We hired Nancy for a seven week project. Nancy was not only professional, but she also came prepared with questions and ideas. She met every deadline. Her creative eye was a delight to work with, and when we explained our design concepts to her she was able to execute them even better than we had imagined. In our review conversations, she was always prepared and engaging—asking probing questions about our ideas and needs and offering solutions on-the-spot. Nancy and her editorial partner were wonderful to work with; their professional and easy-to-work-with demeanors were a perfect combination on our creative collaboration.

"Nancy is a gifted designer and provides an exceptional level of service for her clients. I had a fantastic experience working with her on a "short-fuse" project last year. We met the deadline! I appreciate her attention to detail and ability to work within established corporate branding guidelines, yet add a flair of creativity too."

ruzowgraphics has done really great work for us at NYU College of Nursing. Nancy has taken thoughts and ideas we had and come back with exactly the design we wanted. She is an amazingly creative and talented person, and her work clearly reflects her love for design and for helping her clients meet their objective.
FOX RPM CORP.
Great work all around Nancy was very responsive, exceeding expectations and turnaround time. I would hire Nancy in a heartbeat as her design, professionalism and willingness to go above and beyond is second to none.
I have seen Nancy almost magically transform cumbersome, data-filled reports into very user-friendly and visually pleasing print collateral material. She always designs with the end-user in mind, and has no shortage of creative solutions to various challenges that she may encounter. Her attention to the most minute details has proven to be a project life-saver many times.

Nancy is great to work with — punctual, professional, and personable. Trifecta. Did I mention creative? Heartily recommend.

Nancy is a delight to work with. Not only is she creative, but she's reliable, fast, and accommodating, which certainly makes my life easier!
WESTPORT PUBLIC LIBRARY
After careful thought, Nancy Ruzow dug right in and created a world-class design for Westport Library's townwide read. Inspired by her design and message, more people participated in this program than years before, raising the excitement that only great graphics can to communicate the connection between community and a book.
I have worked with Nancy on several projects and will go back to her for more because she is responsive and professional. She listens and provides great insight when it comes to design matters. I appreciate the number of ideas she presents and how she helps choose the right direction for a particular project. I’m looking forward to our next project.

Health Program Coordinator
GROTON ALLIANCE FOR SUBSTANCE ABUSE PREVENTION
Our community-based non-profit was lucky to have ruzowgraphics work with us on our logo redesign. The entire process was seamless and very easy. After talking on the phone with Nancy about a vision for a new logo for our non-profit she instantly understood what we were looking for and created images that matched our vision. It’s hard to please everyone with a logo because everyone has a different opinion, but we were able to please everyone with Nancy’s design work. We love our new logo!

I highly recommend Nancy’s work for anyone in need of a great designer.

Nancy’s ability to translate our goals into her design, as well as her attention to details and quick turnaround resulted in an award-winning website. Bravo!
DONNA M. SHERRY INTERIOR DESIGN
Nancy is a very creative graphic designer who listened to what I was trying to achieve and came up with a very innovative concept. I am an interior designer and I wanted to update my business cards and stationery logo. Nancy provided me with several design options and then we collaborated on the color schemes as well. It was a very thorough process, and in the end the result was a very fresh, artistic design that gets complimented every time I hand one out! After many years it was time for me to create my website. The process was a bit more complicated than the logo design and execution; however, Nancy brought the same amount of enthusiasm and dedication to the challenge. The design went through several stages before the final version was set. It incorporated my new logo concept into a wonderful composite of my work and my goals. We chose to separate the photographs into the different rooms of a home so that potential clients can compare and contrast the various styles easily. Nancy was given an award for the design, and I certainly would recommend that you choose her for web design and your entire graphic needs!
Nancy taught me everything I know about typography as well as the importance of being organized and sticking to deadlines. Nancy has an incredible amount of experience as an independent designer and gave me invaluable business advice on how to survive as a designer in the real world. She’s a patient teacher who gives honest advice, and she helped me develop my confidence as a designer.
NEW ENGLAND PEDIATRICS
Nancy produced an award-winning site for us. She was patient and adapted to our pace, which made her a pleasure to work with. She understood our goals and introduced a contemporary flair while maintaining continuity with our existing brand image. Our website is easy to maintain and update. I welcome the opportunity to work with her in the future.
NYU GLOBAL INSTITUTE OF PUBLIC HEALTH
I have worked with Nancy for several years now, first through Hemming+Gilman Productions in 2009. I remember being immediately impressed with her creativity, integration of client branding, and quick turn-around time for our printed materials. After transitioning to New York University and being able to hire my own freelance designer, Nancy was my first and only call. She has created truly memorable and original pieces for us – for one event in particular, I sent her only one or two pictures of the venue and she used the antique mirrors as inspiration for our Art Deco-themed "Save the Date" postcards and invitations. I am particularly impressed with her use of color and uniquely designed illustrations and borders. The school’s leadership was so overjoyed with the pieces that they requested she also create the annual holiday cards. Again, each concept she sent was truly innovative and reflected the company’s own style and branding. Nancy has always been willing to help me out with last-minute requests and is timely with edits, which makes my life much easier. It has been a true privilege to work with her and I wouldn't trust my designs with anyone else!
Great results working with you. Highly recommended for jobs done right first time.
Director of Marketing
I have worked with Nancy on many projects during the past 8 years and during that time Nancy has continually impressed me with unusual and innovative design work. With her interesting and highly creative design capabilities, we were able to develop unique marketing ideas across several industries that translated into extremely effective campaigns. I will continue to use her whenever I am in need of someone who possesses creativity and the ability to meet some tough deadlines! She is a professional of the highest quality who brings expertise, energy, and creativity to all of her projects. I recommend her with great enthusiasm!

Graphic Design Student
NORWALK COMMUNITY COLLEGE
I had the pleasure to intern at Nancy’s design studio and it was a great experience. Nancy has so much knowledge of design and the programs we use that they did not teach in school. She was very patient, helpful, and professional; the things I gained will always stay with me.
Manager, Production and Creative Services and Production Manager
ULLO INTERNATIONAL and WOOD LOGAN ASSOCIATES
I hired Nancy to do tradeshow promotion collateral at a company which had very specific design/financial/deadline constraints. She very easily adapted to the company-specific requirements while maintaining creativity — which was key! When I moved on to a different position and had the ability to hire graphic talent once again, Nancy was the first person I recommended at that job! Would work with her again in a heartbeat!
Chief Content Officer
GOVERNMENT BUSINESS RESULTS
What a great experience working with ruzowgraphics! I had a very short turnaround project and got everything back ahead of schedule. The final design was absolutely beautiful. I was delighted with the result and would be glad to have another opportunity to work with ruzowgraphics.
Director of Operations
Often the challenge with creative technicians, whether graphic or IT, is that they “know better” than the client. Nancy perfectly melded her expertise with our requests. The project was simple, just a little fiddling around with our company logo, but the potential existed for an experienced graphic artist to start pushing his/her ideas on a company that was not interested in a major facelift. Nancy’s communication was quick, clear, and easy, and her work product was efficient and on time. Her recommendations were presented unobtrusively, and she listened carefully to what we were looking to accomplish. Crown Products was very happy with the results. I have no hesitation in recommending Nancy for any type of graphic design project, and when the time comes we will definitely be reaching out for her services once again.
BARTLETT TREE EXPERTS
Working with Nancy Ruzow was fantastic. She is highly creative, engaged, prompt, and simply a great designer. She is the first person I think of when I have an important project and would highly recommend her services.
