Alex Hayden - Desolation GraphiX
Alex internalized our vision of a logo, and with his great artistic abilities, turned it into reality. Alex also utilized the logo artwork he created for us to build a complete corporate identity package. What is so important to us, as a non-profit business, is that Alex captured our mission within the logo and that will help get our statement across to anyone that sees it.
