My name is Ryan Cocca, I'm currently the creative director and co-founder of furniture company Nugget in Durham, North Carolina. Before that, I was the founder, co-owner and lead designer for Thrill City, a streetwear brand and clothing store that I ran while attending UNC. I'm a proud graduate of UNC's incredible photojournalism program and a self-taught graphic designer/illustrator. I've been lucky enough to have my work featured in The New York Times, Sports Illustrated, Complex, The Fader and on ESPN (links below). When I'm not designing or making videos, I'm writing about hip-hop for Super Empty. I want to make everything better.
