The Psychitecture method radiates the deeper psychologies at play behind our subject’s true driving needs and desires to bring light into art, design, and lifestyle projects.

At Ray Art and Design, we use the Psychitecture method to unearth an art collector’s true passion, merge couples’ vision in crating a dream home, interpret a script to create the vision and design for a film set, attract guests to premiere hotels, and actualize a spa’s purpose of ultimate relaxation. 

Through highly specialized research, we professionally reveal the psychology behind the purpose of each project, infusing authentic rays into meaningful end results.
