I really liked fakhriSign designs. He was quick to respond. A few times I had trouble understanding his responses, but we got it resolved and he gave several logos for the money. I would work with him again when needed :)
Great Design and easy to work with.

We were ready to return to California from the Czech Republic, the fifth culture I lived in. My wife went back in March 2009 to look for a house. She got quite an education! “Short sale” was a new term for us. We had to re-learn what the American culture is like. President Clinton’s: “…it’s the economy, stupid”, led me to the research that resulted in Five Cultures Later, writing about the American national debt and comparing it to other cultures.
The name RINKEL is a Dutch name and in our weapon we have a bell depicting the "rinkeling" of a bell. Also can you include the letters BR in it, in such a way that the R is backwards attached to the B. Maybe the moving bell is too noisy, but you can make the suggestions about that.
