    Branden Moskwa

    Web Development and eCommerce Specialist

    Canada - Last active: 10 days ago - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 3

    Branden Moskwa is a Doer and Achiever, having competed in NCAA College Baseball, Scout to the SanDiego Padres in the 2005 NL West championship season and Assistant coach at TRU for the 2005 National Championship. After injuries continued to sideline his competitive sports career he returned home and became one of the trail blazing pioneers to complete a newly offered and nationally acclaimed entrepreneurship degree program offered at Mount Royal. During his studies Branden also re-found his love of technology, ingrained in him from childhood, where his father would lug a “Luggable” computer up and down flights of stairs so that Branden could learn the artful skills of programming when growing bored of the unbeatable tic-tac-toe games. Just months after graduation quit a stable job with a fortune 500, to begin building his mobile advertising empire. Within another 4 months, before the days of social media and online viral campaigns was featured in over 30 traditional media outlets including CBC, CNN, and the Globe&Mail. Using technology unseen in the industry, as an accelerator Branden took lead of the new and emerging market space. Several years later, after negotiating international licensing agreements, Branden closed one final deal and ventured onwards to new entrepreneurial experiences. Branden co-founded Tradeopolis Communications in 2006, and grew this organization into a profitable consulting firm with increased profits year over year. Branden believes that to survive in business requires obsessive focus and relentless determination, coupled with genuine and honest interactions with all those around him. He marries these together in perfect harmony. Nominated for the 2013 Guardian Small Business Leader Of The Year, Branden is passionate about connecting and building relationships, specifically with entrepreneurs and works in an advisory capacity with various clients he believes have the "it" factor.

    Copywriter at plantadvertising.com

    Australia - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 7 - Portfolio: 2

    An Australian copywriter with over 14 years’ experience, I got my first full-time agency position when renowned advertising profile Steve Trygg saw the work I was doing whilst studying at Berghs School of Communication, one of Europe’s foremost marketing academies. Steve immediately offered me employment at his B2B agency SandbergTrygg, at whose European headquarters I then worked in parallel with my copywriting studies. This was way back in 2001. Covering quite technical accounts in the telecommunications, trucking and stock-trading industries, I stayed with SandbergTrygg until relocating to Cairns in 2003. Adpower Plus, at the time North Queensland’s largest advertising agency, then employed me to service their clients – a mix of B2B and B2C companies and organisations, including Stockland Shopping Centres, Pacific Toyota, Medtel, Tourism Tropical North Queensland and Cairns Convention Centre, to name a few. Having made my mark on the Queensland market, I proceeded to go international with my own business in 2006 and have since worked for clients ranging from large corporations and organisations such as Rio Tinto, City West Water and the Maavarim Group to smaller outfits such as Zimperium Technologies, Enteract and Joolca. This has involved research, analysis, conceptualisation, copywriting and creative direction for numerous very different products. In other words: I’m equally at home advertising fast-moving products in the Western retail market as I am selling hospital equipment to African governments. Every last bit of my creative is built on solid research. Simply put, I not only come up with HOW to convey your message; I also provide the strategy required to decide WHAT to say. Since 2011, I am based out of Melbourne, where I run the strategic marketing agency Plant Advertising. And it’s only now that this piece of text is going to get truly valuable to you, because, for all that I’ve told you above, what really matters is how good my actual copy is, right? So, check out the work samples at www.plantadvertising.com or have a look in the special Dropbox folder that I’ve prepared for oDesk clients at http://bit.ly/1t95lkB Remember, whatever copywriter you end up selecting for your project, the whole point of creative is to increase sales or otherwise convince your target group of this, that or the other – and far from all copy does that. Bottom line: if you’re going to compromise on your marketing, you might as well not do it at all. Looking forward to hearing from you. Kind regards, Paul Walden

    Animator + Graphic Designer + Illustrator

    United States - Last active: 3 days ago - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 7

    I have spent the past several years honing my skills as a freelance graphic designer, illustrator and animator. Through this process I have developed my work ethic as well as my skill set. Having the opportunity to work with a plethora of companies has taught me how to adhere to strict and timely deadlines, as well as adapt my personal artistic style, and mode of communication to fit the needs of diverse clients. I have created promotional products, animations, packaging, brand concepts, and illustrations just to name a few tasks. I have received consistent positive feedback, and in return I receive back-to-back projects and work on many assignments at any given time. I feel extremely comfortable brainstorming with clients to grasp their complete vision, as well as juggling the projects that I am required to complete. I have the ability to take a clients vision and turn it into a tangible, useable product, or design. This ability and the positive feedback I receive make my job rewarding on a daily basis.
