Junior Graphics Designer for PowerPoint Graphics Creation

“Dirk was an incredible asset. After a few days of getting into a routine, I could communicate with Dirk as I would a colleague in my office- Quick, concise email or phone instructions and Dirk would run with the ball and a short time later, produce nearly flawless presentation documents. Generally the changes were required due to small changes in approach. Dirk took document reviews and change guidance seriously and cranked out flawless documents with no more than one review period. He was flexible, self-starting diligent, totally reliable and personally a pleasure to work with. I'm hiring him again immediately for a second project.”
