Aloha mai kākou,
I’ve had the privilege of knowing and working with the SLD team over the last five years or so in my capacity as Director of the Kamehameha Publishing division at Kamehameha Schools and in my role on the Executive Board of the Hawai’i Book Publishers Association. SLD has provided comprehensive freelance graphic design and branding services for a diversity of projects within our organization—from marketing collateral pieces and advertising layouts, to book publications, sideline gift and promotional products, and even some web design work.
I’ve come to know the SLD team in our work together as a group of gifted designers and creative thinkers who have not only been able execute on design and layout needs as requested, but have brought some truly strategic thinking to solutions for some of the more challenging projects we’ve worked together on. And those high quality efforts have resulted in success for the materials created as well as recognition of and a few awards for those efforts from our peers in the local publishing community.
More importantly, the SLD team is a true pleasure to work with. They are a conscientious group, giving great attention to detail while not losing sight of the larger context that they are working within on a given project. Stacey and her colleagues have a warm, genuine and flexible nature that quickly puts people at ease and makes for productive and collaborative working relationships. SLD is a firm that those of us in the Hawai’i publishing community think of as a potentially valuable partner when considering who we may want to work with on important projects. I highly recommend them for your graphic design and branding needs.
