My name is Jeff Ras. I was born and raised in Rochester, NY. I graduated with my BFA in Industrial Design from Columbus College of Art and Design, and am currently a creative consultant and freelance designer.

I have had the opportunities to work with a wide range of clients, from small start-ups, to well known international corporations such as X-Acto, Elmer’s, Peterbilt Motors, and more.

When I’m not working, I enjoy traveling, reading, coffee, discovering new music, staying active, meeting new people, and learning new things!
