Art direction & innovative design.
Creating beautiful functionality.
Design and branding plans that communicate and bridge the gap between marketing, sales, and product development.
Communicative, functional art. As a musician and creative, I strive to strike an emotional chord and to connect with the audience. It excites me to help a brand tell their story. Changing and keeping up with technology, generations, and trends keeps me ever evolving and never is boring. I choose to work with people innovative in their thinking, business practices and products, as well as leaders in design for their industries. I have 27 years of professional experience in high level branding of “cool” counter-culture lifestyle brands, youth brands, action sports, mainstream corporate systems and the entertainment industry.
I like my projects to run as organically as possible. I carefully cast artists, crew, photographers, everyone involved, because I trust THEIR talent. I assess and combine the talents of all involved for a greater whole. It allows me to guide a client’s vision through the creative production process, maximizing creative input and resulting in stunning work, happy artists and clients.
Nena studied Industrial Design at UCLA. She started airbrushing surfboards (Agua, T&C, Rusty) and designing logos at age 14 and never looked back. She is a rare combination of right & left brain; equally skilled at accounting, copy writing, and branding as she is at artwork. She prefers analog over digital in all things, but understands how to create in the 21st century.
