About Project 13:
Project 13 is a creative group focused on Brand Evolvement through print and new media design. We seek clients who desire a high level of creativity, see value in the creative process and are as passionate about what they do as we are about what we do.
We bring no formula or prescribed approach to a project: instead, we listen. We work with our clients to establish their needs and then deliver unique solutions to match. Our aim is to leverage the creativity, enthusiasm, experience and pride we take in our work to exceed expectations and continue making happy clients.

Victor Ramirez – Online Marketing Strategist
Before attended Pennsylvania State University for business management, Victor kicked off his career in marketing and promotions by creating his first e-mail newsletter and web site to promote his 13th birthday party. The results of this early initiative rewarded him with the desired result (he got the VHS tapes he so badly wanted) and had him hooked on strategic online promotion.
Fast forward 15 years and Victor is now developing and managing online marketing strategies for clients that range local coffee shops to three-thousand person music venues and everything in between. Clients benefit from local optimization through Yelp, Google, and Bing and some have seen revenue growth of 30% in a single quarter with more advanced services such as search engine optimization, pay per click, and social media.
When Victor isn’t busy helping clients reach their defined markets, he is continually developing himself as a influential member of New York City’s burgeoning tech scene. He is a co-organizer of All Creative New York, a member of YouTube NextLabs and participates in various projects at NYU Poly’s Incubator for startups.

His background as a graphic designer, copywriter, and social media marketer round out a skill set that is well-suited for a job demanding both attention to detail and a clear understanding of the larger picture.
Technical skills aside, Jason’s ability to assess, intuit, and grasp a project¹s voice and character makes him a unique asset to any creative team. He attributes this sixth sense to having spent decades in the music industry and growing up in a large Italian family.
