Meet OPKIX Co-Founder & Chief Design Officer Ryan M. Fuller
Ryan M. Fuller's vision of what a camera company/brand should be can be seen throughout OPKIX. As Co-founder and Chief Design Officer, Ryan focuses on product design, photography, visual imagery, and the brand videos seen throughout the various marketing and social channels. With a passion for video, photography, tech and consumer-facing products, Ryan's background as the CEO of an award-winning Design Agency gave him the tools to bring the OPKIX vision to life. It's always been a dream of his to create a camera, prior to OPKIX Ryan was fulfilling that dream, then he got a call from his friend and colleague Shahin Amirpour with a revolutionary camera idea, at this point Ryan dropped his camera project and went full-time on Shahin's unique idea.
“I have always wanted to make my own camera,” he admits. “That was the ultimate dream for me. I’d thought about it for so long, and spent about two years working towards that dream, it's super difficult to make a consumer camera. I just needed all the stars to align".
That happened in 2016 when friend and colleague Shahin Amirpour approached him with an idea for a game-changing camera. Ryan went to work, designing it and enlisting a team of engineers to bring it to life.
Hence, OPKIX was born.
His vision extends beyond the OPKIX product line. Ryan also personally handled set and offcie design for the 9,000 square foot OPKIX headquarters and studio in Costa Mesa. Now, he’s hard at work on a host of content and future OPKIX innovations. Stay tuned for a whole lot more!
