DESIGN CRED

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.

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.

Nikki Terry made what could have easily been an anxiety-producing experience for a technologically averse individual—me—into an unexpectedly fun and creative process. Not only does she have the eye of an artist (no surprise there) and tons of technical skill, but she is gifted at translating the abstract into the concrete. And did I mention that she’s highly intuitive? And endlessly patient? She took the time to understand who I am and what I do, and as a result I have a website that I love, one that feels like me. I recommend her wholeheartedly, unabashedly, enthusiastically!

I was so happy with the work that Nikki Terry & Orange Custard Design did to revamp and refresh my website. It was especially helpful in making the site “pop” just as my debut novel was published. Nikki is responsive, detail-oriented, and has a great eye. Thanks Nikki!

I had met with several Web Designers and was never quite comfortable trusting them to create a website that would represent who I am as a Designer. Within minutes of meeting Nikki, I knew I wanted to work with her! In addition to being a pleasure to work with, she provided fresh ideas, interpreted my vision, and exceeded my expectations.

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.

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.

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.

Nikki Terry came to me at a time in my life when I needed it most. My site had been designed yet had no life until Nikki stepped in and did a complete overall. Now, not only have my projects expanded, so has the traffic to my website. I know that’s due to the fact that the appeal meets the work. Nikki brought light and guidance to the work I am passionate about creating. Mentioning my website now brings out a sense of joy within me and that is thanks to Orange Custard. She deeply cares about designing a website that reflects you, and this quality that she has that truly matters.

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.

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.

With my debut adult novel soon to come out, I was in desperate need of a new website. I wanted the new site to not only capture my writing, but also my personality, and to have a truly artistic feel, while also appearing clean and being easy to navigate. That was when I reached out to Nikki Terry, owner of Orange Custard Design Studio. I could not be more thrilled with the work she has done. She is a true artist. She listened intently and intuitively. She completely captured not only my work, but also my personality. Nikki is absolutely lovely to work with; insightful; and she has a work ethic second to none. Working with her has been a joy and a gift. I cannot recommend her highly enough!

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!
