Ryan Morrison has lead the longest running accredited degree program for game design & development in the nation at Camden County College all while running a small design studio that started as a basement project to publish more than a dozen video games and analog titles that also spawned a monthly mystery box for yo-yo’s, a bi-annual pop culture event that thousands attend and a retail location that started as a board game reseller and has emerged into the regions “nerdy” HQ (AKA The Nerd Mall) that houses board games, video games, action figures and toys, comic books, records, skateboards and so much more in an amazing 6000SF in downtown Woodbury, NJ & a second location of 2000SF in Penns Grove, NJ.
Below are links to my current projects. Please click on the individual images to see what I am up to.
My position with Camden County College helps my students to produce projects from concept to market through our 4 semester program. I have been lucky enough to change and grow the curriculum over the past 18+ years and have been the advisor of the Game Design/Esports Club on campus for more than 12 years. When the students move on from our program they leave with a portfolio including 2 complete digital games, 1 analog game with an expansion and plans for their own game and much more work from their support classes.
At Island Officials we are developing websites and digital and analog games and created a podcasting studio attached to our offices. We have been in the digital space for more than 12 years and has grown and c hanged to match the climate and needs of the industry and local business space.
I am a contractor with Meterowave Communications tasked with overseeing the administrative and operational functions of the business as they prepare to scale up in their operation.
The Nerd Mall, now in two locations is a 6000SF & 2000SF space that buys, sells and trades in action figures, toys, board and video games, comic books, records and so much more.
SJ Geekfest is a twice a year event that celebrates pop culture and collectibles and fun and brings in thousands of spectators, cosplayers, game tournament players and pop culture aficionados.
The Monthly Throw is a subscription based website that delivers a monthly mystery box of yo-yo’s to it’s subscribers.
