I am a Native Hawaiian artist and would be happy to design a piece of name artwork for you, but would need you to be more specific. Are you talking about a petroglyph-like style of lettering? A font based on some of the words and lettering found in post-1778 petroglyphs? Fonts used in old Hawaiian newspapers? Letters designed from things like coconut trees and tropical fish? Outline-style letters with "tribal" art contained within the letter?


Also, would this be for a Hawaiian name? So would you need the diacriticals – `okina (a Hawaiian letter representing the glottal stop) and the kahako (a letter with a line over the top indicating extended pronunciation)?


All best,

Hula
