What does Ekawa mean ?
Ekawa (pronounced ee-kaa-waa) is simply "Awake" spelled backwards. When coming up with a name, I wanted something unique and simple.

Graphic Arts are a great way of expressing ideas and concepts through many different forms. I usually get asked, “What is it that you do?” Since there is no one-simple answer to that question, I have a list of things that I do as a Graphic Designer/Production Artist:

           • Create logos
           • Catalog and brochure design
           • Website graphic elements and design
           • CD cover layout/design/artwork
           • DVD cover layout/design/artwork
           • Media package layout/design/artwork
           • Digital photo manipulation
           • Production art for other projects

Another question I get asked is, “When and how did you get into this?” As far back as I can remember , I have always felt the need to create and be creative with what I do. I have studied in the fields of print production, photography, ceramics, drawing, painting, music, recording arts, and most recently computer graphics. Establishing techniques in these many areas has helped me understand the creative process: starting with an idea and moving toward a finished product.

My highest priorities are quality, attention to detail, and professionalism. If you are interesting in my services, feel free to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you.
