Nancy's expertise and deft hand were on full display throughout of design and publication process.

She understands the importance of branding and messaging and is able to successfully carry these elements through from one project to the next. As a communications manager, I appreciate working with a graphic designer who is flexible and always meets her deadlines.”— Meri Erickson, Communications Manager, Greenwich Land Trust
“We have worked with Nancy Ruzow in a professional capacity since 2013, during which time she and her team have proven themselves to be a reliable and talented resource for our agency.
In her work, Nancy provides clean design, targeted to the needs and ask of the client. The range of work that she has executed for us has included: ads, banners, newsletter design, datasheet/ whitepaper design, template development.”— Juliana Slye, CEO and Managing Principal, Government Business Results
“Nancy was hired by Boys & Girls Village to be part of our newly emerging marketing and development team. Our goal was to create user friendly materials as well as to reflect the dynamic nature of our organization. Essentially turning traditional marketing and development materials into a branding opportunity to reflect our values and mission. To make this happen required a considerable level of creativity as well as working seamlessly with the other members of the team. Nancy provided a range of options that furthered more discussion and even more innovation. When all was said and done we ended up with an award winning product (our annual report)! Nancy’s work with us has been very rewarding and has continued to help shape our marketing and branding efforts.”— Dr. Steven Kant, CEO, Boys & Girls Village
"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. I appreciate her attention to detail and ability to work within established corporate branding guidelines, yet add a flair of creativity too."— Drake Manning, Senior Director, Head of Communications, Swiss Re
“Oxford had before it what was, literally, a once in a millennium opportunity. A major prospect challenged us to envision a new center for the humanities that was more than an office building for academics. It was to be a mini-Lincoln Center, with a 500-seat auditorium, theater, galleries, a television studio, and other public-facing amenities that would project Oxford's voice into the world. We were under enormous pressure. Within days, Nancy produced five exquisite program brochures that helped us bring this proposed center to life for the prospect. He was thrilled with the vision. Next the prospect challenged us to create an operating plan for the center. From our New York office, Nancy and I worked side-by-side, many late nights (our longest day was 17 hours!). At one point, I turned to her and asked, have you been to Oxford? The next day we were on a plane headed for the UK. Oxford's Dean of Humanities set up a "war room" for us in her office, and with a small group of half a dozen people, we wrote and designed a visually stunning plan that won Oxford the largest gift received in its thousand year history, roughly $200 million to build the new Stephen A. Schwarzman Centre for the Humanities. We would never have gotten there were it not for Nancy's patience, perseverance, and professionalism.”— Michael Cooper, Associate Vice-President, University of Oxford
“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.”— Alan Bergman, Cosmos Communications
“We hired Ruzow Graphics to create a marketing plan, sub-logos, digital ads, and brochures, that could speak to three distinct audiences, yet have a similar look and feel. She came up with great, clean designs, found the perfect photos, and came up with a template to use now and in the future. Nancy and her team were easy to work with, kept our schedule and budget in mind at all times. We are very pleased.”— Susan Linn, President & CEO, Epilepsy Foundation of New England
“Nancy is a great resource to have available, she is a creative, out-of-the-box designer that provides various options and results. We’ve worked with Nancy on advertising and conference needs, and I would highly recommend her. ”— Ashlyn Westling, Senior Director of Communications, SiriusDecisions
"Nancy is a collaborator as well as a designer. I assume many of her business clients are in situations similar to mine, where development time and budget are limited, and approval of graphics can be a mysterious process involving many pairs of eyes and more subjective opinions than anyone could possibly want. Despite the challenges associated with attempting to satisfy so many needs, Nancy not only retains her sense of humor but is flexible and tremendously efficient, to boot. She is simply one of those contractors to be added to your "go-to" list of partners who are dependable, reliable, smart, economical, and talented. I'm very grateful to have her contact info in my arsenal!"— Harry Althaus, Project Manager, NYU
“Ruzow Graphics created a new direction with a fresh perspective. The logo and branding are everything that I was looking to achieve, and we’re getting great comments from all over, internally and externally. It was great how you walked through so many options with us down to the smallest details including our choice of colors, stationery designs, and even email signatures.
The website design is stellar and the service that you and Lloyd continue to provide is truly appreciated. Since our new site is up we are seeing more activity and a positive direction on our ROI.
Nancy and Lloyd are wonderful to work with — we couldn’t be more pleased with the quality and creativity they bring to every project we give them — from website maintenance, to print materials, to email designs. Thank you for your help and hard work in designing a new vision for our future.”— Kenny Zais, Owner & President, O’Brien & Levine Court Reporting
“Nancy Ruzow is more than a designer; she is an amazing storyteller! In October 2020, the University of Oxford will mark the centenary of the admission of women. With the anniversary, we hope not only to celebrate women, but also to elevate women. We launched a fundraising campaign to create the “Hillary Rodham Clinton Chair in Women’s History,” the first of its kind in the world. Secretary Clinton and Oxford’s Vice-Chancellor would be personally engaged in the effort. We needed a sophisticated print piece—something to help us convey not only the history of women at Oxford, but also our plans for the new “statutory chair.” When we presented our very rough content, Nancy immediately saw the narrative structure that had eluded us. She helped us restructure our thinking, recommending not one, but two print pieces. Each would stand on its own, but when nested together, they would provide a compelling value proposition. We sought to raise $5 million to endow the Chair, and in less than six months, raised $6 million from 60 donors. Two separate $1 million gifts were directly inspired by Nancy’s amazing work with one of those donors specifically mentioning how the print piece prompted her to give at a much higher level than she might otherwise have considered. I have often heard colleagues say, “People don’t give to brochures.” Their brochures were not designed by Nancy Ruzow.”— Michael Cooper, Associate Vice President, University of Oxford
"We first reached out to Ruzow Graphics for a print ad that needed to be turned around in a few days. Nancy was very attentive to our needs and absolutely knocked it out of the park. Since then I have worked with Nancy on various advertising and promotional initiatives.
Nancy brings a creative element to her graphic designs to complement the content curation and copywriting of our marketing communications across TSC and its family of companies' media outlets. Nancy is on-point to quickly draft brilliantly designed files for our subway advertising campaigns, print and digital insertions across a variety of industry-specific publications and online channels. Nancy has a diverse background in both the public and private sectors.
With an eye for detailed design work, she can be relied upon to creatively curate strong corporate pieces across industries. She is a trusted and reliable vendor partner and it is a pleasure working with her as a consultant to supplement our marketing department's efforts."— Tarah Cicirelli, Marketing Manager, Total Safety Consulting
"I have worked with Nancy for more than a decade on the design and production of a publication used by my organization as our principal marketing tool. Her professionalism is matched by her artistic talent. Nancy does a great job of listening to your needs and offers a range of designs based on the themes discussed. I highly recommend her as a graphic designer. The added bonus is that she has the ideal temperament to handle multiple projects on deadline."— Robert Chapman, VP Administration, New York Building Congress
"Nancy was our lifesaver while we had an employee on maternity leave. She was responsive, flexible, and understanding that each of our physicians have different needs and preferences on how things are designed. She made my job easier during this time, and I never had to worry about missing deadlines or work coming in anything less than the best. I would highly recommend Nancy to anyone who needs help with a creative project or even if they are short-staffed for a temporary period of time."— Maria Kohlmeier, Marketing Project Manager, Forefront Dermatology
“Nancy is not only an amazing designer but a true tour de force. She leads so many creative groups that help women entrepreneurs, and I'm constantly in awe of how she has time to do everything she does, with aplomb. Also a master connector, Nancy lives up to her word and then some. I've had the pleasure to work on several projects with her and she's a consummate professional. Anyone would be fortunate to have Nancy work on their design projects.”— Danielle Hughes, Chief Personality Officer, More Than Words

