I loved Vicki and was attracted to her by the very fact that she offered more than just a design. Vicki worked to get to know me, what set me apart from others and what I was looking for. Her personality was also a huge draw. Then on top of all that she provided insight and feedback that were really important for me to hear and understand. And let’s not forget patience! She was willing to tweak and adjust several times until we both felt it was the perfect fit.
I was attracted firstly to Vicki via her Facebook presence and how she conducted herself as a professional and knew what she were talking about (and had a fab freebie). So many graphic designers just post images of business cards and logo design, but you actually focused on branding and that’s what I needed and liked, and your work was brilliant.
I initially found Vicki through the referral of Sophia, and I liked Vicki’s interaction with her Facebook group. The main attraction for me was that she said she was really invested in getting it right, and I believed her. I’ve had one other branding experience before, and I felt invisible. The designer didn’t get me, (she sent me bunting!). The revisions were pretty much the same, so it was a complete waste of time and money. I just had a feeling that Vicki would ‘get’ it anyway- and I was right! In a nutshell – confidence that she’d REALLY listen.
I found the BEST graphic designer! She’s a mom entrepreneur who is on the other side of the pond but that doesn’t matter with technology now does it!
Thanks a million. I’m gonna miss the excitement of opening your emails once this is all finished!
Vicki has been awesome to work with. She has taken my branding, brief and turned around the most fantastic results. She is super lovely to speak to and work with, professional, friendly and is willing to work to your business required. I definitely recommend working with Vicki, she has an absolute flare for colour and design and is really really nice to work with too.
My branding is SO me, I love it, pure and simple. It is perfect and flawless in every way and I am super proud to show it off to everyone. I want to say that working with Vicki is an ABSOLUTE JOY. She is super efficient and timely. She always delivers when she says she will. I never once had to chase her which makes me as a business owner feel completely at ease and reassured. Vicki is BRILLIANT at what she does and creates such AMAZING work. I definitely feel like I have been in BRANDING THERAPY and emerged super charged and ready to go get my business seen.
I first worked with Vicki as part of a charity event in 2006 where she looked after all of our design requirements. Since then, I have engaged Vicki’s talents several times to create three brands for my business and each time an innate display of innovation, creativity and enthusiasm has delivered outstanding results. Vicki can build on her client’s visions and bring them to life in a way that I personally have not previously experienced. She is persistent and consistent in the high quality of all her designs and nothing is ever too much trouble. I went to a media forum recently and I lost count of the number of compliments I received about my logo. I knew what I wanted when I saw it, Vicki made it happen.
The final result of Vicki’s work was just so appropriate for my business. It is eye catching and elegant while having a twist of humour. Vicki is excellent to work with. It was obvious that her priority was to make sure that I was not only satisfied with the job but also to ensure that what she produced was for the utmost best for my business. The graphic was not only to look good, it needed the highest possible impact for the business. Vicki offered suggestions and liaised continually and promptly until the job was finalised. When I first saw my new logo, I was so thrilled and delighted that I couldn’t wait to buy a van to get advertising. I would recommend Vicki simply because her focus is not just on producing work that is impressive to look at. I immediately recognised that Vicki’s main aim was to produce work which would impact my business for the very best. Vicki wants businesses to thrive. She is genuinely enthusiastic about this important point. She will work hard not just to produce what you want but really what your business needs. She will not compromise on quality and impact. If she believes that a customer’s ideas can be enhanced, she may have to subtly suggest different ways, but she will not settle for second best!
I hired Vicki to help re-brand my hairdressing business following a move to a new town and I needed a fresh new look to help target my new market. Vicki is an excellent graphic designer and has demonstrated on a regular basis her ability to generate high quality, creative design with minimal guidance. Vicki helped me find my identity through a new logo, business cards and price lists and when I was ready Vicki then went on to design my facebook cover photos. I will be sure to hire her again.
Day1 and Inverness Kart Raceway have employed Vicki Nicolson as our sole graphic designer since 2010. Working to a very open brief, Vicki has consistently produced graphics that far surpass our hopes or expectations. She takes a real pride in her design work and has a very professional approach to customer service. I have no doubt that her work on our year-end reports have been a significant factor in our securing funding from grant providers and I look forward to a continued excellent relationship with Vicki. I think the best testament that I can give, is Vicki’s ability to consistently produce ideas and designs that intuitively fit perfectly with our needs with an absolute minimum of input needed from the client side. I have no hesitation in recommending her as an extremely able graphic designer.
I just wanted to thank you personally for the work you did on our ebook. Wow – I am really blown away. You really captured our brand so well and your turn around time was phenomenal. Thank you so much.
Vicki helped me with branding and sorted out my business. I can’t believe how much better I feel about everything now it seems so organised and branded beautifully. It’s gave me a huge confidence boost when I talk to someone, it’s all so professional. I have finally found my voice!!! I now have a clear focus on my goals and my future – I will never look back. Every time I workout/exercise I get a proud feeling looking at this. I never thought I would ever have my own branded merchandise. Thanks Vicki for all your help, you’re a gem and amazing at what you do.
Four years ago I opened my first Children’s Nursery and with Vicki’s help, we designed the branding that brought my business to life. Vicki has always taken into account my business needs, my business type, the type of images to use and takes on board my ideas. I have always found working with Vicki to be easy, reliable and she not only does a fist class job, but is a genuinely nice person to work with on projects too. I am in no doubt that Vicki has contributed to the growth and development of my business through the catchy adverts and branding. The quality of work is excellent!

I first worked alongside Vicki in Cyprus more than ten years ago so she’s also a much loved friend. Since then she’s wowed me with graphics and brand expertise for my coaching and mentoring business. She has a stunning ability to ask just a few questions and then produce exactly what I need even though I didn’t have the words to articulate it. Her work is outstanding quality, highly versatile and her turnaround time is brilliant. She’s intuitive, professional and down to earth. She’ll always be my go to graphics guru.
