Creative design for the creative industries!

Kanaka Creative is a boutique-sized arts marketing studio based in Trinity Beach, tropical Far North Queensland, Australia. We collaborate closely with our clients while providing a full set of design services for musicians, artists, festivals, venues as well as arts organisations and small business. Our aim is to provide high quality, affordable marketing material including graphic design, website design and video production.
Kanaka Creative was launched  in 2006 by Kain Shepherd after he branched out from his 20 year career in the television industry. During his career Kain developed a wide range of skills starting out with camera and lighting for production companies in Melbourne before moving on in into the edit suite in northern Australia. During his time in the edit suite he honed his design skills in Photoshop for use in his television productions. He has also had roles as Producer and Director of commercials, music videos, documentaries and corporate videos. Recently Kain has also gained experience outside of his own business in project management, event co-ordination and arts administration on major festivals, public arts projects and the development of a new short film festival.
Kanaka’s clients come from all over including the world including New Zealand, USA, UK, PNG, Indonesia, Spain and of course all around Australia. So if you need a music website design, album cover art, logo design, or any graphic design give us a call.
At Kanaka Creative, we understand both the artistic and business imperatives of the creative industry.
