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.

Translator

Italy - Last active: 08/27/2014 - Tests: 7

I am a 25-year-old student, Law being my field of specialization. Even though my chosen subject requires its learner to focus on a somewhat narrow range of skills and vocabulary, I have always had a knack for roaming a wide, kaleidoscopic array of passions; hence, I have often found myself translating science articles, clothing stores websites, software and IT reviews, videogames, and so on. I love learning - and I love words, in that they embody the pivotal vehicle to access almost any kind of knowledge.
