“The name, is of no consequence but rather born of a philosophy. Meaning seaward in Polynesian, the push behind Makai Project is to head to sea by the implements of our own making.” —makaiproject.com


Makai is a local (Jupiter, Florida) handcrafting wood shop that creates surfboards, skateboards, hand planes and other wood goodies. All the designs are carefully thought out and unique.


We created all the branding, starting with the logo, inspired by the waves, font studies for print and web, packaging for products, business cards among other pieces.

Logo Variations



Besides the graphic design for the company, we also collaborate on a regular basis with the art for the boards.

Done by a silk screen process, pencils, airbrush and watercolors, and applied directly on the wood. Each illustration is a unique art piece as the board itself.
