"We had a fantastic experience re-working our brand image with ‘Designed by LA’.  After a few meetings to explain our company, we were blown away with the first round of initial design ideas. With just a few rounds of revisions, we landed on a new logo and brand image that captures our identity and has allowed us to produce some fantastic marketing material!"
