I hired Rod to create a customized logo for my website and social network pages. Immediately, I found him to be prompt, detail oriented and a joy to work with.

Rod offered several options to choose from based on the information I provided him with regarding the type logo I was looking for. Then, from those choices I was able to give further input before the final designs were created.

I found each design to my satisfaction! Unable to narrow my selection to just one logo, I chose two of Rod's designs and look forward to working with him in the future as I continue to build my brand!
