TESTIMONIALS

KIND WORDS FROM CLIENTS

Hiring Nick, of Peacetime Propaganda to creatively design and build my blog was the best decision I could have ever made for my brand! I wanted a cutting edge design that pushed the limits of a traditional blog, and Nick made my vision a reality, all while considering my audience, SEO and user-ability. It is because of Nick’s attentive nature, prompt communication and passion for web design, that I have a website/blog that is not only aesthetically appealing, but also functional and productive. Nick understood my website needs, but more importantly, he understood what users needed from my website! I highly recommend Nick for custom graphic and web design needs. It is a privilege to have Nick as a key expert to assist in the growth of my brand!

Shauntavia Ward, Founder, eleMINT Nutritional Beauty

Nick did an outstanding job designing a flyer and social media cover photos for an event that I was putting on. His attention to detail and customer service was among the most impressive I’ve seen. The turn around time was very quick, especially considering the fact that it is all custom tailored to your individual needs. Anyone looking to have graphic design/marketing work done, I highly recommend Peacetime Propaganda.

Jaxon Shipley, Owner, Shipley Performance

After interviewing several graphic designers and branding firms, we made the decision to engage Peacetime Propaganda for our branding project. It was important for us to stay local to the Austin-area when selecting our design team, not only to support another small local business like ourselves, but to be able to have a more personal experience with our designer; for example, to grab a coffee to talk through concepts. As a new business owner, it is frightening to invest the money upfront for design services. We were grateful to be able to work with a design team who took the time to ask the questions in order to learn about our business, ensuring that we were in alignment with our aesthetic and goals from the very beginning and therefore enabling us to feel comfortable with this investment.

Not only can I praise Nick on his diligence, but his creativity was really impressive, which resulted in our brilliant logo.

Nick, the owner and lead designer, went above and beyond, again, not only to understand our goals, but to make sure that we remained in alignment throughout the entire process, from initial concepts to final logo to website design. I had numerous questions throughout the project, and Nick was always extremely thorough in his email responses and also took the time to have phone conversations to discuss items. Not only can I praise Nick on his diligence, but his creativity was really impressive, which resulted in our brilliant logo. We provided him a precedent for the direction of the aesthetic and layout of our website, and he was able to execute this impeccably. We would highly recommend Peacetime Propaganda for your branding needs.

Erika Williams, Owner, One Eleven East

Nick redesigned our website and did a superb job consulting and working with us to develop exactly what we were looking. If you are looking for a website designer, Nick is your guy!

Roy D. Rector, Co-Founder & Senior Digital Forensic Examiner, R3 Digital Forensics LLC

I hired Nick to do a complete branding campaign for NurtureMyChild.com. We mapped out an entire plan that included 10+ Facebook ads, flyers, postcards, and multiple ads for electronic and print magazines. We then set the priorities and Nick met every deadline ahead of schedule. He was great to work with and was always happy to do several iterations until I was satisfied. I am so happy with what Nick designed and have already received lots of positive feedback from customers. I highly recommend his work.

Rebecca Cole, Founder & CEO, Nurture My Child

I had the pleasure of working with Nick during a revamp of our team’s annual gala. Though working on an incredibly quick and strict deadline, Nick was able to bring a modern and professional design to the table. His communication and dedication to our project was commendable. I would encourage anyone looking for fresh design concepts to connect with Nick.

Nick Jones of Peacetime Propaganda was a joy to work with throughout his graphic design process providing branding & marketing services for Woods Studio PDX, Inc. Nick immediately was in sync with my conceptual ideas. He collaborated with me to get my vision across in a perfectionist manner, going out of his away to make sure such things as the color was exactly what I envisioned. Nick works with humor, passion and efficiency and kept the communication high by offering options as well as regular updates on progress and production. I absolutely love my logo, business cards, business stationary and so forth. I definitely plan on working with Nick again soon and highly recommend Peacetime Propaganda.

He was also extremely concerned about quality and made sure the assets we had were the best resolution. I would definitely recommend Peacetime Propaganda for anyone looking for a professional and creative designer. I hope we get to work together again soon in the future.

SALTWATERTIDES.COM

The website, www.saltwatertides.com, needed a refresh for its banners and buttons. Peacetime Propaganda was one of several design houses contacted for a quote for the work. They were picked given the samples available on their website and cost. They repeatedly provided several ideas to each need and from this a final version was easy to fix upon. The new banners and button are a very pleasing outcome. We certainly will consider Peacetime Propaganda for future graphics work.

Thomas Koschmieder, Owner, SaltwaterTides.com

PRO-TERRA Aerial Mapping, Inc.

