Lakewood Ranch artist/adventurer wins iPhone Photography Contest

By | In the news, Julio Lucas | No Comments

Where to start with Julio Lucas? He’s a 32-year-old illustrator, web designer, photographer, athlete and Ringling School of Art and Design graduate who won first place in the 2014 iPhone Photography Awards. He’s an adventurer who loves climbing, flying and the outdoors. Julio once worked as a whitewater rafting guide as a teenager and had a near death experience when he ran out of air while on a scuba-diving trip two years ago. 
“There was a moment … within that moment, where you become really calm and focused,” Lucas says. “It’s a really strange feeling.” The best part is these stories are only the beginning.

"By far the best art director I've ever worked with. Julio truly understood the look I was going for and completely nailed it! I would highly recommend him to any company, you simply just won't find any better talent!"

− Larry Roscamp / Apple Inc

"I cannot recommend Julio and his work highly enough. Julio would truly be a valuable and prized asset to any organization. I personally utilize Julio's skills and talents for my own company. I also had the pleasure to work with Julio for quite some time at Clear Channel. I cannot speak highly enough about Julio, both professionally and personally. Julio's creative talents are simply unmatched. His diligence and work ethic are amazing. Julio's attention to detail as well as his ability to think outside of the box to solve our clients issues were truly an asset to our entire cluster. Julio also has unbelievable enthusiasm and excitement in tackling new projects. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Julio Lucas: creative, polished, articulate, bright and adaptive (are just a few of the words, that come to mind). Julio is simply a pleasure to work with and to know."

− Maverick Johnson, Clear Channel Communications

"It was really fun getting to know Julio during the project. Julio was very helpful in answering my questions and made me feel at ease. The design ended up being twice as good as I would've envisioned!"

− Jeff Maxwelll / Camofroge

"I'm wondering why I never contacted Julio sooner! Seriously, Julio was recommended to me and I feel comfortable recommending him to anyone else. He has commendable talent in his respective fields and totally knocked my concept out of the ballpark. Thanks for an amazing experience!"

− Mark Johnston / Coca Cola Company

"What can I say about Julio? Too many things! Five things come to mind right now: positive, very hard working, super talented, knowledgeable and hilarious! These five things combined together create a person that you not only want to work with, but you want to hang out with after spending long hours working on draining projects in the office. His hunger for researching new ideas and design styles will make his creative work even better for years to come. I highly recommend him for any project!"

− Adam Smith, Smith / Barkely & Assoc

"In the 15 years I have been in Marketing, Julio Lucas is the most creative and talented graphic designer/web developer I have encountered. He has produced award winning work for me and he always exceeds expectations. I cannot begin to measure the amount of praise and compliments I have received as a result of his services. If you have a project or job that requires the BEST... he is your man."
