    United States - Last active: 7 days ago - 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.

    Professional Motion Graphics Artist / High Quality Videos

    Argentina - Last active: 9 days ago - Tests: 6 - Portfolio: 1

    PROFESSIONAL Motion Graphics Artist Skills: > Kinetic Typography > Motion Graphics > Template Customization > Logo Intros / Stings / Banners > 10+ years of experience > 100% Fluent in English (written and spoken) > Available for skype (calls and chat) > I work FAST, really, really fast :) I am a professional Designer, Photographer and Motion Graphics Artist with over 10 years of experience. I currently live in Argentina, but I went to School in the US (Muskingum University) and I have been working for clients abroad since 2009 I am very well organized, professional and serious about each project. I do not do this as a hobby, I respect my client’s time and money and I want to make sure they leave with the best possible quality I can provide, and a smile on their faces. Each client's satisfaction is directly tied to my satisfaction, because my reputation and my portfolio are a result of their happiness, so I work hard to make them happy. I have often been called a “life saver” by many of my clients (see my reviews ) because I work fast and I like to solve problems. I am usually the one they call when a designer or animator disappeared on them and they need a job completed fast, with great quality. NOTE: I have several long-term clients that I work for outside of odesk, this is why my activity on here may seem low at times. The reason is that not everything I do is through odesk, but I am active all year long (even when I'm on vacation!). I work fast and I focus on detail, providing regular updates of progress to make sure my clients are a part of the process and always know which direction we are moving on. Working together is the route to success, decisions and choices are made for one reason: Better results. I encourage my clients to give me feedback, both good and bad, and I enjoy learning with each project. I am perfectly fluent in English (written and spoken) and I am almost always available on skype. I have installed it in my phone so clients can call me at any time if they need me. Communication is one of the most important things for a project to work and I am aware of that. If I have applied to your project, I have done so because I am positive that I have something to add, and that I can offer what you are looking for.
