Client Testimonials

  • A hard worker who knows no shortcuts, Nic Yulo always works as efficiently and effectively as possible. She is not afraid to experiment with new trends, but can easily adjust to classic styles and methods. And the results are never a disappointment. She is a joy to work with, as she listens, she follows, she suggests, she innovates, and she truly cares for the output she creates. 

    Carmen Silverio-Roxas - Editorial Director, GeiserMaclang
  • I have been a fan of Nic Yulo's art for many years. She is a creative and original thinker whose unique brand of storytelling imbues her characters - on page, canvas or film - with a life all their own. I can say with confidence that Nic has a bright future of innovation ahead of her. I look forward to following her blossoming career.

    Anna Gadzinski - Former Client
  • As an intern at Overlook Press, Nic went above and beyond helping across multiple departments, taking on extra work, and making sure her work held up to the highest standards. She was an invaluable asset and anyone would be lucky to have her on a creative team.
