Orange Custard is absolutely quick, professional, and most importantly creative in designing a project that fits the personality and needs of the parties involved. I have never been disappointed with Nikki’s ideas for my company and more importantly, her constant communication and turn around time are on point!!
Simple. Clean. Unexpected. Delicious.
Having designed my own site prior to hiring Nikki Terry, I can say with certainty that there is no comparison between what you can do on your own, and what she can do for you. I couldn’t even have imagined the polished, beautiful, and effective site that she created for me. I could have worked weeks—months—and simply wouldn’t have had the skill and design eye that Nikki possesses. She listened closely to what I wanted, genuinely cared about my aesthetic, and didn’t stop until she was sure it was perfect and I was happy. I plan to come back to her to design all future sites for me, and I recommend her unreservedly.
What great fortune I had to find Nikki Terry, who turns web design into a high art of its own. With the eye and imagination of the painter that she is, Nikki created a unique setting for my interests and my work. Her extraordinary appreciation of substance and character allows her to convey tone in magical ways. Utterly responsive, on time, and completely available, Nikki made the experience of working with her its own reward. All that and a web site I love. Words fail but she won’t.
I cannot overstate what a pleasure it was to work with Orange Custard Design. The publishing process can often be a stressful and emotionally turbulent time, but working with Nikki was a consistent joy. I couldn’t ask for a more beautiful site.
I am thrilled with my Orange Custard experience! Not only did Nikki Terry create a slick website that exceeded my every expectation, she delivered an extremely attentive and professional service that made me feel as if my business was her top priority. Highly recommended for anyone interested in a fabulous website!
I had the pleasure of working with Nikki on my first sole-authored book project. I hired her at a critical stage in the publication process, and I would not have been able to cross the finish line without her expertise in branding and marketing. She involved herself in every step of the process, from selecting the cover art design, providing advice on author images, being my advocate when communicating with the press and tying up loose ends that I would never have thought would be as important as they actually were. Nikki encouraged this first-time author to be my authentic self, believe in the work I was doing, and to have faith in the process. She is excellent.
Nikki was absolutely a joy to work with on the PLM website—she went above and beyond, kept knocking at it until she was (and we were) completely satisfied. And it is gorgeous!!
Nikki is a godsend. She was there from the beginning to the end of the design process, patient and professional the whole way through. She has so many great ideas of her own, but she worked with me to come up with something that fit my taste and my work, rather than insisting on her own vision. Do yourself a favor and hire her.
Like most decisions (dinner, lovers) when it came to a website, I had no idea what I wanted, but plenty of ideas about what I didn’t want. Nikki was incredibly patient, and visionary. She worked with me offering up different ideas until we arrived at a site I love.
You know those psychologist tattoo artists? The ones who serve as your shrink and then design a tattoo for you? A tattoo that you didn’t even know you wanted. A tattoo that is a true reflection of who you are at your core? Nikki is like that as a web designer. She talked to me about who I am and what I do until she “got” me and my work. She crafted a site that represents me and work in ways that I could never have expressed alone. She’s an artist, and she understands how to work with other artists and creatives.
I cannot say enough about working with Nikki. She took the time to really understand me and my scholarship, offered inspired design ideas, and created a site for my book that is beyond anything I could have ever imagined. She also an absolute pleasure to work with on a long-term project. She is patient, insightful, and responsive to both ideas and updates. Working with her is by far the best experience I have had with web design.
Nikki did an incredible job translating my objectives into a beautiful website that really captured the vibe I was looking for. From the layout, to the photos, fonts and color scheme — I couldn’t be happier. She was also a lot of fun to work with.
The proof is in the pudding when it comes to Orange Custard Design. The site that Nikki Terry designed for Restorative Justice Initiative is elegant and easy-to-navigate and we receive compliments on it all the time! With her fine arts and marketing background, you get two-for-one with Nikki. She’s not just a designer, but an active, savvy partner in creating a visual concept and marketing strategy for non-profit clients.
Nikki’s smart and thorough and fast and easy to work with. She listens and suggests but doesn’t impose. She’s also cool, so cool you’ll feel cool, too.
