About AB3D Creative Design
AB3D is a creative design company located in Sacramento, California that is driven by creating engaging visual experiences.
We are a design studio that sees the world in a different way. The way graphic design, web design and photography is going to be tomorrow.
We are doing it now.
One avenue we have been dedicating our time and effort to is the ever emerging industry of stereoscopic (s3D) graphic design and publishing. Just as it has been done with Hollywood movies in 3D, there is going to be 3D in every day lives from television broadcasts, music videos and publishing. For the past five years we have been working and developing the knowledge and experience to service clients looking for new media creative design like this.
In addition to working for clients, we work for ourselves because we know that always learning more will enable us to continue to provide fresh ideas to our clients. By working ahead of the curve we stumble onto new areas of creative design that have yet to be utilized to the commercial market. By taking time out of the work day to focus on dreaming and visualization, major breakthroughs occur that are of mutual benefit to us as well as our clients.
While our headquarters is located in Sacramento, CA, we have clients across the nation from Los Angeles to New York. Our clients come from a variety of industries including entertainment, advertising, non-profit, publishing, and social awareness.

Stereo-Man 3D Magazine is a digital 3D publication created to fill the need of the emerging 3D content market without a magazine focused on music, art and design. Focused on 3D photography from the front row of concerts like Incubus and the Red Hot Chili Peppers, s3D graphic design, illustration and typography in 3D. It is the dream and passion of Stereo-Man to provide readers with the coolest 3D content around.
Interactive digital magazine publishing in 3D. We found that current digital magazine services do not work properly with 3D images. After spending too much time looking for someone elses process, we decided to build our own 3D publishing platform. Our focus is on the impending technology upgrade of 3D screens being included with tablets, smartphones, television and computer. As this evolution continues, AB3D will continue to evolve ZINE 3D to be a preferred source for 3D publishing distribution.
Who is AB3D?
Over the last twelve years, Ryan Colditz has been creating graphic design commercially. Including graphic design positions with IKEA and LA Weekly, Colditz was given an early opportunity in his artistic career to work without a template and create innovative, award-winning graphic design that combines mixed media, graphic design and photography .
Stereoscopic (s3D) was a visual medium Colditz grew up subconsciously throughout his childhood. As he matured as an artist and graphic designer, he saw ahead-of-the-curve about the coming of the digital s3D revolution. In 2008, before Avatar meant anything to anyone, Colditz created a large-scale promotional campaign for LA Weekly in 3D. Using anaglyph 3D technology, the 2008 LA Weekly Detour Music Festival was the first music festival to use stereoscopic marketing in both print and online. 100,000 anaglyph flyers with attached 3D glasses and a special edition 3D concert guide were inserted into LA Weekly's across Southern California. The response at the Detour Music Festival of the 3D anaglyph concert poster was so big that the LA Weekly booth was torn apart by fans who ripped down the all the 3D posters that wallpapered the booth once they were out of stock. Ever since then, Colditz has been designing stereoscopic graphic design for the digital s3D content market and working with clients who need stereoscopic photography and graphic design that is unique and edgy.
