About

Julie Ray Creative (JRC) was founded in Tucson in 2008 with the vision of bringing together social justice and design. Our values of community impact, collaboration & inclusion, creativity, and connection are the foundation for our process and practice.

Julie started her career working with non-profit organizations in program management, fundraising and communications. While serving as the Development and Communications Director for artworxla, a Los Angeles arts education organization, she worked closely with graphic designers who developed eye-catching materials for the organization. Her interest piqued, she took courses in L.A. and Tucson, where she moved in 2004, and launched her freelance practice.

Thirteen years later, Julie Ray Creative has helped dozens of non-profit organizations in all aspects of design and marketing, from building websites to managing social media campaigns. We are a team of talented professionals in design, website development, public relations, marketing and copywriting. JRC builds long-term relationships with clients, becoming a valued team member that grows and adapts with the organization.

Julie is a member of the Chandler Arts Commission, and past VP of Community Engagement for AIGA Arizona, the professional association for design. While living in Tucson, she served on the Arts Foundation of Southern Arizona Grants and Marketing Committees and the ParkWise Commission.
