Client Testimonial

I've been working with Clokendagger for about a year and a half now. They did fantastic work with our restaurant's menu and logo. Josh took my elementary school level sketches and turned them into exactly what I was looking for. Gave me so many great options it was hard to choose. Also, very helpful in regards to website and social media. Can't say enough good things. Expectations exceeded!
