Celebrating native species through items we use every day
Hi and welcome! My name is Rae and I'm the owner/designer/artist behind Native Hawai‘i Designs. I'm a field biologist by training who also likes to get artsy. I love photography, graphic design, doodling, and merging them all into fun everyday items. Besides being a huge bird nerd, I have an extreme fondness for stationary, video games, and cartoon-style illustration.
The items I have in stock are passion projects that I produce in limited quantities. I also have some designs on Threadless as well. I hope you love them all just as much as I do!
Introducing Manu Huhū! Sometimes I get weird mashup ideas as I'm doodling late at night... here's one of those ideas from my sketchbook. Our native species have been through (and are still going through) a lot... they have lots to be huhū about. This particular illustration style should look familiar to anyone who spent a lot of time playing phone games in the early 2000s. Get your Manu Huhū apparel on Threadless!
