Hello, my name is Kanela and I’m your personal creative designer. At a young age, drawing sparked my creative curiosities. During my architectural career I’ve discovered how much I love to help people with design. That became the start of Akamai Graphics. Akamai Graphics became the start of new challenges and big hopes. Soon afterwards, I was approached with an opportunity and I became a partner with an awesome Full Service Creative Design Firm in Costa Mesa, CA. I have been fortunate and humbled by the challenges and creative ventures. I carry those invaluable lessons and experience in business and design development into my own business.

I’m inspired by art, music, everything the ocean has to offer, new city destinations and artfully plated food. My design philosophy is to create with purpose so that I help you and your company have something valuable, meaningful and beautiful to grow your brand.

I’m a sushiholic. I prefer flip flops over shoes. The ocean/beach is my happy place. I also love spending free time with my husband and two grown boys!
