Overall Winner: Ramiro Andradre
Born and raised on the culturally-rich west side of San Antonio, Ramiro Andrade attended Edgewood Fine Arts Academy. While there, Ramiro grew his passion from Visual Arts & Digital Media. In 2011, Ramiro started “StuddMuffin Design,” to further cultivate his love for design by helping families, businesses, and entrepreneurs develop their brand identity. RAW: natural born artists scouted Ramiro in 2012 to showcase his work in large markets such as Houston, Denver, and of course here at home. As a freelance Graphic Designer, Ramiro has worked with entities like the Adelante! U.S. Education Leadershup Fund, BeVisible Latinx, Teatro Audaz San Antonio, the Human Rights Campaign, and Fire Collaborative, among others. Ramiro’s definition of success can be defined by the way his work makes the viewer feel; “If I have conveyed my message in a pleasing or influential manner, I will have done my job as an artist.” More of Ramiro’s work can be found on Instagram @studdmuffindesign.
