About Kauai Design
As creative director for Kauaʻi Design, I've collaborated
with hundreds of individuals and organizations over 25+
years, designing logos, brochures, rack cards, letterhead,
business cards, print ads, digital ads, invitations, menus,
posters, reports, programs, packaging, mailers, signage,
vehicle wraps, book covers, booklets, forms, flyers, t-shirts
After years dabbling in the visual arts, I plunged into
digital design when personal computers were just going
mainstream. I launched my first design studio in California's Napa Valley in 1996, and relocated to Kauaʻi in 2001.
The University of Hawaii recruited me to teach Graphic Design courses at my local campus in 2018, which renewed and intensified my appreciation for the power of strategic design to show and tell and influence an audience.
My studies in applied sales psychology (copy writing + strategic design) and small business marketing add value to the collaboration for a lot of my clients.
How I Work
Whether you know exactly what you want, have no idea where to begin, or are somewhere in between, you'll find me ultra responsive and in close communication every step of the way. (See CLIENT REVIEWS)
I abide by the Better Business Bureau code of ethics and am committed to building trust, advertising honestly, telling the truth, being transparent, honoring promises, safe-guarding privacy, and embodying integrity.
I would love to chat with you to determine whether Kauaʻi Design is a fit for your project. If we decide to move forward together, you'll get a written estimate including a projected timeline and scope of services. A signed copy of the proposal and a deposit are requested to start work, with the balance of payment due upon delivery of the final approved artwork.
On some projects, illustrators, photographers, web developers, or other creatives are brought on board to lend their expertise.
I invite you to collaborate with Kauaʻi Design to develop a professional, relevant brand identity, and elegant, effective business communications that tell your story with impact and style. I can help you define your look and your voice. For a free, no-obligation consultation, please reach out! I look forward to starting the conversation.
