DIVE RIGHT IN:
DEEP BLUE DEVIL
20,000 LEAGUES ABOVE THE REST
That's right, we said it. Once you board this ship you are in the hands of only the most skilled of sailors. You've heard the maritime tradition, "The captain goes down with the ship". The captain is responsible for not only his own ship, but for the others who have embarked on the journey along side him. As the old saying continues, he will either save them or die trying. Sounds menacing enough, however, that doesn't scare the captain. Sure his ship is safe in the harbor, but is that what his ship was built for?
Our creative genius may sometimes go to great depths in order to find the right conceptual design for your business needs, however, Deep Blue Devil continues to float above the rest. We stretch our sea legs every morning in order to give our sea fairing clients everything we've got and continue to successfully guide the ship in the right direction for each and every client. When the seas get rough, Deep Blue Devil is here to guide you through the storm. After all, it isn't about giving up, or expecting it to change, it's about adjusting the sails, going for the ride of a life time, and coming out more skilled on the other end.
Leyna Haley found her sea legs at the University of North Texas in May of 2005 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Communication Design, specializing in Advertising Design and Graphic Design. For the last 15 years, she has had the opportunity to work with well known musicians, professional athletes, and prominent personalities and non-profits around the globe. Some of these include Josh Hamilton, Amy Grant, Kari Jobe, Shane & Shane, The Mavericks, Toby Mac, Joyce Meyer Ministries, Joel Osteen Ministries, Life Outreach International, and many more. She has experience in the dental/orthodontic marketing industries as well. Her bag of tricks includes Book Layout and Design, including collaborating on children's books with her husband, Product Design, CD and DVD design, Product Shot Photography, Social Media, Web Design, Poster Design, Package Design, Direct Mail, Painting and Illustration, among others. Leyna is most passionate about music, working with musicians on creative promotional pieces, painting, typography, her dogs (and husband of course), and last but not least, the ocean. She was recently sought out and asked to attend the RAW Natural Born Artists Dallas, Texas show for her paintings and also selected to attend the Dallas Artcon, a non-profit community that raises awareness and funds for creative programs and causes that vary from year to year. Leyna currently works professionally as a Senior Graphic Designer and lives on the island of St. Croix in the U.S. Virgin Islands with her husband and four dogs Pixie, Rufus, Guapo, and Osa.
Jason Haley could be the captain of any ship. Raised in San Angelo, Texas. He is a true west Texan. Here at Deep Blue Devil he's our in-house bearded wonder of the seas. He stays on top of all the ins and outs of running the business. We couldn't do it without him! He is quite the character and a jack of all trades as they say. His most recent accomplishment being graduating with his Bachelor's Degree from Tarleton University in Psychology. For the time being Jason is spending his time changing lives on a daily basis as a licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor in St. Croix, USVI. Some of his many other trades include writing children's books, getting inked up at the tattoo parlor when he gets the itch, and fixing anything that breaks...literally...anything. We've yet to throw a challenge at him that he can't win and he generally comes out on the other side a genius on the subject (whatever it may be). Jason's passions include helping others better themselves, making people laugh uncontrollably, working on sculptures, painting, and spending time with his wife Leyna, and dogs, Pixie, Rufus, Guapo, and Osa.

we don't get scurvy."
THE STORY BEHIND
THE DEVIL OF DESIGN
A SALTY TALE OF DREAMING DEEP
The concept of Deep Blue Devil originated with a deep love for the islands, and an equally deep opposing disdain for cubical life. It began with the idea that somehow, someway, someday—hopefully before we retire—the covetous island life would be conceivable.
The ultimate dream: To live the salty life. To contribute to an island community, and to use our passion for creativity to help others—both islander and main lander, both near and far—to realize their dreams through our tools and talents.
A few trials, a few tribulations, a few grey cube farms, an entire house remodel, and a few grey hairs later, the trade winds have changed. This long sought after dream finally felt the wind filling its dusty sails. The dream . . . became the reality. This is exactly where we want to be, and we're ready to make your dreams happen too, one success story at a time.
Using our passion to realize your dreams,
is all we're about.
