Photography by Suzanne Schafer
Stevaker (pronounced “Steve-uh-ker”) is the graphic design studio of Steve Hamaker – a design director specializing in brand identity design and development as well as illustration, print and web design, packaging and advertising design.
I grew up in a small Kansas farm town where I often doodled on my math assignments and favored art class over geography. By the time I got to Kansas State University, I knew I wanted to make a career out of my childhood hobby.
Today I’ve got over 20 years under my belt. Brand design, design direction and illustration—all in industries like apparel, branding, advertising, marketing, and the Web. It happens on my own and in collaboration with creative writers, developers, photographers and other designers.
I currently live in Fort Collins, Colorado, with my amazing wife and 2 fearless sons. When I’m not obsessing about design, my focus goes to hanging out with my family, trail running, enjoying a craft beer or 3, and exploring this great planet.
Let's work together.
