    Tech Savy Traditional Media Fantasy Art and Childrens book Illustrator

    United States - Tests: 1 - Portfolio: 2

    I am a freelance illustrator that specializes in traditional media fantasy art. I work heavily in black and white ink illustrations. When I do color I use washes and markers with colored pencils for detail work. While I am skilled in computer art I just prefer the feel of traditional media in my hands. I will however use the computer to do work as needed. My Illustrating style focuses heavily on line work and I have worked hard over 15 years to create a style that is uniquely my own. I drawn inspiration from Bernie Wrightson, Alphonse Mucha, the older black and white Dungeons and Dragons illustrations, and even Japanese Manga. I recently finished a Huge contract job for Cobalt Pulsar Games called "There's a Game in This Book". My work can be seen at: www.inkbaum.com. I am currently dealing with a condition that only allows me to work for a couple hours at a time before giving me debilitating headaches. Because of this I am also looking for work that is very flexible in the time that I work. I still WANT to work several hours in a day, just not all in one go. The jobs I am most interested in are ones that will utilize my tech skills and knowledge, my game design, illustration, web design background, and will let me use them in small to medium sized contract work that allows for flexibility. While I admittedly prefer illustration work, as that's where my passion lies, I am still a professional and will do any and all work to the best of my abilities and full dedication. I have worked several years in many techincial jobs. I have certifications in the full Microsoft suite of office tools, certifications in network and ip configurations, windows configuration and deployment, and years of help desk experience across all windows platforms and macs, and an experienced user in remote desktop work. My going rate is more for my illustration work and I am more than willing to negotiate. If I have applied for the job you have posted then more than likely I am perfectly fine with the pay rate you have posted on it.

    Max Prodaniuk

    iOS UI/UX designer

    Ukraine - Tests: 11 - Portfolio: 29

    iOS 8 UI/UX designer, iPhone, iPad User Interface and User Experience Pro Main specialisations – UI (User Interface) and UX (User Experience) for iOS 8 and iOS 9 iPhone and iPad mobile apps. I LOVE creating apps, I love minimalism, I love clean and flat look of IOS9, So definitely I am a professional to hire for creating UI (PM, wireframes, prototyping and design) UX and GUI for iOS 9 applications. Max Prodaniuk is a user interface / user experience graphic designer with a keen understanding of iOS 8 and 9 UI interface guidelines and modern mobile app design and development trends. He can work on your mobile application and tell you how to optimise it for better conversions or create the content that you are looking for, whether you need wireframes developed, interface created, or design sketched. Max is the type of guy you can easily get engrossed in conversation with on Skype. Here’s a list of the services he offers: Market trend research, to discover existing apps and general issues they have to find out what points you should stress to make your app sellable and profitable. Choosing the best features for your iOS 8 app from your list of ideas, and shortlisting them to create several strong marketing points to develop. After developing and filtering the app or game idea, the initial wireframe creation follows. This includes creating wireframes for all of the screens, starting with splash screen and ending with the deepest screens of the app that user can get to. Creating ideas for icon and general feel of the app start on this stage. Creating a working prototype via Briefs app (Balsamique is an option) that you can install on your iOS 8 device – iPhone or iPad, and actually test it, with all the buttons working, and with all the relations between screens established. On this stage the discussions of the prototype with the client is vital, that's why it's really important to have team Skype conferences, to clarify all the blind spots. Creating several sketches, with different design themes and interface elements. After these sketches are done the client is to choose one theme to be used in the app. Then a programmer creates a working prototype of the iOS 7 application, and the initial designs are implemented. The QA team is testing the app while the next phase is going on. The design theme is applied to all the screens of the app or the game, and the final design is finally visualised. The design is polished – pixel to pixel it is getting finalised to obtain that clean nice flat iOS8 look that everyone loves so much. But this step is not the last one. The next step is slicing, and this is an extremely important phase of creating the application or game. Providing PSD to programmer is not the best option, as programmers do not know how to slice the designs and preserve all the details of the design. They do not know how to compress image to optimise the size of the application or game. So the designer is the one who has to slice the design and provide the ready PNG files to programmer. Alternative – Paint Code (Paintcode app) with Interface Builder. So to sum up – who is Max? He's a swiss knife. Yes, that's right. He's a unique, professional universal designing tool, that you can use to get your job done. His highest value is not his proficiency with Photoshop or Illustator – you can teach a monkey to use Photosop. His highest value is his passion, the way he treats every project, the unique way he THINKS and creates. 10 years of experience. MA Design and Architecture degrees, 3 years as a lead designer with 5 inferiors in Ukraine's biggest design agency. Over 20 brand identities around the globe, a dozen of User Interfaces for iOS applications, designed #1 sellable game app for Nook Tablet (Android). My priority is iOS UI UX GUI jobs. I would like to participate in creating Android wireframes. I would also love to start designing games for iOS and Android again. I also provide services of consultant. This includes: Telling those clients who want to create an application for iOS 8 (iPhone 4, Iphone 4s, iphone 5, iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, Ipad 1, iPad 2, ipad 3, iPad 4, Ipad 5 gen, iPad Mini, iPad Air, so basically all the modern iOS devices with our without retina display) but do not know how to do it, or want to do it for a first time what should the steps of creating a mobile iOS app be. I will explain everything about iOS devices, retina displays, design trends, etc. I explain to the clients what is UI (user interface) UX (user experience) GUI (graphic user interface) wireframes, how the app should react to user, and how to make app user-friendly. I will explain some of the most important UI guidelines provided by Apple. Pro with: Adobe graphic design – Ai (Adobe Illustrator) PS (adobe Photoshop) Id (Adobe indesign).
