Elbot Carman

Graphic Designer, Illustrator, Brand Developer

United States - Portfolio: 21

My name is Elbot (pronounced just as it’s spelled). I developed an interest in Graphic Design and Illustration in my youth, and went on to dabble in it as a teenager. I later went on to pursue a college education in concern to both. I currently hold a BA in Digital Art (Minor in Information Technology) from the University of Alaska Fairbanks, and an MFA in Media Design from Full Sail University. I've worked for several different companies and clients in the past few years across the country. I carry a great passion for graphic design and illustration. My “artistic influences” include Naota Oshima (Character designer responsible for Sonic the Hedgehog and NiGHTS into Dreams), Bill Watterson (Calvin and Hobbes), Seth MacFarlane (Family Guy and American Dad), and Yoshitaka Amano (The original character artist for Final Fantasy, now famous for his silkscreen prints). My design influences mostly revolve around being raised by a mechanical engineer (my father).

Douglas Williams

Editor/Proofreader/ePub designer/Writer

United States - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 12

You seek to establish your authority, share expertise and help people improve their lives -- using print and digital platforms. I'll get you there, with a focused, refined product that positions you as the go-to source. Finely crafted things require precision instruments. I'm one of them. My specialty is editing, from concept development, to narrative framing, to word choice, voice and flow, to final proofing and production. I help writers build texts that grab, hold and satisfy readers, then assist in getting it all published in print and digital form. My attention to detail is keen, as is my respect for an author's voice, intent and strategy. I can help improve all of that, but know it is yours, not mine, and my role is to amend where necessary, not override. If rewrite is needed, my hand is deft, but always attuned to your style and character. In design and format work, I employ crisp, clean, modern layouts that usher a reader through the narrative without clutter that distracts, then detracts from the message. Illustration, data and sidebars are placed for emphasis or to ease the way to full understanding. As Shakespeare said: "The play's the thing!" I'll help you get yours to the stage, then into the hearts and minds of the folks who pay our bills.

Providing compelling Designs and Illustrations

United States - Portfolio: 20

I've always had a passion for all things art/design. Over the years I have developed a very eclectic body of work consisting of but not limited to: illustration, concept art for gaming, logos, t-shirt/sticker designs, brochures, and web pages. I currently teach web/graphic design at a US accredited school on the Central Coast of California. Although I love teaching I am a freelancer at heart. I am constantly refining my crafts and learning new techniques in order to better myself and the work I produce. In addition I am well versed in industry standard software but I'm just as at home with traditional mediums as well. I look forward to working with those who not only intend to grow professionally but share my passion for quality art and design. Cheers all.
