    Graphic Designer - Printing Specialist

    United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 22

    Creative, Experienced, Real World Graphic Design, Typography and Copywriting. Have you ever hired a graphic designer, only to have them come up with something so elaborate that you couldn't afford to print it? That is because they didn't understand the printing process or the capabilities and limitations of the equipment that you planned to produce it on. That is where I come in. I have spent my career in graphic design and possess a strong printing background. Don't get me wrong, I love to design the tricked out invitation or presentation with foil and embossing and spot varnishes and die cutting and gluing and lots of pantone and metallic inks - only problem, it is not in most budgets. Graphic design is about ideas, but it is also about details. I like to think that I am good at both. The greatest idea can fall flat if it is not properly executed - typography, spelling, use of photography, consistent branding... all are important to a successful project. As a designer, I had to learn that not every job is a masterpiece, that time is money and clients need to work within deadlines and cost constraints. So I learned to take my ego out of the job and adapt to customer needs. The first step in every job is to determine what it is that you need and then to create a compelling design that fits your parameters. I have spent many years in the advertising and printing fields. Both of these businesses gave me the opportunity to work with people in all types of industries - from small business to huge corporations, retail to manufacturing, service businesses to restaurants, tradesmen to professionals - I have designed for them all. So what are you looking for? Brochures, Flyers, Catalogs, Magazines, Books, Letterheads, Envelopes, Business Cards, Business Forms, Menus, Table Tents, Advertisements, Invitations, Door Knob Hangers, Packaging, Labels, Presentations, Annual Reports, Logo Design, Corporate Identity Packages - if it ends up as ink on paper I have done it and would be happy to create something for you - on time and on budget.

    High End Photo Retoucher, Photoshop Expert

    Bulgaria - Last active: 6 days ago - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 18

    'If you think it's expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur.' - Red Adair I am expirienced high- end photo retoucher, one of the best here in oDesk. I have worked for major Bulgarian companies. I am offering only the very best retouching service and quality. Although a lot of contractors would be tempted to hire cheaper freelancer to do the job, there are some major differences which I would like to point out - First, and foremost, when you are trying to promote your brand, the first thing your clients are going to see are your photos. Think of online stores (clothes, products, technology), billboards (again..), magazines, flyers, brochures, look-books, etc, etc. The first thing that catches your client's eyes is the photo. The photo is the representation of your product and brand. The client doesnt usually see the effort put into making the product, or the time spent on it, or how much technical skill is put into it. He sees only an image of a final product- which is just like all other products he sees daily. If the photo is cheaply done (for example: plastic face, colors which are ok, but not enhanced to "catch the eye", misused techniques, etc) it will represent your brand as cheap. Here is a fast example with a swimwear. Both photos are retouched. The first one is retouch with porcelain skin effect, badly retouched, bad shadows and highlight and bad photo manipulation - you can very clearly see the girl is fakely put into the background. This is cheap work, and make your brand looks cheap. This is what you are usually getting for cheap retouch. Second is professional retouch. 1) http://oi61.tinypic.com/10x5vlz.jpg (bad retouch) 2) http://oi62.tinypic.com/1197yo4.jpg These extra few dollars spent into retouching to hire a professional, will actually bring you a lot more money. Retouching is investment in your brand and your product. -I am familiar with human anatomy, which is essential in retouching. There are incredible amount of retouchers, who doesnt give attention to that, which results in "photoshop fails", even for big companies like Target and Victoria secret. Do you think your average 5$/h knows anatomy? - I am good in color correction. I know how to change and alter colors , so your photo catches the eye. Speaking of colors, here are some examples. - I am speaking English. You would be surprised how many people here have their profiles and cover letters written for them. It looks alright, until you hire the person and start talking with him about the project- then it turns out, he doesnt quite do what you want, because he can't really understand you. - I am creative, and I can give that extra- something your photo needs to reach the next level. - I am hardworking, reliable, and I always keep deadlines.
