At the age of 19 I began my journey as a freelancer.
My first 2 years of design experience was earned through two young companies, Collagen P.I.N. & Induction Therapies. The opportunity plunged me head-first into a sea of new responsibilities. By creating graphics for these two sister companies, I began my marketing career with the goal of lowering production costs and increasing sales. I achieved my goal through pushing my limits as to what duties I could perform, constantly pushing myself to learn another skill or trade. I strived to create one of a kind, engaging graphics that told an original story, and to shape that story into reality. My time earned me more experience than I believe any classroom could provide. It was sink, or swim.
Below Is some of my key achievements and highlights from the first chapter of my journey in design.
Among my time working with Induction Therapies, I had the opportunity to bring 14 new skincare products to market with a large hand in product development. These products had a 300% sales growth in their first two years.

Welcome to my story.
Hi I'm Justin Ray. Since June 1st, 1994, my mother was determined to capture every moment within a photograph. Looking back as an adult, it’s as if she had a lens peaking over my shoulder in hopes of capturing the effervescent likeness of her child at play. Throughout my childhood and adolescence, I found myself stepping behind the camera, as well as in front of it, to better learn the perspective of both photographer and subject. All the while, my mother scrapbooking each memory with the use of unique themes, beautiful writing, and lavish embellishments to further solidify each moment in time. Pulling from all the creative energy, at the age of 8, I told my father I wanted to become a Graphic Designer. It wasn’t until age 13 that I found myself enamored with learning Adobe software so that I could go on to create creative photo composites and self portraits centered around replicating the glamour within marketing ads. A hobby that later became the driving force in my desire to absorb and apply as much knowledge pertaining to software, photography & design, marketing strategies, skincare pharmaceuticals and cosmetics, so that I may continue to develop a well rounded skill set.

Thank you so much.
