Great designer, very responsive. Can have some communication challenges (language barrier I think).
We had a very open ended brief for the two key pages of our website we wanted to get designs for. What we loved about using 99 designs was we got a wide variety of design iterations that allowed us to fine tune our requirements and our desired look and feel.
Nicka did a great job of providing different versions of a potential vision, while still maintaining strong usability principles in the design. When we provided feedback Nicka was able to successfully change core elements of the page to meet these new requirements. Often, other designers provided only small changes against their original vision, but Nicka did an excellent job of sticking to core design thinking principles of not getting too focused on one version of a design and rapidly creating multiple iterations of color, feel, background and layout. Nicka also was willing to go the extra mile and do minor revisions of the design after we had decided to award so that we had a no hassle handover to our development team.
We hope Nicka participates in the other contests I'm sure we will continue to have on 99designs!
I had an incredible experience working with acandrei and I am looking forward to continue working together. Excellent design and exceeded my expectations!
