"Choosing Zielinski Design was instrumental in the success of our corporate history book, “Riding For The Brand”. For a company that had saved little to nothing over the past 49 years, their creative approach to re-creating our history was remarkable. As a historical document, our book could not have been more engaging and incredible to read. As a sales tool, the book was instrumental in the company's ability to land several major pieces of business. In addition, the book contributed widely to the increased valuation of the company and record sale to XTO Energy."
