When all the other designers were either copying each other or were placating to my novice design ideas, Adagio broke out of the status quo and delivered a design that captured exactly what I was asking for in my brief. It was obvious that he took the time to read through my brief thoroughly, and really understand what I was hoping to convey with my logo. Adagio was the only designer that submitted an explanation as to why he chose particular design elements in the logo he submitted. Additionally, his critical eye helped me better understand what I was looking for in the end.
It should also be mentioned that Adagio has excellent communication skills and very articulate in conveying his thoughts. He was very responsive to feedback, both in comprehension and assimilation of my requests, as well as a shockingly quick turn-around.
