TESTIMONIALS

Nicole Czmiel

Nicole Czmiel Field Programs Coordinator at Claire’s Stores, Inc.

I’ve had the utmost pleasure of working alongside Nick during our time together at RealSupport, Inc. Nick has the rare ability to take direction from many sources such as clients, executives and account managers to produce quality work for client satisfaction. He also holds a sincere can-do attitude and is an excellent problem solver when it comes to graphic/web design. Unlike most graphic designers I’ve worked with in the past, Nick is able to work well independently as well as alongside others and is always vocal about his creative input. Furthermore, Nick would be a great asset to any company!

Todd Merrill

Todd Merrill Transportation Specialist, Customer Relationship Manager

Nick and I worked together at RealSupport, Inc on web development and graphic design projects. Nick is very talented in both areas but perhaps his best quality is his ability to take the vision and make it into a reality. He takes the time to study the client, know the market and thinks “outside of the box” in order to come up with the highest quality marketing for our clients. Nick also does this within strict deadlines and budget in order to meet both internal demands and client expectation. Nick is excellent at what he does and he has a long and successful future ahead of him in design.

Ronald Livigni

Ronald Livigni Market Center Administrator at Keller Williams Sonoran Living

I had the pleasure of working with Nicholas Gray as a web developer at RealSupport, Inc. Throughout Nick’s period of employment, I
grew increasing impressed with his web development skills and implementations. Having extensive graphic design skills, in addition to his top-notch web development skills, was truly an added bonus and allowed full website development projects to be completed more efficiently. Nick’s professionalism, expert WordPress knowledge, calm demeanor in the face of stressful clients and deadlines, as well as his “outside of the box thinking” were truly a blessing. Nick’s ability to manipulate existing themes and plugins, in addition to creating custom implementations, allowed out company to extend our capabilities and provide our clients with better web
solutions than previous.
