“In my tenure in the advertising world I have worked with many artists and "creative thinkers". The general attitude has always been one of self-centered dogmatism towards the "vision" without a spirit of team-work or compromise. I find myself coming into any meeting or project expecting a dog-fight. However, Nic has blown all these expectations right out of the water. Not only is he an amazing artist and designer, and an extremely gifted creative thinker, but he approaches every problem with an inclusive team-oriented method. Nic both demands and receives the best possible work out of everyone surrounding him on projects, not out of begrudging obligation, but out of the shear joy of collaboration and Nic's infectious excitement. I would work with, or quite frankly for Nic on any project at any company, and would always sleep well knowing that not only would we be making the ordinary amazing, we'd be doing it as a team.” February 10, 2008

Tom Richardson : Developer , Slingshot LLC.


“Nic's title is Senior Art Director, but that's because we don't have the title of Senior Problem-Solver. From logo design to print to in-store/on-premise to web design to social media (and everywhere in between), Nic has a knack for visualizing and communicating not only creative strategies but overarching brand strategies. In my time working with Nic, he quickly became a go-to- guy when it came to problem-solving, but the only thing better than Nic's problem solving is his ability to inspire others problem-solving skills. For all of the times I've seen Nic solve the team's problems, whether it be through an idea, his work, or both, I've seen him help others solve their own problems just as many times. Above all the biggest compliment I can pay Nic is that he is one of those few people that truly make the people around him better at their jobs.”

Charles Black : Account Supervisor, Slingshot LLC.

“Nic Climer is a machine. Not long after we hired Nic, a young Art Director came to me and asked, "Do I have to start working as hard as that guy?" I said "no," only because I didn't want to work as hard as Nic did, either. But his incredible work ethic only begins to tell the story. He's also a terrific creative talent, a shrewd strategic thinker, a first rate presenter, and a genuine team player. If you have the chance to add him to your team, don't hesitate. I'm proud to recommend Nic, and hope to work with him again some day.”

David Coats : VP/ Executive Creative Director , Slingshot LLC.

"Having worked with Nic for the past year, witnessing his quality standards, strong sense of urgency, and endless desire for accomplishment, I found myself having higher expectations for myself than before our time together. Nic is a creative and an entrepreneur. As a designer he doesn't limit project focus to aesthetics. He understands industry context and succeeds in finding seemingly new solutions to old problems. As a customer service manager his shared enthusiasm and upbeat social skills helped us all to sell more product and to lessen the potency of bad situations as they came about. Nic has been my vendor, my associate, my boss, my student and a dear friend who I recommend to anyone needing help with Marketing, Creative Direction, Sales or anything else related to selling you products or services. A rare find indeed."

Matt Louis : Director Corporate Sales, PrintPlace.com


"Mr. Climer is the most talented graphic artist that I have had the fortune to work with. His skill and vision have never failed to impress me and my clients. I have been able to give him jobs on very short notice and he has always delivered with better than expected results. I would definitely recommend him to anyone; you can depend on him to consistently deliver exceptional results."

Sean Coutryman : Owner, EnemyPlanetWeb Development


""Nic is one of the hardest working men I know. His generosity of spirit and work ethic are unmatched. If you need someone with vision and great management skills, talk to Nic. He is the real deal.""

Darius Holbert : Music Director, MeanRedMusic


"The donated services that Nicholas provided to the Well Community have been top-notch. He helped design our logo, website, and other promotional materials. As a nonprofit leader you can get burned by unfulfilled promises. However, Nicholas has always come through and delivered what was offered."
