I couldn't be happier with the mentorship session I received from Jamie! Before talking to him, I felt lost about the pathways I should take to become the designer I want to be. He clarified many questions I had and was extremely kind to give feedback on my portfolio and encourage me to create a realistic path to launch my business and advance my career as a designer. His advice was extremely beneficial, and I can't thank him enough! :)

It was great chatting with Jamie. It was evident that he prepared for our meeting by browsing my LinkedIn and portfolio beforehand. During our meeting, he was attentive and was able to bring solutions to the table and break them down. Jamie is really easy and fun to talk to and I see myself booking more sessions in the future. Thank you Jamie!

I had an amazing chat with Jamie. Not only did he answer all my questions, but he went above and beyond in guiding me into the immediate next steps for my career abroad. I suggest anyone looking for direction in their career to have a consultation with Jamie and you will not regret it.

It was really nice to have a conversation with Jamie. I'm really glad that he shared some of his early experiences with running his business, it surely opens up new conversations/chains of thoughts for me and my team to have internally. Hearing about Jamie's journey also validated a few things for me personally and gave an assurance that we are moving in the right direction Will definitely bother him with more questions in near future :)

I had a great time chatting with Jamie! I've been having trouble gathering my thoughts and putting all my business ducks in a row. Jamie was super helpful in giving his perspective and speaking from his experience for my specific problems. I have more tools and a plan on how to move forward and it was invaluable.

Jamie is an absolute gem of a person. At the start of our meeting, I had so many questions and didn't exactly know how to tackle the problems I was facing regarding my branding agency. Jamie helped me find answers to all of the questions one by one. He made it sound so easy and seamless that everything immediately sunk in. He was kind enough to go past our allotted 30 minutes time and kept guiding me until he addressed all of the problems. I highly recommend Jamie as he's an extremely knowledgable, experienced, and friendly mentor.

We Give Back to our planet & the environment

Trees. Their leaves remove CO2 from the atmosphere, and they provide habitat to over 80% of the planet’s wildlife. They help to filter the water we drink, and provide key ingredients in a quarter of our medicines. Forests create jobs for over a billion people. 

So Khula Design Studio decided to become a One Tree Planted partner. The idea is simple: when you work with us, we donate to plant 100 trees on your behalf because trees provide oxygen, support life, and help our planet build a more sustainable tomorrow. So far we’ve planted 1000 trees, and with your support, we’re excited to see that number grow!

Thank you for working with Khula Design Studio. It feels good to give back, but we couldn’t do it without your help and support. 

Khula’s founder, Jamie Windell, would like to extend his thanks to clients, suppliers, contractors, and the whole Khula community, friends, and family. Thanks for helping Khula give back!
