    United States - Last active: 12/29/2014 - Tests: 6 - Portfolio: 2

    I have been a technical artist for most of my life. My main interests are murals, canvases, logo designs, drawings, layouts, and digital illustration. I am currently pursuing an Associates Degree in Graphic Design. I am proficient in Paintshop Pro, Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign. I also dabble in 3d Studio Max, and can do basic 3D modeling and animation. I use Dreamweaver for website layouts as well. There is no artistic challenge that I will not attempt, as being an artist is always an ever-expanding learning experience. I believe that I am a creative and talented artist, and believe in charging fairly for quality work.

    EVERYTHING DESIGN To continue using all available tools to provide everything design with nothing being impossible. Creating new methods using Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign and 3D Studio Max to name a few, and applying them to present original and effective, visually pleasing designs. I want to remove the copycats from the world of design... Unfortunately, most people just do what they think will pass as standard instead of having the guts and creativity to be innovative. I ventured on my own, my start-up Ali Creative Central, to show off 8 years of creativity and technical know-how. I believe that what I have started, is a new way of approaching design, a way that delivers impressive results in a fraction of the time it would otherwise take. No job is complete until I have 100% customer satisfaction. No design is good enough, only perfect. I'm not satisfied excelling in just one field of work, that is why I take on any project, whether it be translation, data entry, or miscellaneous tasks and research. Love me, Pay me, Don't ever leave me...
