Although Colorwave Imaging is only a few years old, it is built on the creative legacy of the business that I founded and ran for 27 years, Scene 2, a highly successful and respected design studio that continues to operate in San Francisco, California.

I started Scene 2 to provide design and custom fabrication of models, props, scenery and graphics for advertising, television and the design community. I nurtured it from a vague concept into the success story it is today.

Digital design, wide format printing and photography have been important elements in my work from the beginning, and I got involved just as the technology was coming of age. I’ve been producing graphics and printing photos since the earliest days of wide format inkjet printers. I have been a Photoshop and Illustrator professional since their humble beginnings, as well.

More than anything else, the fast paced, varied challenges of my creative industry career have taught me how to learn, improvise and innovate. As part of my own evolution, I’m still looking for new challenges and welcome yours.

Even with the best equipment and technical expertise, the human element is still a key part in art and visual imagery. Aesthetics, judgement, and the things that can’t be measured or mapped, are all critical elements in the creative process.

By choosing Ron Haake and Colorwave Imaging, you can be assured that your work is treated with respect, individuality, and a fanatical attention to detail that you will soon learn to take for granted. If it is worth doing in the first place, it is worth making sure that every aspect compliments the whole and works in concert with the rest.

As the noted writer, artist and philosopher Ebert Hubbard said on the subject, “Art is not a thing, it is a way.”

In the end, it’s all about creating images that matter.
