Hey there 👋🏻


I’m James Edward Bonilla, an art director and designer who operates where intuition and reason mingle.

From visual identity systems to dynamic web experiences, I create honest and aesthetically enriching solutions that generate meaningful impact and delight.

Over a career spanning a decade, I’ve had the fortune of collaborating with enterprises such as Apple, AIA, Compass, NBC, Volkswagen, and many others. Selections of my work are available upon request.

Other important things 👀



A Maryland native and unreformed hardcore punk kid with Salvadoran heritage, I currently reside and work in Oakland, CA as an Art Director at Rapt Studio.

In my off-hours, I compose music as Phantom Heir, read too many books, and write stories without endings.
