Founded in 2013, Brand & Brush is duo of driven creatives based in Maui, Hawaii.


We're John and Megan

A couple of high school sweethearts who grew up on Maui and share a passion for designing things that bring joy to others.  We ask lots of questions, add a dash of humor to our projects, and believe that doing good is just good business.

We work with people in all stages of business including established brands, non-profits, startups, and entrepreneurs.

It seemed crazy at the time, chasing a dream and moving our young family to River North.  Having grown up on Maui, Chicago felt new and exciting with the brisk cold air of January nipping at our coats as we walked to creative sessions in coffee shops and pitch meetings in massive, gilded buildings.  It was an experience we wouldn't trade for anything in the world.  It was difficult at times, as adventures tend to be, but the experience was worth the journey.  We learned that it was good to attempt things beyond what we thought we could do, and found success along the way.

With over a decade of experience it has taught us that you never know what you're capable of until you get out there and do it. There is no substitute for hard work, and dreams stay dreams until you step out of your comfort zone and do something about it. We've experienced that for ourselves, and we help brands experience that same feeling every day. It's exciting, invigorating even, with the satisfaction of never settling for just good enough.

We earned our chops in Chicago.

Today, we design for some of Maui's most respected brands, and then some.

Ready to chase your dreams?

Take a minute, we’d love to hear about your project.
