Yuri Priamo Canales
Yuri joins IOP with over a decade in design. He approaches his work with empathy and an awareness of social context. When he’s not at work, you can find Yuri at used bookstores, anywhere art happens, or where you find music or literature. In fact, he has an extensive collection of books that he’s proud to have moved across the country from Chicago.
Yuri is truly a product of a global upbringing. He was born and spent his early years in Brazil, then his tween years in Chile, before moving to Florida as a teenager. The cultural cacophony and the lively people from his childhood along with absorbing disparate languages and cultures in his youth influenced Yuri toward visual communication.
A Graphic and Interactive Communication graduate of Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota FL, he now lives a stone’s throw from Prospect Park in Brooklyn, where’s he’s discovered another cultural cacophony and more lively people.
