In 2015 Ryann Gaspara embarked on a journey to form a locally sourced gifting company which embodied the understated and effortless luxury of strolling through the farmers market, looking for the perfect gift on a beautiful Sunday morning,
That small company grew and shortly after launch, Ryann found herself designing gifts for some notable firms such as PricewaterhouseCoopers, Netflix, Ethoca, AT&T, and the Los Angeles Dodgers. She then moved into custom product development solutions for hospitality and has worked to design and project manage everything from branded snacks on private jets to bespoke scented candles for the most luxurious spaces.
Moving away from her original roots and yet embodying her most favorite parts of the design process, Ryann has chosen to form Gaspara LLC, a company that specializes in the fine art of connection.
Gaspara LLC is more than a design company- we use our intuition, passion for storytelling and extensive experience in vetting product to connect local makers with hospitality projects. We form strategic collaborations, and give artisans a chance to shine by highlighting what makes a community tick, and what would make a project glow.
Ryann Gaspara has a deep love of visual design, accompanied by a fascination with experiential branding & emotional advertising. She has practical training in photography, color/structure theories, and art history, and she has spent much of her career in the luxury retail and services industries.
She begins every project from an all-encompassing approach: What is the look, scent, sound, and - most importantly - the FEEL of your brand? And how are you relaying that to your clients or guests? How will your property make people feel?
Using her practical competence, combined with an immeasurable intuitive ability, Ryann has been able to guide brands into making thoughtful, lasting impressions for guests, employees and clients. Those touches translate into brand loyalty, social sharing and revenue for your business.
