Motto

it’s easy to get caught up in the daily grind. These principles serve us as the guiding light to excel in the creative process.

  • What’s your story? The challenge of design is to translate complex information and thoughts into a story that helps people find meaning. And this is when change of heart happens.
  • Keep it simple. Each function or feature to be incorporated in the project should contribute to the business values you want to achieve. Users react positively when things are clear, understandable, and simple.
  • Master a way of thinking, not a style of design. Trends come and go, and they should never come at the expense of usability. Good design should be honest, enduring, useful, and enjoyable. Human-centered design never goes out of style.
  • Design with empathy. Connecting, resonating and being one with the users lead to the right design solutions in the service of people.
Head full of information

Design plays an increasing impactful role in a knowledge-based society. It brings the human factor to complex digital technologies and breathes meaning into the terabytes of raw data being collected everyday.

who

Hi there!

Steven has over ten years of experience in the visual communication field. He attended the University of Hawaii in Fine Arts and minored in Commercial Arts. Having the chance to use a Macintosh Classic II when it came out in 1991 has a major influence on Steven's path to becoming a web designer. After working at several award-winning design firms and prominent web agencies in Hawaii, Steven went on to start his web design business in 2005. Being able to work closely with clients helps Steven understand deeply their business objectives in creating unique solutions for every project.

Every client is unique. Steven’s modus operandi is to provide expert guidance when a client needs, and sit back with an open mind when the client has something to say. Steven currently resides in San Jose where the sun shines as much as it does in Hawaii.

Being an evangelist of all things digital, Steven also enjoys simple things in the physical world like a late afternoon biking tour along the lake with his wife and two children. Having traveled to different parts of the world provides Steven his appreciation for cultural diversity and insights into user experience design.
