Nicole of Smack Happy Design took my notes and created a web site for me that has drawn compliments from all those with whom I shared it. It is easy to get around, user friendly and best of all she did not create stress in a non-techie like me. And there were no $$$ surprises. I am happy to recommend her work!

The Team of Smack Happy is fabulous. They listen, communicate and they do the work. I could not be happier with what they have done for me. And they make it look so simple! thanks for the good work.

I’m self-employed and had been wanting assistance with my website maintenance and marketing needs. Then I heard about Smack Happy Design from a trusted colleague. I saw what they did for her and was impressed. So I decided to work with them and I am oh so happy I did!

I think the big selling point was the option to have them on retainer. That felt very good and easy for me. Especially since I was able to choose between 3 levels of service that would work the best for my business and financial needs. This area of my business is definitely not my forte. I love that these trusted experts are always on top of my website and are quick with creative marketing. I feel as if they always have my back. And I feel as I’m just as important as all their other clients. Let me tell you that can mean the world for someone with a small business. Smack Happy Design is very professional, super efficient and quite talented! What more could a solo – entrepreneur ask for?

Do yourself a favor and hire them. I wish I had done it sooner.

I love working with Danielle. She handles my account at Smack Happy.

As a solo-entrepreneur, I have many demands for running my business. Although I like marketing, it definitely is not my specialty and I feel so much relief giving that portion of my work to Smack Happy. In fact, it really does feel like a gift having Danielle spruce up my content and come up with other brilliant ideas that highlight my expertise on my website. Danielle always has my back. She never leaves me hanging with a project or with communication.

As her client, I always feel like I’m a top priority with her workflow. Every task she has completed has come to me in an expected and timely fashion. This speaks volumes for a small business owner. I have hired other web designers and web builders in the past and that definitely was not the case. Danielle is professional, innovative, efficient and a problem solver. I can not recommend her highly enough. Thanks for all you do Danielle!

These days, everyone thinks they can make a website, take a picture, or write a story. But, it takes a team like Smack Happy to bring unique creativity and a strong business sense to your website and, ideally, all of your marketing materials. Nicole understands the business value of design and functionality, and delivers an engaging product. And, Danielle as project manager was invaluable; without her we’d still be sitting around wishing we were done.

Smack happy is a boutique talented graphic design team.  Nicole is creative, thoughtful and professional.  She will take time to work with you in creating the vision you want.  Nicole and her team can help with print, web site, and other forms of communications.  If you’re in the market for an awesome graphic design team, look no further, you’ve found it!

It’s totally cliché, but if I could give this team six stars, I absolutely would! Nicole and Danielle were so kind, attentive to our needs, level-headed, and above all really, REALLY good at their jobs. They were very easy to communicate with and always available for any questions or to provide clarification. I was a one-woman team in assembling the content for our new website, and every time we encountered a delay the Smack Happy team was patient and helpful and provided resources for me to help push the project forward.

Seriously cannot recommend this team enough!! (Not to mention it’s even better supporting a local women-owned business!!)

I work for a pharmaceutical company who hired Smack Happy to redesign one of our product websites, and I could not be more happy with the work they did! Danielle was absolutely amazing throughout the whole process. She and her team were extremely knowledgeable, attentive and patient with us. Smack Happy kept us on track and provided weekly updates and reminders to make sure the project went as smoothly as possible. In the end we got the exact website we wanted. The team at Smack Happy went above and beyond my expectations and I hope I have the chance to work with them again in the future!

I had a very good experience working with you. You and your team were excellent at responding to requests and troubleshooting super-fast, as well as keeping the process going.

I hired SmackHappy because of Nicole Hanusek’s expertise and calm & positive attitude. When I was introduced to her associate, Danielle Iera, I felt like I’d won the lottery. Danielle’s technical and creative abilities are outstanding. I was blown away by these two women! They’re professional, very patient, easy to work with, collaborative, creative, did I say patient? I especially liked how they educated me throughout the project. I could ask dumb questions without feeling dumb. Their suggestions enhanced my website from an esthetic and technical standpoint. What they produced outshined my previous website because it was clearly organized and beautiful to look at. I’m moving into my next chapter, as a business owner, with more confidence because of these two talented women.

Thanks to Danielle for the first time since opening my business I feel proud of my website. Yesterday I got a call from a potential client asking a lot of questions about my interior design services. I directed her to my website and walked through a number of sections with her. My website is so complete and fun to look at she was thrilled with the info. She especially liked being able to see all the process steps and the case studies. Danielle has also been managing my social media and newsletter distribution so I no longer have to stress over it. My name is out there consistently and professionally because of Danielle. Ohh.., did I mention she’s helped me design brochures? I don’t know what I do without her. I can now focus on what I love; interior design, organizing and move management.

Smack Happy made me a gorgeous website! I brought them some idea’s and they really took off with them to create my dream website. They are super easy to work with and very accommodating. They are also very in the know about all the modern design and SEO techniques. I would highly recommend them.

Tony Stucker

Tony S. / Pop-A-Shot

It’s been great working with Nicole and Smack Happy. I initially met her shortly after buying my business. We weren’t able to work together at that time, but I was so impressed with her that I kept her in mind. When it was time to find someone to handle my site maintenance and social media, I returned to Smack Happy. And I have not been disappointed. Nicole and her team have been great. They quickly understood my needs during our initial meeting. We were able to formulate a great game plan that also had the flexibility for future additional work. Their communication has been fantastic—it’s like having their team on-call. I don’t hesitate recommending Nicole and Smack Happy.

