Editor, Transcriptionist

United States - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 4

I have worked as a freelance writing consultant since my years as an undergraduate, spending my senior year of undergraduate education working as an official tutor in my university's Center for Academic Success. I specialized in copy-editing, believing that no job was too small. I found working with non-English speakers to be especially rewarding, as I was able to explain grammar, syntax, and idiomatic expressions while viewing their progress over time! After graduating in 2013, I studied Philosophy of Art in Liverpool, England. I worked reading, editing, and checking citations in multiple styles for Master's students. I have experience editing undergraduate and master's theses in the fields of Anthropology, Art History, Business, and Communications.

Graphic Design // Illustration

Philippines - Last active: 16 hours ago - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 18

Design is my forte! I've received degrees in both Graphic Design and Painting, so I've got a good grasp on conveying concepts and ideas visually. I’ve been using the Adobe Creative Suite (among other tools of the trade) for years. I create marketing/branding materials (brand identity, user interfaces, logos, ads, packaging, brochures, presentations, press kits, social media graphics, even basic web design – you name it!) and deliver them print-ready or web-optimized. I also love making illustrations using both traditional and digital media. Being a native English speaker, I'm keen on writing and proofreading. I also have a knack for research and have a bit of social media management experience under my belt, too. I'm very easy to collaborate with and meticulous. I am always looking to create my best work yet, and dislike mediocrity. Check out my Skills List and Portfolio to see what I can do! ☺
