To say that Nick is a talented designer and photographer, does not do him justice. Nick has a creative talent for design that defines "out of the box" It is not common for designers to be a triple threat, but Nick is incredibly skilled in large format, traditional print, and web. Nick is as reliable and trustworthy as it gets, and understands that a client is also a person, and seeks to build and maintain relationships.

Marcus Durante

Nick is a talented designer and photographer who has the ability to turn projects quickly with a lot of attention to detail. He has experience in photography and large format design and is very creative while also fulfilling a client's signage, branding, and design requests. I would definitely recommend him for your next project.

Renee Rockford

Director of Communication
I hired Nick to do the design and implementation of our startup company's logo, website, business cards, email template/signature, letterheads - everything that identified us. He is a one-man guru which appealed to me. He was responsive, totally up to speed with all that is web, highly design oriented and very capable. He did an amazing amount of work in a very short period of time. I would HIGHLY recommend using him!

Carl Finocchiaro

Nick is one of those rare finds in marketing that is creative and practical. He listens to your needs and he can create a quality on point product on time and on budget. He has also been able to support us in several different platforms and has proven to be very diverse in his services and capabilities. I would highly recommend Nick and he will continue to be our marketing partner for our team.
