Derrick Johnson, Managing Partner of Nimlok Grand Rapids, said, "When I was approached by Justin Bruursema of Chervon-NA to create something truly radical, we all just smiled and said "game on". It's extremely rare that a client will give you carte blanche to create something truly spectacular. Then, when I got the call from Vince Battaglia with the news of our BOSS nomination, I knew we had made a great impression by creating a truly unique and innovative show stopper."
