I had the privilege to work with Athena_art in this project. Besides the basic skills, you may expect from a designer, I was surprised by the flexibility and customer focus.
It was my first time working with 99Designs, but thanks to Athena_art I can recommend it to everyone.

To give us an idea of the overall feeling of your brand, let us know which styles you lean towards
Like idea of building "columns" incorporated into design - CPA firm is "foundation" to the other business services we offer and the columns of a home/building reflect that. Like to have both primary and secondary slogans in text but not necessarily has to be part of logo itself. For example: Integrity, Expertise, Relationships below name and secondary slogan - "solutions for you, your business, your life on inside of folder or back of business card. Also incorporate "Est. 1994" into design kit.
