Reid and I worked together at Mustangs Unlimited. We shared responsibility for a variety of projects. He is very dedicated to his craft. He put much thought and effort into how a customer would look at a piece of marketing collateral and to what it said about the company. Not only was he creative, he was a pleasure to work with. He holds himself to a higher standard and is diverse enough that he can work alone or as a member of a team working on a large project. I can only hope that I work with a person like him throughout my career. Anyone who puts him to work will be glad they did.

Reid is a talented and knowledgeable designer and was perfect to work with. We worked together on several projects at Mustangs Unlimited and I was very impressed with his enthusiasm, talent and knowledge. He brought in new ideas for the print catalogs and assisted in the redesign of the website and many other projects. I would highly recommend Reid for his work ethic and skills alone.

Mr. Bianchine is an extraordinarily diligent worker. He provides exemplary performance under pressure, and can manage his time efficiently. During my time working with Reid, I learned many things from his experiences, and consider myself privileged to have worked in the same building. Reid has an artists eye, and his talented design work is second to none. Having worked with him for a few years, I can confidently state that Reid could find his place in any professional environment, work well with any number of different personalities, and give his all toward the common goal of the company.

I highly recommend Reid Bianchine as a candidate for employment.  I had the great pleasure of working with Reid at Automobile Atlanta from 2010 – 2012.  He was responsible for many facets of business development.Reid has excellent communication skills, and is an example of aquality coworker.  In addition, he is extremely organized, reliableand extremely knowledgeable in the current marketing and graphicdesign industry. Reid can work well independently and is able tofollow through to the absolute finish of a task. He is flexible andwilling to work on any project that is assigned to him. He was quickto volunteer to assist in other areas of company operations, as well.
