I also have corporate training development experience with UnitedHealthcare and Manic Media Group, INC, based in Washington D.C.. Within those two positions I managed multiple projects and assumed a lead designer role. I was tasked with implementing best practices, solid design work, and suggesting appropriate design methods while remaining innovative. Within Instructional Design, I am a multipurpose tool. I excel at front-end analysis, developing the foundation for design and development through the ADDIE model, evaluation and measurement, and overall client relations. Furthermore, as a creative individual, I also excel at storyboarding, multimedia development, photography, and various design software programs, such as the Adobe Creative Suite and Microsoft Office. I have intermediate to proficient skills with most technologies used in this fiend, to include BlackBoard, Lectora, and Camtasia. Being able to design and develop instructional materials and systems with outstanding design and visual principles, and developing full working instructional design systems that are rich with analysis and instructional design theory, I feel I am a perfect candidate for this position.

    Freelance Designer

    France - Last active: 22 days ago - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 18

    Making beautiful things and making you smile. That's my job. Check out my portfolio here : www.behance.net/atlal /* --- MY WORK ---*/ 4 years of experience and a lot of passion later, here I am. On the fly, always up to date and responsive to your expectations. /* --- LANGUAGES ---*/ Native language : french. Native level (C2) : french, english Can understand/translate from (besides the ones mentioned above) : arabic, italian Can translate to : french & english, but particularly french. /* --- CODING ---*/ I prefer directly coding the websites I'm designing. Wasting time making it on photoshop first is something I'm not very fond of. I have some experience in php, mysql and jQuery but my 'ninja grasp' is in designing and putting it together html/css. But I have the ability to work with these languages, otherwise I wouldn't mention them :) /* --- TIME - PAY ---*/ I am always available and don't require much pay. I'm hard working and can work on projects even if they are time limited. I do not have a limit of working hours per week because I am not on any 'big' project right now that would take my time. So I'm a full timer. I can work as much as you need. NOTE CONCERNING WORK HOURS : - PLEASE consider my timezone if I'm not replying to your messages right away : it may be 3 AM, and I may be dreaming about your project. I usually reply within 5 minutes of your request, if not immediately. After long hours of hard work there's nothing better than a happy and satisfied customer, who I hope will be you.
