Sep 19, 2012 - Web Design - 0 Comments - Standard

Dralle’s Deaprtment Store ended up coming back with some pretty specific feedback and more direction.  I am not as in love with how this one turned out, but I think it will be pretty close to what they are looking for.  This is also a good example of the limitations of working with a low-res logo file.
