I have been working with LK for about 7 years now. I'm not sure if I can write a review strong enough. The artistic talent, vision and follow through are top-notch. LK listens, takes direction, offers amazing advice and turns work around quickly. Best of all, LK understands the clients needs and always delivers a top quality finished product. You cannot find a better designer in Portland!
