“ I need help immediately with my new logo, that another artist did but completely half assed, Nathan not only explained the issues with the logo but fixed it and had it back, 10000 time better, in an 2 hours. Not only that but he did social media fliers the next day for me for an upcoming event. His style and how he captures what I want to see so perfectly is exactly why I'll keep using Nathan for all my design needs!!
“ As a coworker and designer that worked with Nathan Rojas I can confirm that he is a very talented individual. His work is creative and unique and he always has great ideas for design.
Definitely would refer him to anybody!"
“ Just wanted to thank Nathan for a great job in making my logo & business cards just the way I wanted them. He made it very easy for my to pick and choose what I wanted on it. Fast response and profession. Will definitely be telling everyone about my great experience with him.
Thank you Nathan!"
“ Met Nathan of Offerup. He was very professional and very helpful. Needed some business cards for my barbershop, and man! This dude did an outstanding job on my logo. Nathan is my go 2 for business cards, stickers, and whatever I need for my business. I would refer you guys to him in a heartbeat.
Thanks bro, and keep up the great work!"

Great Job Nathan!"
“ I had no problems dealing with Nathan when it came to the logo I wanted done. He was very patient, and took his time to answer any and all questions I had. It was a little concerning for me at first, having to pay upfront to someone I'm not meeting face to face. But once I started seeing my logo come to life. WOW! He really blew me away with his talent. I will honestly recommend him to any family and friends going forward.
Thanks again Nathan!"
“ Found Nathan by accident on OfferUp. Just so happened I need my logo redone, and needed some business cards for my landscape business. The entire process was simple, he sent me an invoice on PayPal, I paid the deposit, then he got to work on my logo. He showed me how it would look. I need a few changes, the color, and font. He was happy to do them for me, and made it super easy from the beginning. I am happy as can be with how the logo turned out, and the quality of the cards he printed!
Thanks Nathan! Appreciate it!"
