    I met Bryan Keeton in 2009 at a Chamber of Commerce function. As with most business card exchanges, mine drew raised eyebrows and a chuckle. “Dude” was all he said. His roofing company was in obvious need of some re-branding. He has become a friend over the years as well as a respected client.

    Client Comments:

    "When I first met Shawn, I had no idea that he would change the way I look at my brand marketing. He redesigned my logo, which was in desperate need of a professional touch. But he didn't stop there... He was so insightful about how customers view my company, that I asked him to do an overhaul. He was honest, prompt, creative and genuinely excited about making me look good to my customers. He's not a guy that just does what you describe, he takes it a step further and blows your socks off."

His experience with ministries and churches combined with his years in the business world are a huge benefit to us.
