Who/what is the Ayecon?

The Ayecon is based on the street-art of Ryan Goodwin, a designer, illustrator, and artist living and working in Salt Lake City, UT. Ryan aims to inspire others to do what inspires them—he calls it “Paying inspiration forward.”

To understand the Ayecon, you need look no further than his code:

  1. Respect is earned, not expected.
  2. We are all connected.
  3. Simplicity is the only way to change the world.

If you’re from Salt Lake City, then you most likely know even if you don’t know the classically minimal street art style of the Ayecon. Working in vinyl stickers, wheat-paste poster prints, and spray paint, he’s been actively creating public artwork since the mid-nineties. This site serves as both his online gallery and his store, as the Ayecon begins to transform into a full-fledged brand based on the same beliefs as it’s founder.
