    Animator + Graphic Designer + Illustrator

    United States - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 7

    I have spent the past several years honing my skills as a freelance graphic designer, illustrator and animator. Through this process I have developed my work ethic as well as my skill set. Having the opportunity to work with a plethora of companies has taught me how to adhere to strict and timely deadlines, as well as adapt my personal artistic style, and mode of communication to fit the needs of diverse clients. I have created promotional products, animations, packaging, brand concepts, and illustrations just to name a few tasks. I have received consistent positive feedback, and in return I receive back-to-back projects and work on many assignments at any given time. I feel extremely comfortable brainstorming with clients to grasp their complete vision, as well as juggling the projects that I am required to complete. I have the ability to take a clients vision and turn it into a tangible, useable product, or design. This ability and the positive feedback I receive make my job rewarding on a daily basis.

    China - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 11

    I have been most fortunate to be a teaching the English language to learners around the world, for over 5 years. I completed my TESOL certification to show my credibility in the field but long before it, I have been noted to excel in using the language. For more than 2 years, I have been writing for a monthly newspaper that's based in Alberta, Canada. As the paper's assistant editor-in-chief, I have proofread and written not only news articles but contents required in the advertising of the paper and even web contents of projects related to it. Also in the paper, I've developed my skills in layouting by use of Adobe In Design and Photoshop. For the longest of years, I have showcased my public speaking and communication skills on several occasions and platforms. I've done some hosting & private occasions, done VOs at mall events, and jobs online. Apart from my experience in showcasing my skills, for a period of time in the past, I have conducted classes on both at institutes.

    Creative Writer

    United States - Tests: 6

    I'm a junior in college studying to go into the writing and publishing industry. I can edit and proofread on a professional level, though grammar is my weakest skill. I've been writing on and off since the 3rd grade and when it comes to creative writing I'm at an advanced level. I'm able to craft efficient, easy to read paragraphs with well developed and complex characters. I write many different genres, but mostly kid stories. I write a lot of Minecraft, but I also write other children's stories as well. Romance is another of my most written subjects. I can, however, write any subject or genre. Other things I write include reviews, articles, and product descriptions. Aside from writing, I also do data entry and voice acting.

  9. Sayaka T.

    A receptionist at a hostel in Tokyo

    New Zealand - Tests: 10

    I would like to work on projects such as Japanese-English translation, writing critiques/reviews of films with illustration, and art projects that allow me to express myself. I have NO previous experiences in translation and it is because I have never been given the opportunity before. I believe the problem with translation industry is that you always need to submit your previous works and prove how many projects you have done. If you are never given a chance, you cannot prove to the world what you are capable of. I was born in Japan and raised in Japan, but I chose to go to the US and Australia in highschool so I struggled through cultural experiences and became a bilingual. I have always put myself in customer service jobs because I truly enjoy face to face communication. I have been a server, a receptionist, and an English instructor. One of the aspects that fascinates me and motivates me is finding out needs and demands of the customers/clients and providing them services that exceed their expectation. Although I have thoroughly enjoyed my prevoius work experiences, I would like to keep challenging myself in new fields. I would like to start working online as a translator and an English tutor. I am very responsible and hard working. My weakness is that I sometimes push myself too hard and sacrifice hours to reach for perfection and to get my own satisfaction. I am willing to learn. I look forward to working with other highly skilled and talented individuals.
