"Jeff Dollens is one of the most talented and creative people I have ever met. He provided us with one of the most distinctive and memorable brands in all of sports, and he has helped a small team from Fort Wayne, Indiana gain national recognition through a variety of platforms. Beyond his obvious artistic talents, his work ethic and timeliness are second to none, and he always comes in under budget. I cannot recommend Jeff highly enough for your business."
