There is no limit to what a person can do or achieve when creativity is combined with grit.

Juan Beras is a self-taught graphic designer and web designer. He discovered his love for design when he started designing MySpace layouts for fun. His talent for the art grew into something tremendous and manifested into a branding powerhouse called The BR Lab. 

The BR Lab is a company that brings the client’s vision of brands or concepts into life. Be it electronically or in print, the company makes sure that they create and develop the image that their clients are looking for.  The BR Lab aims to become a branding partner from the conceptual stages until the launch of the product.

Beras incorporates almost two decades of experience to provide his clients with excellent branding services. Branding creates the identity of a product or company.  It is how a business gets recognition, and it should be creative and impactful enough to be distinguished from the competitors.

Designing comes naturally to Beras and his team. They continue to be innovative and show their ability to adapt to whatever a project may need. Moreover, the company also offers a wide variety of other services such as web design, interactive design, print design, branding, and illustration. 

With over 16 years of experience, Beras has worked with high-profile clients such as Egypt Sherrod (HGTV), Eric Bellinger (Singer-Songwriter to Justin Bieber, Usher, and Selena Gomez), and Tokyo Stylez. Tokyo Stylez is hairstylist to celebrities like Kylie Jenner, Cardi B, and Beyonce.

Business owners of any size, whether small local businesses or large scale companies, TV personalities, beauty brands, and entrepreneurs, are welcome to reach out and sign up for the high-quality services offered by the company. Doesn’t matter who the clients are or what the project is. The company promises to deliver phenomenal results for the product or company needs.

The BR Lab continues to thrive in the design industry not only by providing high-quality services to the clients but by exceeding their expectations. Juan specifically built the firm to provide intuitive design and ideation services for entrepreneurs and companies large and small. He especially wants to reach fellow Latino, Black and Brown entrepreneurs, business owners, and aspiring CEOs, seeing as there is not enough recognition for POC artists in the industry. 

Beras is not only a beacon of creativity, but he is also an advocate of mental health. As someone who suffers from both Bipolar Depression and Schizophrenia, he thinks that mental health should no longer be overlooked, and instead, needs to be appropriately addressed. Designing has become a very effective therapy for him and he is continuously showing the world that people like him can still have a productive life beyond mental illness.

He accepted his mental illness and used it to fuel his passion for design. In effect, The BR Lab became his creative space. He wants others to know that it’s okay if you have a mental illness and still achieve your dreams. He wants to remind others that mental illness will never define who a person is.

Beras is also supportive of initiatives that empower millennials to become more aware of social issues such as the pressing concern on racial discrimination in the U.S. today. He is partnering with Run Your State NYC to help raise intelligent and socially aware voters come November 3, 2020.

The motivated designer is currently in partnership with  content creators from FastFWD to explore the potentials of motion graphic animation and video production. The creative direction he is giving them is paving the way for the construction of a Skype group chat feel that easily transforms into and iPhone FaceTime session. 

Juan Beras’ fire for life and everything that can make a significant impact on present society remain unmatched. He has turned his weakness into something worth emulating.
