Owning a business is scary. The odds seem to be stacked against you. It's hard to feel confident. To be brave. The secret is this; You will feel fear and bravery in the exact same moment.


I'm here to help you be brave.

Taking our experiences from over 10+ years in working with startups, small businesses, non-profits and large corporations, we help our clients clearly share their story with their audience. How do we do that exactly? Great Question.

A lot of business owners are too close to their product or service, and rightly so. When you love something dearly, you know it better than you know yourself. However, this can be a problem for people who don't know you or your business. You need to explain clearly and simply to your audience why you exist, how you make their lives better, and what you do. And I can help with that. 

Hello, my name is Ryan Magada and I am Brave Little Beast. I've been doing this for a while, you know, creating things. I've gotten pretty good at it. I love the intimate, small, craft, experience of building and creating alongside entrepreneurs and small business owners who want to roll up their sleeves and make something meaningful and beautiful.

I use the term "we" a lot on this site. Not to make it seem like Brave Little Beast is this big agency (because we're most definitely not), but because I know that Brave Little Beast is bigger than me. I partner with some of the most brilliant people I've ever met to build amazing logos, websites, and everything in between.

Would love to grab a cup of coffee and chat.

Ryan is fantastic to work with and brings a great attitude and enthusiasm to his projects. Two thumbs way up for efficiency and quality.

I needed images, a video course, web strategy, and design. Delivery was on time, quality exceeded expectations and helped me move the business way forward ! Communication was clear and I never felt lost in the process. Felt good to be led by a pro.

I can’t say enough good things about Ryan! I literally use him for all my graphic design needs. He took my broken photography website and turned it in to something amazing and easy to update! When I wanted my logo designed differently but didn’t know what I wanted he was able to sort through my lack of decision making skills and provide me with a very awesome one of a kind logo! He’s legit awesome to work with, and goes out of his way to make sure you get what you want!
