I am new to elance but not online freelance sites. I have been on Guru for 2 years and have 100% rating (Profile ID: 746890). I do not use "be a designer" programs or rely on the software to do the work. I am an authentic graphic artist / designer with a Bachelor's Degree in Visual Design. I started my career sketching, creating concept boards and mechanicals. I've worked in design studios and Ad Agencies. I know all aspects of Design from Concept to Print. All final work produced is Original. I have a fully-equipped studio with latest equipment, peripherals and software. I am also an artist/painter and this is why I left my career as a Creative Director in advertising to have more time for my painting.
I have created projects in almost all areas of design, from concept to completion. Brochures, Catalog, Print Ad, Direct Mail, Logo Identity, Corporate Collateral, Web Page Design, PowerPoint, CD/DVD and book covers, Annual Report, Newspaper Design, Broadcast, Video & Radio, Concept Boards, Package Design, Concept Presentation, Promotional Campaigns, POP/In-store Merchandising and Signage Systems, On-site Event Design, New Product Launch and Focus Groups, Postcards, Invitations, Outdoor Signs/Billboards, Copywriting, Copyediting, Online Portfolios, Digital Albums,Photo-manipulation/editing, Illustration... I've done just about everything except a Wine Label!
