Cyan Lewis Putnam was born October 4, 2012 at 8:19PM weighing 6lbs 7oz! We have already received a ton of questions about his name. I bet all you designers are wondering if we got Cyan from CMYK, and yes we did! When we were initially coming up with names I was throwing out design terms as names, kind of jokingly. But when we came across Cyan, we actually really liked it! Plus it's a combo of Ryan and Carmen.
This is the artwork for the announcement I'm putting together. I was playing around with the same Ryan + Carmen = Cyan idea and used the avatars I created for the RypeArts.com site update and made a new one for Cyan. I'll probably get it letterpresses using Cyan ink of course!

Could've been Rymen. Or Carn. Yeah, Cyan's way better.
!!!!!! YES !!!!!! — So happy for you, Ryan.
@Timothy J. Reynolds Ha! I like Carn because it sounds kind of weird. Maybe for the next one?
Congrats Ryan! He has your lips :)
ps, I have a spare Dribbble invite if he wants one already ;)
Awesome name. I'm going to name my daughter Magenta now.
Congrats on your growing family! My wife and I are expecting in a couple months and we don't have a name yet. Design terms. We'll have to explore that.
and btw sweet hair on the baby!!
congrats and name is fantastic idea too!
Congratulations! Very happy for you!! :-)
Congrats! Love the story behind his name and how made the announcement, so awesome.
