About


Maikalani means Sent from Heaven in Hawaiian. I was born and raised on the Big Island of Hawaii and presently enjoy living in Berkeley, California. I have over 15 years experience helping others with design and marketing needs. What I do is Integrated Marketing: combining website design, graphics, social media and voice into one cohesive package.

Over the years I have worked with a variety of companies such as event promotions, finance, retail, non-profits, small businesses, Bay Area start-ups and tech companies. I especially enjoy helping new businesses get started on their way to success by helping them with branding and marketing.
My real life work experience spans from portrait and newspaper photography to print production and B2B and B2C marketing. I have a Bachelors degree in Graphic Design and Photography and a Master's degree in Visual Communication.

For Print & Web Design, I use Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, Muse and Wordpress as well as variety of social media platforms as the tools of my trade.
What can I do for you?
I love to help small business get started. I can help you create your cohesive marketing plan or just build your website. Depending on your business goals, we can start with logos and business cards and then incorporate social media, advertising and a website.

I  also love doing event promotions and can design your event flyers, posters, advertising and event website. I recommend Wordpress websites, so that you may edit your own site, once it's up. 

Contact me with any questions, inquiries or just to say "Aloha".
