Its 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!”

This past Saturday half of the Sae Design crew represented at the 8th biennial Hawaii 5-O Awards Show. 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:
Sharing the Spirit of Aloha collateral
Lucky Break logo
Design Week 2013 brochure
It was a fun night of good design, pupus, drinks, and somewhat regrettable photo booth pictures.

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.
Located 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.
With 808 being within walking distance from our office, we’ve become menu experts (somewhat). Here’s our Sae Design menu favorites:
Kimchi Pork Balls & Maker’s Smash
Kimchi Pork Balls, McKenzie Salad & Main Street Mule
Ni’ihau Lamb Nachos (and I normally do NOT eat Lamb) & Main Street Mule!
Spicy Ranch Panini & their curated selection of fries
Spicy Tuna Sandwich
Lamb Lettuce Wraps & Wailuku Sour
Shitake Beef Melt & Maker’s Smash
So if you’re looking for something new for lunch or dinner or if you just want to take a load off after work, head down to 808 on Main. There’s a good chance you’ll see one of us there!
