Hey there.


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

From brand identities to illustrations, I create honest and visually enriching solutions that benefit others.

Some important things.


I studied at the Corcoran College of Art + Design, where I received my BFA in Graphic Design. I’m currently a designer at Compass in Washington, DC.

In my spare time, I compose music under the moniker Absent Host, write short stories, and try not to kill my plants 🌿
