the peles.

SDIts always a fun weekend when this Maui gang spends some time in Honolulu! Mahalo to the Pele Awards for a good time!

We are honored to have even brought home some awards! This year we received:

A note from our client:
” A huge congratulations and Mahalo to you, the team at Sae Design for being recognized by the American Advertising Federation – Pele Awards 2016.  Your combined efforts, contributions, and guidance were paramount in helping 808 on Main achieve such early success.  The smartest move Josh, Jim, and myself made when taking on this venture was seeking out your involvement and partnership.  Well done, and thanks again!”

Created in 2002 by AIGA Honolulu, 5-O celebrates 50 winners chosen by three nationally-recognized judges based on craft, concept and aesthetic achievement. This year’s show took place at Honolulu’s Pacific Club and the theme of REVEAL showcased the beautiful design of local designer Noa Emberson of Surfing Magazine.

Sae Design took home 3 awards for:

It was a fun night of good design, pupus, drinks, and somewhat regrettable photo booth pictures.
