Hi, my name is Donovan Mochizuki and I am the founder of ‘Lakeside Affiliates’. On this website you will find my personal graphic design portfolio (My design services are currently available for hire), as well as a blog on the main subject of graphic design which provides free graphic design tips, articles & resources on all subjects of design, ranging from, but not limited to; print design, logo design, web design, branding, typography, advertising & more.

I am self-employed as a graphic designer, specialising in the fields of corporate identity (logo) design, web design, print design & branding and Real Estate web sites with the majority of my time spent designing and implementing marketing promotions for small businesses and Realtors such as logos, websites, brochures, letterhead, business cards and more.

My life is design, I love it and I surround myself in it every day.

I am:

1. Passionate (I absolutely love what I do)

2. Enthusiastic (I want to learn)

3. Skeptical (I think critically)

4. Focused (I have the right attitude)

When I’m not looking at a computer screen you will find me on the beach, travelling, or listening to music – maybe even all at once. You can check out some more pictures and stories of myself here or here or here. You can read even more about me by following the links at the bottom of this page.


Lakeside Affilaites was launched in November 2007 as my design business and also as a blog. The blog focuses on all areas of design and creativity, photography, marketing and more. Quite varied I’ll say, however the underlying focus is fun!


Lakeside Affilaites is a growing graphic design company serving unique people like yourself and businesses across the world.

Based in Honolulu, Hawaii.  I strive to give my clients the most superior and cost efficient solutions in this vastly competitive market. I specialise in areas such as logo design, corporate identity design, branding, web design, print design (ie. letterhead, business cards, posters, CD covers, book covers, etc.) and also dwell into many other areas such as photography and art – I will try anything twice.

I believe that quality is the one article of trade which cannot be compromised and this is clearly seen in my work, giving my clients the satisfaction they deserve.


Previous  customers have come from many different industries and backgrounds and working with them has developed my experience in many ways. Why don’t you read some of their testimonials or have a look at my portfolio?
