The Face of
Branding and Design
It all started with a phone call from the NFL, requesting a fax of Kurt Osaki’s resume. How fortunate that he had just bought a brand-new Panasonic S1225 fax machine, only minutes before! And with that, the career of Kaua‘i-born-and-raised Osaki was on its way. He founded Osaki Design in 1995, which became Osaki Creative Group in 2005, and created the iconic UH logo as well as team logos for the NFL and the NHL, and work for leading national universities. He attributes the success of the business on his team and his philosophy of kaizen, “the endless pursuit of excellence,” doing everything 100 percent.
