Customer Reviews

I made most of the design in just five minutes or so, and even though I just requested it be converted to Illustrator files, what I got back was something that looked like it was made completely from scratch. I was shocked at how far Michael went.

That said, he really went the extra mile zoning in on even the tiniest of details - I felt this even ten-fold!✨ Translated from Japanese.
I was impressed by the great price point, especially for a custom design. He helped to adjust all aspects of the design to my liking with plenty of freedom.
