Ben Muldrow of Arnett Muldrow & Associates will present the final results of the company’s intensive branding and design process.

Over the past two weeks, the brand image has been refined, and it is now ready to make its debut!

These meetings were so well attended, and the discussions which took place contributed in a real way to the end product. I’m very happy with the brand identity this community has helped to come up with, and I can’t wait for everyone to see it.”
