  • "My main brief to Bester Designs was for a logo which portrayed my premier home staging business accurately. Elegant and Classy are two words which drive all of my marketing pieces, and Bester Designs came up with a very simple but elegant design. We chose red and black, to portray luxury and to stand out from my competitors' turquoise and white. I'm very happy with the design and with Bester Design's ability to very tastefully portray my brand."

Colin can insert wisdom into any business environment and lead it to a better place. There are few individuals I've met in my professional career who I rate as highly as I do Colin."
