Ok lets answer that burning question of yours... Why should you hire me over any other Odesk designer? Aside from the fact that I'm a qualified designer with 6 years experience under my belt (large corporate agencies through to freelancing), I can provide you with swift and accurate turn around in a friendly, professional manner – afterall communication is key with any successful job right? I specialise in logo design and branding as well as front end web design right through to jazzing up that generic looking Powerpoint/Word document you could be about to present to your client. Want to know more? Check out some examples of my work below.
