    Sr. Graphic Designer & Illustrator

    United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 6 - Portfolio: 22

    I have 30+ years of proven experience both as an artist and a designer. Highly versed in the Adobe Design Suite, I have designed for both conventional (offset) and ondemand (digital) printing, developing and producing direct mail pieces, magazine ads, sales presentation collateral, product packaging and/or labels, large format displays, silkscreen printing, as well as custom diecut items. I am also highly skilled in photo editing/retouching and creating technical illustrations. Successfully branding new or existing companies through logo design, logo redesigns (or creative facelifts) stationery packages and banner ads and website design takes precise expertise and years of experience, both of which I have as well. I have been a freelancer for most of my career and have effectively interfaced with highly successful people on many levels: corporate, non-profit, small business, entreprenuers, publishing, and marketing both in B2B and B2C! I like to take the "mystery" out of designing and will take time to explain the process to you so you can be as involved as much or as little you would like to be. Let's see what we can create together!

    Writer

    I love writing. Writing and rewriting are my pleasure. I'm looking for opportunities to write, edit, proof, and generally perfect your documents or communications. Proper grammar and spelling are keys to my writing success. If you are not a native speaker of American English, I can help you sound like one. Three specialties of mine are 1) making your documents objective by removing subjective or first person terminology, 2) ghost writing to make your communication sound just like you, and 3) assuring your communication is clearly understood by your target audience(s). If you need a writer for internal items like policies and procedures, business and strategic plans, training curricula, and intranet content, I can help! I would also like to work for you if you need a writer for customer facing documents like marketing pieces, business correspondence / email, and presentations or web content. In addition, I can write, edit or correct dialogue so that your speeches, advertisements or scripts sound natural and confident. Give me a try! I look forward to easing your mind about what you say.
