PROFESSIONAL Motion Graphics Artist Skills: > Kinetic Typography > Motion Graphics > Template Customization > Logo Intros / Stings / Banners > 10+ years of experience > 100% Fluent in English (written and spoken) > Available for skype (calls and chat) > I work FAST, really, really fast :) I am a professional Designer, Photographer and Motion Graphics Artist with over 10 years of experience. I currently live in Argentina, but I went to School in the US (Muskingum University) and I have been working for clients abroad since 2009 I am very well organized, professional and serious about each project. I do not do this as a hobby, I respect my client’s time and money and I want to make sure they leave with the best possible quality I can provide, and a smile on their faces. Each client's satisfaction is directly tied to my satisfaction, because my reputation and my portfolio are a result of their happiness, so I work hard to make them happy. I have often been called a “life saver” by many of my clients (see my reviews ) because I work fast and I like to solve problems. I am usually the one they call when a designer or animator disappeared on them and they need a job completed fast, with great quality. NOTE: I have several long-term clients that I work for outside of odesk, this is why my activity on here may seem low at times. The reason is that not everything I do is through odesk, but I am active all year long (even when I'm on vacation!). I work fast and I focus on detail, providing regular updates of progress to make sure my clients are a part of the process and always know which direction we are moving on. Working together is the route to success, decisions and choices are made for one reason: Better results. I encourage my clients to give me feedback, both good and bad, and I enjoy learning with each project. I am perfectly fluent in English (written and spoken) and I am almost always available on skype. I have installed it in my phone so clients can call me at any time if they need me. Communication is one of the most important things for a project to work and I am aware of that. If I have applied to your project, I have done so because I am positive that I have something to add, and that I can offer what you are looking for.