Cassidy Moore

Cassidy M. / The Body Gallery

I believe in the work I do, I know I’m great at. What I’m not great at is marketing for myself. I always had this icky feeling in my stomach when it came time to do my marketing tasks and I wasn’t getting the results I wanted for the time I was putting into it.
I’m a believer of you get what you put into it kinda life and my energy around marketing myself was all bad. How could I possibly expect to get positive results when I had such bad attitude?
I decided, instead of investing my time and energy trying to change my attitude about marketing for myself, I would hire out.
ONE GREAT DECISION!
Now Smack Happy does it for me, I have no bad energy around the marketing and I’m getting positive results.
I hired Smack Happy because I can feel how much they love what they do and they care about the results they’re getting for their clients. I trust in them because they have gone above and beyond to make sure I’m getting positive results. Their actions are clear, they care.
I sincerely recommend them.

I’ve worked with Nicole a bunch. She is GREAT. What really sets Nicole apart from others is that she is both a great designer AND technical expert on website building. That is super hard to find.

Sarah C.

Sarah C. / Adventurous

I can’t rave about Nicole enough. A few careers ago, I was fortunate to work with some amazing engineers and designers in managing multi-million dollar web projects. So I understand the challenges of finding a great, smart, empathetic, responsive web developer….who also happens to be a great designer. She is a needle in a haystack. Hire Nicole and look no further. (More soon, when I can rave about our expanded website).

I was referred from a friend and we are over joyed we found Nicole. My uncle is a retired high profile politician and business man here in the valley and can be a bit difficult to work with due to his schedule. She handle him like a champ and got the project completed in no time! Would recommend her in a minute (and will do so now on FB) if you are looking to build a site or improve it. Thanks Nicole

Diane J.

Diane Jablonsky / DJs to Go

Nicole has such a creative mind, can explain everything so intelligently, and gets a site up and running. I needed Nicole to do some things for my wedding DJ site that were probably not that common: a questionnaire for the bride-to-be to fill out about the order of the reception events, as well as all song choices. Nicole had to import a database listing all of my music (over 6,000 songs!), and she made it searchable by artist OR song title. Brides could choose songs they wanted, and the list they selected was then sent directly to me via email. The questionnaire also came to me via email already populated with the bride’s selections. I can’t tell you how easy and helpful this was, and brides raved about it! Nicole is a true professional, and I wish I had just a smidgen of her patience!

I’ve worked with Nicole on and off for about 3 years now. She’s done a lot of website and general design for us, both when I worked at a startup and more recently at a large company. She’s a great designer who works closely with you to get the requirements right. She completes the designs on time and is always willing to make changes to get it perfect. I love working with Nicole and will continue to give her projects in the future as they come up. She’s just fantastic. Thank you, Nicole!

I had a few tweaks for my website, and I asked Nicole at Smack Happy for help. Not only did she take care of the changes quickly and efficiently, but she also noticed a few other small usability issues along the way and handled them as well.
One of the things that’s frustrated me working with other developers is that they don’t really understand the intention of the changes. As a result, they execute on the exact letter of the request, but in a way that doesn’t fit with the rest of the site, or that breaks some other functionality. Nicole is different. She understands your overall goal, almost without even having to spell it out, and then makes sure everything works in a way that’s ideal for your site visitors.

I’d highly recommend Smack Happy to anyone.

Working with Nicole and Smack Happy Design has been fantastic. Talented, responsive, quick and delightful. Highly recommended to anyone with web design needs.

Norma Fogelberg

Norma F / Norma Fogelberg

I have been working with Nicole for several years on many projects and she is fabulous! I appreciate her talents, skills and expertise and also her commitment to our projects, clients and our project team. Nicole delivers and is a pleasure to work with her. She is very direct and upfront about what she can do and what she doesn’t do, and has a group of other talented consultants she recommends if needed.
Give her a call!

Keri Tully

Keri T. / Bear Creek

Nicole was an easy person with whom to work. As a non-technical person, she guided me through each step of the process and in the end, I had a website that I’m able to manage fairly easily. When I do run into issues, she’s quick on responding and correcting the problem for me.

Alexis K.

Alexis K. / Alexis Keenan

Nicole is super responsive and willing to help. She truly does care about making your life easier and goes above and beyond to work with you. Nicole quickly helped to make my website mobile friendly and also designed an amazing logo for my business! She has a creative eye and I think she truly sees who you are and does her best to create a web presence for you that accurately represents your unique voice. I will always recommend Smack Happy Design for those in need of web design services!

Michael S.

Michael S. / Michael Schubert

I hired Nicole and Smack Happy Design because I wanted someone who lives and breathes the tech scene in San Francisco to create a stunning new website for my business that would attract a tech-friendly, professional audience. The experience was fantastic! The team keeps you on track, talks you through the whole process, and is super organized: And, of course, they produce beautiful websites! Nicole really knows how to run her business—a real professional!

Crystal S.

Coach Crystal / Run Right Business Consulting

Wow, just Wow! I’m not creative but that’s ok because the Smack Happy Design Team is! To that point, they created an amazing website for us with very little creative direction from me. I asked for a website that represented luxury and they more than delivered! Shout out to Nicole and Danielle for making the process easy and fun. They are not only creative geniuses but also are detailed oriented and highly responsive. We have been receiving 1 prospect a day from the website on average since it went live. I love, love our new website and I am proud of it. Also, got a nice surprise in the mail after our launch. If you are serious about having a high end website, then look no further.
