    2D Animator, Illustrator, Motion Graphics Designer, 3D Generalist

    United States - Last active: 17 days ago - Tests: 1

    I have been using the Adobe Creative and Production suites since I was in High School, so I am coming up on having nearly 8 years of experience using Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, and Adobe Premiere. Within the last two years I have picked up After Effects, and due to my skills and expertise in previous Adobe products, it was a smooth transition with no learning curves. I believe I know After Effects just as well as the other programs that I use. I specialize in 2D Illustration and Animation, I have the ability to create characters, props, and scenery, animate walk cycles, lip syncing, and facial movements, as well as simulate parallax scrolling. I mainly use Illustrator, Photoshop, and After Effects for these. In 3D, I use Maya, and I have been using Maya for the past 3 years. I have the ability to model, rig, and animate the human body, create textures in Photoshop for use in Maya, as well as model any other types of objects needed. I have a bit of experience using nHair as well. I will be earning my Bachelor of Art degree from The College of New Jersey's Interactive Multi Media program with minors in Digital Art and Japanese in May 2015. I have also studied Japanese extensively during a two month trip studying in Tokyo. I am also available for translation work or dual-language motion graphics and animation work. I am registering to take the Japanese Language Proficiency Test this December at the N2 level.

    UI/UX Designer / Graphic Designer / Illustrator

    Brazil - Last active: 27 days ago

    www.carlospx.com I’ve been working with UI design for the last 4 years across several projects and on different design agencies. I’m a graphic design graduated on a tradicional and well-know Brazilian university — keen on making beautiful graphic project as sharp pixel-perfect interfaces. But pixel-perfect is often not enough… I have graduated studies on UX, I can help creating amazing human-computer interaction. I’ve been successful in applying information architecture, taxonomy, and making efficient wireframes. Although my love for graphic and UI/UX I consider myself just a “designer”. I have been delivering brand identity, brochure, poster, book covers, gorgeous presentations, t-shirts, as web interfaces, social media layout, wireframes, mobile UI and responsive layout. I’m motivated to always learn more. While I’m not working, I’m illustrating, making some icons, or brewing the perfect cup of coffee. If you are looking for someone with experience working closely with diferents process of design, and ready to work fast and make beautiful projects, and good design. I’m your man.
