Julio Ramirez
Director of Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion

A native of the Dominican Republic, Ramirez moved to the U.S. in 2010 to pursue his dream of telling stories and creating emotional connections through art and branded storytelling. He has worked with brands like JBL, Toyota, AKG, Under Armour and Best Buy.

He has also collaborated in co-branded projects for Demi Lovato, Maroon5 and Stephen Curry.

He is currently the Marketing Director for i2Systems, a LED-lighting manufacturer based in Connecticut whose fixtures can be seen at places like the High Line, Comcast Tower, 21st Century Fox headquarters and Google offices.

Outside of the design world, you can find him playing Soccer all over Connecticut or mentoring with DIG USA, a nonprofit that teaches chess and soccer to underprivileged kids in Connecticut.
