I’ve worked with Monti West Design on a number of graphics projects for Missouri FFA Association and appreciate Lacy’s creativity and design expertise. She’s able to deliver a compelling design that is fresh to each unique vision. She built the Missouri FFA website, as well as my own business website, from the ground up and the results we’re seeing are amazing!
