About us

Paula Hamel Daher


Always creative and never happy unless she is toiling in some form of design, her bachelor's degree in business was critical to growing her firm but her foundation studying design on a masters level rounded out all the necessary elements to launch a successful design firm.
Begun in 1995 the firm has grown, weathered economic cycles and succeeded by providing comprehensive design plans, with a clear, focused design approach. We allow no detail to be left behind.
As the firm's principal creative director, Paula's combination of study, work experience and frequent international travel, gives solid foundation and strategy to the firm's many projects.
