My name is Raymond Bishop and my company is called LuminalArts. I am an experienced veteran of the design community. Along with website design, I have worked for large ad agencies as well as small design boutiques as a Creative Director and Senior Designer/Art Director. I have chosen to put my efforts now into Elance and all the worldwide working relationships it offers. My focus is on delivering HIGH QUALITY DESIGN, whatever type of project I am involved in, intending always to achieve results beyond original expectations.
I have over 20 years experience in Web Design and over 25 years in advertising, print and collateral design and art direction for clients such as Allergan, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices, Carrington Mortgage, Kyocera Sanyo, Hitachi Home Electronics, Tropitone Furniture, Behr Paint, Experian, Mondavi Divining Rod Wine, Lucy Love Clothing and many others.
I have worked on various projects from cell phone launch micro-sites to corporate sites to ecommerce sites and banner ads; mobile app and interface design. I have also worked in the magazine publishing industry as an art director. My talent lies in superior visual concept design, art direction and execution. I am very familiar with wireframe direction and can deliver high quality web concepts from the wireframe source material. I have designed and provided numerous logos and identity/branding designs in the past, including product packaging, product catalogs & brochures, sales kits, identity packages, basically anything online or print under the sun. My main focus recently has been front end web design and print projects. I provide front-end design, UI design and assets, then work with a team of developers to execute the mostly high-end experiential website design. I have a current developer team that operates in this fashion.
I work in tandem with a group of web developers well versed in platforms such as Wordpress, Joomla, Flash and many others. In this process I develop the concept through finished layered Adobe PhotoshopCS5+ files code-ready for web design, then on to our development team; and finished print-ready Adobe InDesign CS files for print.

I prefer to work within the structure of Elance Escrow. A deposit into Elance escrow is required for all projects. Payment must be made to Elance to be held in escrow before work commences. All dates agreed in the contract and project delivery times will be based on the date of payment of funds into Elance escrow. More information and client input would be needed to formulate a price. Some kind of Creative Brief or description of the project would be advisable.Your turnaround time will depend upon the complexity, scope, and terms of the project. More information would be available after contact.100% paid when the job is completed and the client is totally satisfied or payments depending on milestones agreed before project starts.
I accept payments through Elance Billing and Payment System.
I offer 1-2 concepts and 2-3 revisions so we will work until you love your designs!
I use elance PMB for communications, especially to keep records for the complete project discussions and files. I am also available by phone, Skype or email.
