Big Island Beauty AcademySpring 2018 – Present
Big Island Beauty Academy is a beauty school in Kona, Hawaii. The client came to Technology Aloha when the academy was still under construction, with the need for a website and marketing materials for the new business, such as business cards and brochures. We designed a custom website for Big Island Beauty Academy which includes information for new and prospective students about their staff and courses. We emphasized cohesive branding across all projects, for a consistent and polished look and feel.
There is a decided lack of beauty schools on the Big Island, and that’s one reason we enjoy working with Big Island Beauty Academy. We love that Monica May, owner of the academy, saw a need for vocational training on the island and went for it. She gave us a colorful logo and we took it from there.
When Jillyn walked into Monimay Salon in Kona, she didn’t expect to leave with a new client. But less than a month later, Monica came into Technology Aloha’s office with her business plan to open a beauty academy on Big Island. At the time, there were no academies at all on Big Island and anyone interested in becoming a beautician had to go off the island for education and training.
In early 2018, while she began building her business, we worked on her website. We also created business cards, a course catalog, student handbooks, a brochure for salon services and a brochure about courses for interested students. All of this material took thorough copy editing and formatting that resulted in essential materials to keep the salon running. By spring, she was ready for business with every marketing and informational tool in place.
Though Big Island Beauty Academy is relatively new, we’re excited to see it grow and to support its expansion by streamlining its services. We maintain the academy’s website and take care of most of its graphic design.
