LavaWorks was my first official successful foray into the field of design. I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to build a business plan and lead a team of eager young developers into this field. I did the business planning, marketing and design under this title for a few years. As any startup, I made my share of mistakes. But without having had this experience I think LoweStudio would not have been as successful.

LoweStudio Inc was founded by me, Raphael Lowe, a Honolulu based illustrator and web designer. I presently design and manage a few dozen commercial websites, but my main focus these days is acting as the head developer for Kapiolani Community College and teaching New Media Arts.
I started this blog the day I quit my last job to set out on my own two feet as an independent graphic designer. I had no motivations other than to document my experiences for my own self reflection and gratification from time to time. Does this blog have anything to do with design?...not always, but my daily experiences shape how I design.
