The word vestige means something left behind; a relic, sign, trace, mark, legacy or reminder. Vestige Communications believes that marketing your business involves the concept of relationship management and making an impression on your public. Communication is not just telling people about your organization's needs, but it involves the willingness to listen. Listening and this full-circle approach is what will help you make an impression and leave a lasting mark. Our logo symbolizes this concept precisely. Just as a glass of water will forever stain a wooden table, we strive to help you create your own mark. Vestige Communications will help your business to make an impression in a meaningful and lasting way.
