It’s that time again for another Small Business Spotlight! I realized I missed posting this in March as my parents for here for a visit, so we may just get two of them for April (yay)! I’m pleased to share with you the graphic designer behind Accent Design. I’ve known Deanna for many years, as we met when she was working for a printing company with whom I did business. Deanna was super helpful from the very beginning as I was making my transition from using Quark to Adobe InDesign. Not only did she help with printing of the cattle magazine I design, but also has helped me with the branding of my photography business. She also helped with my LOVE printable I shared earlier. What began as a great work relationship has turned into a wonderful friendship.
