Angel-Rose Coen

Angel-Rose Coen / Divine author, channel, and healer

I found Nicole in a moment of despair. Well, that’s not true. It was in a moment of hard searching, the internal kind that comes with wondering about my own value in life.

I needed a new website, something that would show who I am, how I can help others, and that would do some of the speaking for me. As a Divine channel and healer, I can do lots of cool stuff. What I couldn’t do was design my own website. I wasn’t sure if I could hire someone who would be within my budget. And I almost didn’t recognize when the gift was put in my path. Luckily, I woke up, opened a door to inner respect, and took a chance.

And in entered Nicole.

Nicole Hanusek is the most professional person I’ve met in a very long time. She is capable, responsible, respectful, and artistic. She responded to each of my questions ethically and quickly, and when I needed more help, she gave it. Her quick turnaround time amazed me. She let me know how to work parts of the website myself so I could keep it running, but most of all, she made this process quick and easy. Just how I like it. 😉

I wrote an initial post about my decision to hire Nicole. Now that her work is complete, I can say it was the best business decision I’ve ever made. I’d recommend her to anyone ready to take a leap into a new, creative world — no faith needed. She will exceed your expectations or tell you why something can’t be done.

Sort of how the Universe works too.

I thank God for putting Nicole in my path, and I thank myself for honoring myself enough to recognize her significant value.

With love and lots of gratitude,

Angel-Rose Coen

Nicole at Smack Happy Design is amazing! I hired her to take my concept for a logo and website into reality. She took my ideas to the next level and I love them. I get tons of compliments on my business cards and my website. And she was an absolute joy to work with.

She was a really clear communicator and really understood what I was looking for. And when I didn’t know exactly what I wanted for some detail, she came up with great solutions. Her experience in so many facets of design, marketing, and websites really shows. I love that I have a website that is totally custom and professional, yet I can edit it myself while relying on her WordPress editing guide. Since then she’s put together some print materials for my business and they’ve all come out great.

While starting up my business I’ve worked with lots of different professionals to get things lined up and she was the shining star when it comes to communication, promptness, and high quality work. If you have any design, website, or print needs, call Nicole and she’ll take care of you!

I was unhappy with my “build it yourself” website and needed professional help with design and implementation.  Nicole was recommended to me by a friend and I could not be happier with the results.  Nicole is responsive, reasonable and a joy to work with.  If you want a great website and a wonderful experience with the process, contact Nicole at Smack Happy Design, LLC!

Smack Happy is a joy to work with. The only designer I know who I can completely trust to: understand what I’m going for, make great initial mocks, work with my feedback and then actually build in my code base! I enjoy simply giving my input, reviewing mocks and then seeing the results live on the web days later.

Nicole is easy to work with and is adept at many different design styles. She turns my ideas and guidance into a usable, coherent product design.

I recommend her highly and look forward to working with her again on future projects.
