About Hamilton


Hamilton G. Kiah III

As Director of Digital Media my focus is visualizing and driving creative execution across all digital media formats.  Based in Santa Barbara, California, I partner with experienced storytellers, strategists, creatives, technologists, programmers, designers and marketers to create the most meaningful and effective sensory solutions.  I help develop concepts and content that increase market share while maximizing brand equity.

Over the past eleven years I have led creative and strategic teams working in physical and digital playgrounds across lifestyle, entertainment, education and technology, and with an overarching philosophy: to make beautifully simple work – work that cuts through the noise and helps businesses tell their stories.  There simply is no replacement for hard work and doing your research.

My belief is my job isn’t my title, it is the responsibilities I have to my clients and my team. I have had the honor of working with and learning from some of the brightest people in the industry. Unlike many directors of digital media, I remain very hands on; I prefer to lead by example and instruction.  With the constant introduction of new technologies and the daily evolution of the business; I can’t imagine a more exciting time to be doing what I do.

When not reclined in front of a computer or scoping behind the camera, I enjoy spending time with my family, as well as beautiful hikes throughout Santa Barbara, reading creative publications, and the relentless pursuit of mastering my digital media skills.
