I have worked with both Maria Allgood and Angie Allen when I was an accounts manager for restaurants. Each project that either one of these ladies designed was accepted by the client with few revisions. Their designs cater to the request of the client, without jeopardizing the integrity of the aesthetics that either one envisions, to ensure a beautiful yet functional environment!Barbara D.