For 12 years we went without professional help in creating our advertising. Then we tried Nick Jones and Peacetime Propaganda. I was pleasantly surprised an artist would be so timely, responsible and quick to understand our highly technical field. Nick worked fast and late into the night to meet a demanding schedule. He worked with little direction and only a few minor revisions, due mostly to our indecision. The ad he created for us was very professional and we are proud to see it in print. I recommend Nick very highly. We look forward to a continued relationship with Nick Jones and Peacetime Propaganda.

John Jasso, Owner, PRO-TERRA Aerial Mapping, Inc.

After our first meeting, I was confident we had the right person for the task. Nick is patient, knowledgeable, and very creative. He was good at communicating with us throughout the whole process. We are excited and pleased with the product he prepared for us and feel confident in knowing we have handed a nice marketing piece to our prospective clients. We will use Peacetime Propaganda for any additional marketing pieces we need in the future. Highly recommend!

Do a Bit of Good

When I needed a fresh logo and a strong brand I spent a lot of time researching and reviewing hundreds of designers. Without a doubt Nick Jones and Peacetime Propaganda exceeded my expectations working often under tight timelines and with little oversight. Nick’s keen eye for fonts and stylistic elements are refreshingly novel in a world full of font faux pas from clipart comedians. Nick delivered a variety of concepts and not just some variation on a theme making the final selection for us one of the most authentic experiences we’ve had, getting some honest feedback and ultimately the best image for our new venture. If you’re reading this, you already know you’ve made the right choice. My suggestion is to engage sooner than later.

David Duccini, Executive Director, Do A Bit of Good

Nick was professional, easy to work with, and produced great results. We were able to complete our project on a tight timeline and it turned out great. So glad to finally be on the same page with a graphic designer!

Keld Ewart, Marketing Coordinator, The Bug Master

We loved working with Nick at Peacetime Propaganda for the graphic design work he did for our team. We’ve hired him for a couple of projects now and he seems to shine every time! He is very personable, he understood the vision clearly and then turned the projects around very quickly both times and for a fair price! One of our projects was extremely last minute and on a tight deadline and he had no problem working around the clock to get it done. He was able to meet and exceed our clients expectations! Nick was great to work with! We have several other design projects that we look forward to working with Peacetime Propaganda on in the future. He will certainly be our go-to source for all things graphic design!

SKRATCH FOODS & CATERING

Ihired Nick to create a logo for a business my husband and I were starting. He was amazing to work with. I came to Nick with just an “idea” and he helped mold and form my vision, turning it into a reality. This was a very personal and important part of our business and Nick made it all possible. I highly recommend Nick for not only his professionalism but his highly creative mind.

Muffy Mascio, Skratch Foods & Catering
 

I “I hired Peacetime Propaganda in 2013 to do a custom re-design of my website, and I’ve had a great experience since day one. I explained my vision to Nick, and the end product was even better than what I had in mind. Having had bad experiences with designers before, I can say that Nick is attentive to detail and I like that he provides a schedule for the work. He has always been responsive and prompt with changes and additions to the site. I don’t plan on going anywhere else.”

Greystar / “Kids Helping Kids”

When I first started working with Nick, I had a very vague idea of what I was looking for. I knew what I wanted, but didn’t know how to describe it or what I wanted it to actually look like. Nick listened to the purpose of the project and asked good questions to help define what it was that I was wanting. The result was absolutely perfect, right on target with what I wanted in spite of me initially not really being sure of what that was. Not only did he create what I was struggling to explain was in my head, but he provided it in a number of formats and colors as we worked through to the final product. He was professional, courteous, and prompt with excellent communication. I felt in the loop throughout the project and also felt that I could reach out to Nick at any time with further questions or needs. I would highly recommend Nick Jones at Peacetime Propaganda.

Iwant to thank Nick Jones of Peacetime Propaganda for the graphic design services he provided in the development of the branding of Blonde Faith Salon. From the first conceptual meeting, I knew we were on the same page from a creative point of view and that the collaboration would be enjoyable, creative and efficient. When I received the first synopsis of our meeting, I knew that I had found my graphic designer and brand developer. He understood my target demographic, understood my design sensibility and understood my creative process. He delivered each phase of the project on time and on target. It was a seemingly effortless process and I couldn’t be happier with the outcome. We love our graphic presence and have received many many compliments on the logo and materials on which we have been able to use the logos, such as our gift bags, website, t-shirts and social media. I highly recommend Nick Jones and Peacetime Propaganda and would not hesitate to call on him for any of our future needs.

MOXIE HAIR LOUNGE

Hiring Nick was the best thing for our website and logo design. Being a control freak, it was hard to relinquish such important business concepts to someone for final visual output. We were very impressed with his ability to listen to our wants and also to look at our business and find other details to implement that we hadn’t noticed. This attention to detail and creative ability on his part really helped put the feel of our salon on the site. We have continued to use Nick’s services for our business since the original hiring in 2011 and we will use him in the future.

Liza Abeel, Owner / Stylist, Moxie Hair Lounge
