of an interest in numbers, frequently taking time to catch up on the latest ATO publications and MYOB developments. Minding the pun, Mel’s order and dedication make him a vital asset to the business.

The Rysen Difference

We’re passionate about user experience and producing bespoke creative solutions.

The user will always be the most important influence on our project strategy and creative. Delivering seamless experiences, interactions and user interface across multiple channels has never been so important. We aim to add value to not only our clients, but to the entire digital space.

We know digital

What can we say, the digital space excites us. We can't get enough of it. We live and breathe it.

We're agile & flexible

We're a boutique agency and we prefer it that way. It allows us to adapt to the ever evolving digital space.

We're results driven

Optimised user experience and beautiful designs are great. What's even better are exceeding KPIs & delivering real results.

We build relationships

We aim to be seen as an extension of our clients companies. An agency they can rely on at any time.

The Space

The perfect environment for harbouring creativity and collaboration. 

Rysen studio

Customers now expect a consistent experience across all channels. Making sure that a users offline experience is replicated and enhanced online is what we do.
