Play Hard, Play Safe.

We love when our clients want to get fun promo items! Got these in today for the EMI “Play Hard, Play Safe” campaign – an effort to keep children out of Maui cane roads and ditches. Coming to a youth center near you!

Ono Eats and Tasty Drinks – 808 on Main.

We’ve been working hard lately! But we’ve been playing hard too, and one of our favorite new lunch/pau hana spots is 808 on Main.

We were lucky enough to work together with 808 on their branding (logo, signage, menus, and more) and environmental graphics.

FullSizeRenderLocated in the heart of Wailuku, 808 on Main serves lunch, dinner and dangerously good cocktails. Their sandwiches and paninis are solid, and their pupus list is full of classics with creative twists on them. Combine that with a cool atmosphere, generous portions and reasonable prices, and a super friendly staff and you’ve got the perfect recipe.

Wanderlust and Wine.

I was lucky enough to go on retreat in Southern France led by a graphic designer & yoga teacher I idolize that encompassed all my favorite things: art, yoga, writing, music and WINE. I got to stay in a beautiful castle and met incredible people from around the globe.

Ian Survives Peru.

The ceviche and Pisco Sours were tasty, but the Andes were the highlight for sure. Found a Peruvian mountain guide + donkey escort (muchas gracias, Hector!) and headed into the Cordillera Blanca for a couple weeks of amazing hiking and ice climbing.
