Experienced Consultant, Writer and Graphic Medic

United States - Tests: 29 - Portfolio: 16

Have you ever hired a designer to create the perfect work but they didn’t quite capture your vision? Did you find the ideal freelancer but they had to bail out before finishing the project? Were you satisfied with your contractor but the agreement didn’t include revisions and you need a change made yesterday? I can fix that for you, stat. My specialty is doctoring, editing, retouching, re-creating and otherwise improving designs using Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. I draw my own elements, find great stock and match your layout to make that almost-perfect image into exactly what you were looking for. That’s not all though. I also write high quality, well-researched keyword-rich content, edit and proofread existing written work, offer exceptional customer experience support and training, and provide many other solutions for the enrichment of your business. If you experience the occasional emergency that requires an experienced graphic medic or if your workload is overflowing and you need someone who knows how to triage, save me as a favorite or hire me today!
