Sae Design Group

We Are
local (like your grandmother’s recipe) approachable (like your calabash aunty) casual (like Aloha Friday) interactive (like the Electric Slide) diverse (like a plate lunch) respectful (like bringing a potluck dish to a party) passionate and delightful (like lilikoi shave ice and haupia ice cream) exciting (like mango season)

At Sae Design we believe that every company, big or small, has a unique story to be told. We are inspired by our clients and understand that thoughtful design is curated through honest collaborative relationships.

We understand that there is no such thing as one size fits all. Our process and results are reflective of our ability to be mindful of: strategy for long term sustainability, appeal that suits your voice, and creative systems that are relative and respectful.

We are visual storytellers, it’s in our design.

Take it from our clients

My Marketing materials are only as good as the form, function and design. I use Sae Design to ensure I get the “WOW” factor everytime.
- Lani Medina Weigert
I have been in the tourist business for over 16 years on Maui and have worked with various ad agencies, but there is one that stands out as the best for creativity, customer service and having a one on one experience with your team. That would be Sae Design. They are a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend them.
- Janet Baldwin
Creative. Unique. Innovative. Sae Design continues to produce top quality and effective designs for Maui Lani ranging from new project logos to website creation. Their office atmosphere is relaxed and inviting and their team members are experienced and responsive, consistently delivering creative design solutions with high standards of production that met all our company needs.
- Leiane Paci
Sae led us in a direction that ultimately concluded with a package design of both bottle and label, that won a Silver Award for Packaging by Beverage World Magazine. Hawaiian Springs has since incorporated this distinction into its marketing efforts in both Hawaii, the U.S. mainland and Asia with growing success. She was extremely patient at times when necessary, and was diligent in completing certain tasks along the way that were time sensitive. I would recommend Saedene Ota and her firm to anyone.
- Rick Hadley (1958-2013)
Saedene’s specialty in logo design and branding is unmatched in Hawaii – she took the time to listen to our needs as we underwent a major renovation and re-branding process. She wanted to know our long term goals and worked with us to create a logo that best suited our new brand and image.
- Ed Kageyama
Sae Design is a real partner in our branding. They spend time to get to know our product and immerse themselves in our culture to provide winning design, print and electronic elements that represent our iconic brand at Grand Wailea, a Waldorf Astoria Resort.
