NK Promotions wanted me to do a unique card that would stand out to their philosophy that they can “print on anything”. The poker chip was a fun opportunity to do something a little different. I started out with an illustrated idea for the concept that was later re-interpreted in the actual chips. While the end result wasn’t as fancy as I’d hoped it would be, the solidness and weight of the actual chip material itself really made up for any loss in detail that I originally aimed for.

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.
