“Working with Sae Design is a pleasure, their team are true professionals. Creativity shines through in every step from concept to design to implementation. They are friendly, quick and efficient in responding to the needs and wishes of their clients. I’m confident we made the right decision in working with them on the launch of MiGRANT and will most certainly work with them again on future projects. I consider them an extension of our MiGRANT family and recommend them highly.”

Melanie Wicker

Assistant Manager, Migrant

“Saedene’s specialty in logo design and branding is unmatched in Hawaii – she took the time to listen to our needs as we underwent a major renovation and re-branding process. She wanted to know our long term goals and worked with us to create a logo that best suited our new brand and image.”

Ed Kageyama

General Manager, Ka‘anapali Golf Courses

“Sae Design is a key member of our team. They are often put into a situation to produce high quality material in a very short period of time — and they always deliver. Thank you Saedene and Steve for all you do!”

Mark Simon

Director of Marketing, Four Seasons Resort Maui

“We have been clients of Sae Design since 2000. During this time, Saedene Ota and her team have excelled in providing us with conceptual design solutions, the comprehensive collateral redesign of our Mauna Kea Beach Hotel, and integration of our existing logos, amenities, and presentation materials to create solutions using color, graphics, and creative execution.
Her numerous awards for superior design and the work she has done for our company are a testament to her and her team’s abilities.”

Prince Resorts Hawaii

“Their graphic design work from initial concepts to final executions has always been stellar, on-target, and in-line with our marketing strategy and goals. Hale Makua Health Services is fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with Sae Design on the visual rebranding of the organization from logo conception to execution across all mediums, including photography, print collateral, and website design, creating a more cohesive and powerful brand image.”

Denise Thayer

Executive Assistant & Marketing Manager, Hale Makua Health Services

“I’ve worked with Sae Design for a number of years, for various clients, on many different types of design projects ranging from business cards to large brochures, flash ads to full-scale websites. They consistently deliver high-quality creative work, professionally and on time. They have a strong creative team, a solid network of reliable vendors and suppliers, and an impressive work ethic.”
