I’ve worked with Peter for many years. He does top-notch design work, regularly coming out with fresh designs that completely fit the personality of his business clients. He’s talented at everything from developing a unique personality for a business to custom logos to fresh takes on individual icons. He experiments with many different approaches while working with his clients, generally in a fairly intensive process, and then comes out with pure genius. Highly recommended for any business looking to establish, extend, or refine their visual brand.
