Akula Kreative is a boutique graphic and web design studio located in Del Mar, CA serving small businesses across the nation and around the world. Our mission is to:
- Make every element simple, clean, and creative.
- Exceed expectations.
- Never sacrifice quality for quantity.
There’s a reason our clients are repeat customers. It’s not because we’re the cheapest, fastest, or biggest design studio in town. It’s because we have a sincere interest in our clients’ businesses, and that inspires us—and drives us—to provide quality work on time and on budget.
Here at Akula Kreative, we absolutely LOVE what we do, and we cherish each and every client relationship. In fact, we book a limited number of new projects per month just to ensure that each client gets the attention they deserve. (Sure, we could make more money by cramming ‘em in, but that’s not how we roll.)

Akula is pronounced uh • KOOL • uh. It means “shark” in Russian. Why pick such a random word? Hmm…it’s a family thing. And, sharks are awesome. Feel free to ask about it in person!
Meet Andrew and Nikki. While they have a somewhat difficult time being serious in casual settings, they are All Business when it comes to work. Andrew, a Financial Analyst, is a native Ohioan with a degree in Accounting. He dreams in numbers, charts, and lettered cells and loses sleep over impossible deadlines. Nikki, the Founder and Creative Director of Akula Kreative, was born and bred in California. Her background is in marketing and the arts, having studied and worked in New York, Los Angeles, Italy, and San Diego. She dreams in colors, code, and patterns and loses sleep over finding the perfect font.
When they’re not working (read: On Saturday and Sunday mornings), you’ll find them hanging out with their pets, spending time outdoors, eating, cooking, or doing all of the above at once. Their goal in life—ok, maybe just Nikki’s goal in life—is to own and operate a small farm for abandoned animals.
