    Greetings and Salutations! Creative talent often wears many hats. I have tried, much like in all aspects of my life, to tackle more than just one type of career trajectory. I hope to bring that to the table to suit your visual and creative needs. Professionally, I have worked as a designer for 10+ years in the retail, nonprofit, and legal fields. Creative concepts, photoshop editing, illustrating both architecture and fantastical works, collateral, web elements (including retina-grade), posters, logos, branding, supervising photoshoots and delegating creative direction, I have so much to offer you. And, most recently, I've made a foray into children's illustration and book-writing! Peruse my portfolio at your earliest convenience and contact me with whatever needs you may have! I greatly look forward to hearing from you. -Elizabeth

    searching a job in translating or graphic design

    Netherlands - Last active: 10/23/2014 - Tests: 2

    I am still searching for my goal in life! I know which direction I'd like to go, which is the creative direction. But what I would like to do exactly, is still uncertain. In the meantime I want to gain experience in language and communication skills, so I can build my career path that way. Normally I use english on the internet to converse with my friends on social media, and with foreign friends when I meet them. But I have no experience literally translating. I'd love to gain some of this experience here! So please let me learn how to do this, as I see this as a big challenge that I would like to take head on!
