    Sally Milo - Creative Design - What you want, when you want. eBay

    United States - Last active: 14 days ago - Tests: 6 - Portfolio: 2

    Looking for a freelancer who's been doing freelance work for a long time? Who has the discipline & proven record of doing what is wanted, when it's wanted and will meet - or surpass - your requirements? Great! I can do that! If you're seeking someone to design graphics or illustrations for print or the web, I will design just what you are looking for. I've been cutting & pasting since the days that meant an Exacto knife and wax or rubber cement - and that experience has only added to my skills with creating on the computer. My main tools are Photoshop & Freehand (which I can save as Illustrator files). If your needs are for your website, I do my magic with HTML, CSS and a smattering of javascript. In addition to the graphics software I use, Dreamweaver is my tool of choice for web pages - something I didn't use until ong afterI learned how to code by hand. I won't waste your time by bidding on a job that's not up my alley. Since 1999, I've been an eBay seller & am a Certified eBay stores designer. In addition to designing eBay pages, I also design Constant Contact email templates and WordPress pages. I've been cranking out design for my eBay clients to aid them in having a unique presence. These clients have referred me to others as I've given them what they want, delivered when I said I would & communicated closely with them. I want to develop that relationship with you, my oDesk client.
