"Riley designed the logo and collateral for my business, and I could not be more pleased with the results. The designs he came up with perfectly represents the character and ethos of my business. His unique design aesthetic has helped set my branding apart from the rest; I cannot count the number of compliments I have received on my logos. Riley was also extremely professional and pleasant to work with. I'd highly recommend him for any identity, packaging or illustration needs. - Kathy Le Backes
