Mark produced and amazing amount of different designs, in a short amount of time. He is an unstoppable, unflappable, LOGO MACHINE! Our competition was fierce and the finalists were all extremely good. But Mark was the best. He was very fast in turn-around time, was professional and courteous, and he has excellent design tool skills. But his creativity is off the charts.
We did a normal competition (base level) and after seeing good designs we guaranteed the fee. We had over 100 entries. Like I wrote, VERY competitive.
In summation, Mark is a truly gifted designer and I wish I'd had him in the four other companies I started!
