RAS Communications

RAS Communications is located in Chicago, but we serve clients across the country, and around the globe. We operate out of a home design studio, rather than a business office or retail location, which ultimately saves our clients money by helping us minimize our expenses. Having done business this way for more than 20 years, we have become experts in “virtually” serving our clients.


. . . and this RAS Guy

The man behind RAS is Russell A. Schultz. Perhaps it was his mother who planted the idea of being an “artist” in his mind by complimenting him on his coloring book expertise, or his elementary school teachers who first identified his knack for communication in the classroom (when he should have been listening or studying or doing anything other than talking), somewhere along the line he realized he had a passion for art and sharing ideas and decide to see what he could do to make a living at it.

Shortly after graduating from Loyola University Chicago with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Fine Art with a concentration in Visual Communication and a Minor in Communications, Russell launched RAS Communications, and has never looked back. Some clients he served were budding entrepreneurs such as himself, others were non-profit organizations who shared his desire to help others and make the world a better place, and some were the large businesses he knew his skills could serve with the highest degree of professionalism and accountability, as if he were a full-time member of their own organization.

Over the years his skills and network of graphic arts and communication professionals continued to broaden, as did his knowledge (earning a Master of Science Degree in Communications from Northwestern University), aiding him daily in his pursuit of his life’s goal to “increase mutual understanding in the world by helping others communicate more effectively and efficiently through the presentation of ideas and information in a clear, concise, consistent, constant, and visually-engaging manner.”
