This Hawaiian-inspired footwear company makes some rad shoes and slippahs that feel like you're walking in wet sand all day long. I had the pleasure of designing some artwork for their new spring collection of sandals, inspired by a Hawaiian favorite: good ol' fashioned shave ice. The goal was to capture the fun, colorful, and playful feeling of ordering a shave ice in Hawaii.
Ward Village puts out a quarterly lifestyle publication called the Forward Journal. For their most recent edition, I was interviewed about my life on island, my inspiration, and what I have in mind for the future. But they also asked me to create some illustrations for the cover and a few interior pages.
If you're into mid-century modern furniture and live in Hawaii, chances are you've heard of Hawaii Modern. John and his team buy, restore, and resell authentic goods of old. I'm a fan of all things mid-century as you may have guessed, so I was stoked to create a logo that fit their brand and personality.
Built on land that was once the estate of Hawaii's last and most beloved princess, the Sheraton Princess Kaiulani is a garden oasis in the heart of Waikiki. When they wanted to rebrand their pool bar, they came to me to create a fresh look. One that was inspired by the Polynesian Tiki roots that have plenty of history in Waikiki.
It's no secret around here that I love to surf and am inspired by the surf culture. So when Birdwell Beach Britches reached out to get some illustrations done for their size chart, I jumped at the chance. I got to design these guys in different sizes to help prospective customers looking for trunks visualize what size shorts they should purchase.
Drew these kooks for Jamba Juice Hawaii's holiday gift cards. For the smoothie/acai bowl fiends, I mean friends, in your life. It was a blast to create these fun illustrations to celebrate the holiday season with a tropical and also uniquely Hawaiian way. Complete with a party wave and tiny mango shakes.
'Ono is the Hawaiian word for 'delicious' and that is exactly what this quaint gelato espresso bar on Front St. in Lahaina, Maui serves up. Ono Gelato Company is no stranger to serving up delicious treats, but when they wanted to put out a new line of coffee beans and cold brew, they came to me for some branding help.
The Grand Wailea certainly lives up to it's name. Whether you've booked a stay and explored one of the nine, sparkling pools or just driven by the sprawling estate on your way to Big Beach, it's safe to say that it's become a staple since it opened on Maui. So I was so excited to memorialize the last 25 years for them with a series of three vintage-inspired travel posters.
Kahala Mall reached out to me to create three vintage-inspired illustrations for their summer tote promotion. Any visitor to the mall who spent $350 and redeemed their receipts, received one of these limited-edition custom-designed bags.
I created this print for Acme Furniture and Pig & Rooster's collab. in Japan featuring interior design that compared Honolulu lifestyle to the Tokyo aesthetic.
In 2015, Walden Surfboards celebrated fifty years in the business of making performance surfboards. For the occasion, they asked me to create a design package that included a logo laminate that was placed on boards to commemorate the occasion, as well as, digital assets like one at the bottom of this page.
