Reviews and references

John Gannon, Marketing Manager, GeoDesign, Inc.

Nikki is very creative; possesses strong graphic design, communication, and organizational skills; and—during her time at GeoDesign—elevated the overall brand of the firm. She is easy to work with and always quick to respond to requests from clients and our own staff. Nikki was also a great ambassador for GeoDesign, enthusiastically participating in our local A/E/C marketing association. I can highly recommend Nikki. You'll enjoy her strong work ethic and passion in all that she does.

Suzanne

Nikki has been a great volunteer to work with. Her ability to think creatively while balancing our vision has been beyond helpful. She has been on-point in sending us reminders about deadlines, new products to consider and has worked very patiently with our sometimes slow process/pace. I really value Nikki for her ability to work with a variety of people, her ability to take our constructive feedback, and her thoughtful approach.

Amanda

I have had the pleasure of working with Nikki on a couple of jobs. She has designed two different types of business card for me, and created my website. She is very creative and knew exactly what I wanted. She's fantastic with feedback and makes any adjustments necessary to your specifications. She's prompt and offers a terrific turn around time. I receive regular compliments on both, my cards and website.

20th mailer

GeoDesign 20th Anniversary Client Mailer

I created this folded mailer for GeoDesign's 20th Anniversary to mail out to clients. It was a great way to show our clients the history of the company in a small mailer.

Candy box

20th Anniversary Candy Tin & Box

They wanted to have something to give to clients for the 20th anniversary, since they work in soils, came up with rock candy. I created the box and tin. Everyone loved it.

2016 crest final

2016 Oktoberfest Company Logo

Every year GeoDesign puts on an Oktoberfest as client appreciation, every year I come up with the logo. This was last years, and the best so far. A lot of compliments were given for the different style than the traditional.

What I read

I like to read biographies, for example, The Magnolia Story. I got hooked on the show and had to read the book and Chip Gaines really is a goof.

Side projects

Create logos for 4 softball teams, I had fun creating a 100 year Cubs logo for a contest. Create custom cigar wrappers for the coaches at Oregon State.

Ideal team

I have worked on my own, as well as in a big group, and have found I am more productive on my own, but welcome insight from others on projects. I like open lines of communication and always welcome constructive feedback.
