About AB3D Creative Design
AB3D is a creative design company driven by creating engaging visual experiences. The A.D.D. generation has an attention span of...did I lose you already...exactly. AB3D is a design studio that sees the world in a different way. The way graphic design is going to be in 5 years. We are doing it now. We see the evolution of graphic design and publishing going into stereoscopic formats. Just as it has been done with movies in 3D, there is going to be 3D in every aspect of our digital interaction. In the near future, tablets and cell phones will include 3D screens allowing for glasses-free 3D graphic design.
3D conversion in the publishing, advertising and entertainment is happening now. Major brands have been creating 3D advertising for large events like the Super Bowl or for 3D movies and results have been very positive. It is a little like when television went from black and white to color. It is huge shift in the way graphic design, photography, art and design will function with the addition of true 3D depth.
In addition to working for clients, we work for ourselves. By working ahead of the curve we stumble onto new areas of 3D and stereoscopic that have yet to be innovated. 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. There is a wide array of sectors within the emerging market of stereoscopic entertainment, we know that passionate work leads to the highest quality results.
CURRENT PROJECTS INCLUDE

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.
Live s3D photography for major label rock 'n roll and hip hop concerts. Major music festival 3D photography for Coachella and Rock the Bells. As the demand for 3D content hits mainstream levels via 3D home entertainment, 3D concert photography begins to chronicle the current evolution of the music scene in 3D like never before.
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 five years, Ryan Colditz has been developing stereoscopic (s3D) content in creative ways that combine mixed media, graphic design and photography . AB3D is focused on providing s3D content for entertainment clients including movies, music and culture brands.
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. 5,000 3D anaglyph posters were distributed at Sunset Junction Music Festival and at the Detour Music Festival. The response at the Detour Music Festival of the 3D promotional campaign 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. Ever since then, Colditz has been developing solutions for the digital s3D content market and working with clients who are looking for stereoscopic photography and graphic design that is unique and edgy.
