I’ve been working with Smack Happy Design for almost 4 years. During this time Nicole’s done an outstanding job for us – from web design and hosting, to refining our logo and putting together other graphics and branded material….Nicole gets the job done right for us. Nicole’s also helped us with the graphics and UI for our mobile apps. She’s thoughtful, understands her clients’ individual needs and this gets reflected in the quality of her work. Nicole’s also a good partner to have when sometimes you don’t quite know what you want! She’s forthcoming with ideas and suggestions. Internally, we talk of Nicole as if she’s a part of our team! I’d heartily recommend Nicole and Smack Happy Design.

Nicole has been amazing to work with. She is incredibly responsive and patient while working through many (MANY!) revisions. She has designed two websites, countless flyers and various other projects for my business. Her rates are fair and reasonable as well. I highly recommend Nicole for all of your design needs.
Anu S / Nassau Nursery School
As a parent board volunteer, my reputation was on the line as my son’s nursery school entrusted me with the decision to hire the right designer to do a complete makeover to the website on a limited budget. I couldn’t be happier that I went with Nicole who not only delivered on time and on budget, but also made the entire experience delightful from beginning to end. I keep hearing rave reviews from everyone at school, from trustees to parents, about how the new website is the perfect front door for our school and does a great job reflecting our school’s brand and culture. I am so grateful to have found Nicole and cannot wait to work with her again.
Rachel Plasse / Project Manager
I’ve worked with Nicole on several projects over the last 4 years, and she never fails to impress me both with her quality of work and diligence. Nicole is a rarity in that she is an illustrator, a graphic designer and also an incredible web developer. She has the ability to listen to a vision or semi-developed plan, and bring it to life both creatively and practically (always in a timely turnaround). She can make WordPress do anything we’ve ever sought, and she can develop it in such a way that the end user can take on and own themselves. Finally, Nicole is flexible and dependable, working on her own or in a team and delivering on time and on budget.
Annie S / Annie's Studio Salon
Where do I even start! Nicole has been an angel sent down from heaven! I opened my own business three years ago and I had a hire someone to set up a website for me. Over a month later, the guy had my business name and my name on a website and that was it. I was so upset and didn’t know where to start to make my own website. And that’s when I found Nicole. She took over, asked me a few questions about my business and color scheme and within a few days she had 3 or 4 samples for me to pick out of. And if I could. I would of picked them all! They were all so pretty. I constantly still get told that my website is nice.
On top of great product. Nicole is also very patient. I’m not the most computer savvy 27 year old in the Bay Area. I’ve had to ask her questions about my website and she’s been very helpful on making it easy for me to understand and for me to sign into my website and keep updating information.
Nicole, thank you soo much for making my website beautiful!!!
Beth Rogozinski / Pear Therapeutics
Nicole is a great designer, is super responsive and very professional. I’ve worked with her on logos, web sites and other collateral – both for my own projects as well as for several “shared” clients together now and I and they are exceedingly happy with her work, her value and her creative insights.
I highly recommend Nicole and Smack Happy – She gets it done!