"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 designer 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."— Robert Whetsell, Crown Products
"What a great experience working with Ruzow Graphics! 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 Ruzow Graphics."— Laura Bodner, Chief Content Officer, Government Business Results
“I hired Nancy to do trade show promotion collateral at a company which had very specific design / financial / deadline constraints.

Would work with her again in a heartbeat!”— Beth Plummer, Ullo International and Wood Logan Associates

Highly recommend!"— Jeanine Badalmenti, Senior Vice President, New York Building Congress
"I have worked with Nancy since 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. I am particularly impressed with her use of color and uniquely designed illustrations. 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!"— Christine Biela, NYU, Global Institute of Public Health
“As an Architect and creative individual, I was searching for a Graphic Designer who could articulate an image for my firm I was trying to create. Nancy asks questions that I had not thought to ask myself, helping me identify what was important for my logo. I was impressed to find that Nancy’s quick sketches came close to the mark on the first try. Nancy’s streamlined process quickly narrowed down the right design. With her expertise and dialogue, we were able to finalize the logo, which won a Graphic Design award. I appreciate all of Nancy’s hard work and constant advice. I am still receiving compliments of the simplicity and elegance of my logo.”— Andrea Zaff, Architect, Zaff Architecture

She did an awesome job on our logo design and all of the branded materials that we have created since. When developing the logo, Nancy not only listened and laughed with us as partners throughout the process but delivered a beautiful logo that stands the test of time.

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!
