    Hi. I’m Marc. I’m a fine artist, illustrator and graphic designer. I’m also a bass player, cyclist, actor and director. And I’m a husband and father. I have a bit of an identity crisis. But I can make pretty pictures. And I can make ugly pictures prettily. And I can design your logo, your brochure or website. I’m looking for full time, contract and freelance work at this time. I relocated from outside Chicago to Anderson, SC in August of 2012. I welcome the opportunity to collaborate with you in person or virtually.

    Graphic Designer and Artist/Illustrator

    Canada - Last active: 06/18/2014 - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 4

    At 33 years old, I've been a multidisciplinary visual artist for over 18 years and a Graphic designer since 2010, as well as Tattooist since 2008 or so. As an artist and very creative individual, I have worked and experienced many medias over time in my paintings, illustrations and other artistic endeavors; the same can be said for my Design career, in which I have focused on developing myself as a generalist as much as possible, able to work on many platforms and types of projects from Web to Print, but generally: - I work with Adobe Creative suite CS to CS5 - I design web with Dreamweaver, but have some working understanding of code and regularly work with that side of the program - I use flash for animations, websites and website modules (when it is appropriate or requested) - Have great knowledge of the Microsoft Office suites My clientele likes the originality of my work and tend to want more artistic results that do not compromise the message and intent; they notice the thinking that went into all aspects of the said work, as well as the way it was conceived technically; they are grateful for the way I coordinate and deliver everything in a professional and organized way, never missing a deadline. I also have a lengthy customer service and sales experience in my past careers, contributing to my marketing and sales abilities in a big way when designing, as I fully understand what any given clientele is generally looking for and how to present it, as well as a keen understanding of what the customer is communicating about their project, what their ideas and expectations are from the project in a deep and conscientious way. However, I think that my experience as a team leader of a team of 50 or so employees in a call center, at which I was also the primary training officer in charge of writing most training material in two language and involved in most projects in one way or another; makes my candidature advantageous, as it brought me strong project management skills, people oriented management skills and helped me further refine my abilities to juggle deadlines and multiple different types of projects with facility, as well as deal with heavy stress loads and deadlines. I do look forward to working with you, Jean-Michel Desmeules

    Experienced Illustrator with advertising background

    United States - Last active: 07/30/2014 - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 2

    I am a traditional illustrator and writer with one strong differentiator from other creative types - I am also an accomplished advertising media executive with deep experience in consumer product launch. This affords me the ability to work on things ranging from children's book illustrations to visually impactful pitch decks. My writing style is malleable; I exercise brevity for decks and lean more whimsical and flowery for creative works and poetry. Having spent my career in advertising, I am accustomed to project management and tight deadlines.
