“In my experience with Rikard, he has been a positive, creative, and extremely hard working artist. His graphic designs are among the strongest I’ve seen; his sense of composition, color, and message are world class. His ability to translate my direction into tangible product has made for a tremendously prolific working relationship. I’ve met few graphic artists of Rikard’s caliber and I’d recommend him without hesitation for even the most challenging tasks.” — Taron Lexton, Film & Ad Director, Hollywood

“I have known Rikard in his professional capacity for about 5 years, and in that time I have seen many of his 200 major book covers and packaging designs. I have also seen many more of the concepts that didn’t make it through review. I have been amazed at the breadth of Rikard’s knowledge: from various illustration styles that he can quickly replicate; to 3D renderings with extensive Photoshop work; to stunning combinations of type and photography. To top it all off, I’ve seen that he has performed many of these spectacular works in the shortest of timeframes with enormous pressures, all calmly and with no drama. He is an artist and a professional – and a nice guy, too.” — Jason Niedle, President of 28 Page Agency

“Rikard (Zeven Design) is the ultimate professional. He took care of us and helped us—but he also managed to do this without making us relative newbies feel stupid. It was a delight working with him. We felt very lucky to have such a brilliant person help us with our project. I would recommend him highly and indeed I already have several times. “ — Teresa Kane, The Bath Business
