Web elements: Need a fresh web 2.0 icon (or call-to-action, button, masthead or tailored image) to communicate to customers and potential cutsomers your message, that will inspire a greater interest. Let me find a creative answer to target the specific audience and keep the message current. See some of my work samples to see how my contribution and positive, capable, can-do attitude can help create ideas when needed and the actual implementation.
Organisation: Let me demonstrate my reliability and time-management. As well as advanced skills in required design programs - with good balance of HTML; Flash; photoshop retouching; illustrator vectored work; Indesign; Acrobat; Powerpoint. I've used multiple CRM / RTM platforms and can help you update any materials needed for these. In the past I've created countless social media and blog images for PR and marketing purposes. For HTML code I prefer to use all best practices - smaller image use relative to text, yet imaginative enough to have impact, use of ascii codes an alt tags.
PPC: (pay-per-click) images for Facebook concepts / designs, final size is just 110x80 pixels. Now playing an increasing role in social media marketing. If resources are limited I can select images from Royalty Free libraries, montage and retouch where needed.
Interactive pdfs: Need a simple Pdf prepared for your website with links, or even a more involved interactive multi page pdfs. Let me prepare some options for you.
Building trust and communicating with internet wary audiences: Graphics help potential customers feel more secure about using brands (with many having fears of outright scams/deception; many consumers are hesitant to purchase items over the internet due to security concerns/new 'cookie' policies/information sharing/fear of data attacks and leaks).
Banners: Not just static leaderboards; Mpus; Skyscrapers but also animated gifs or animated Flash Banners, see my samples. Past work includes pixel sizes to 300 x 250 (Mpu); 728 x 90 (Leaderboard); 160 x 600 (Wide Skyscraper) and even small Buttons at 120 x 60. Plus optimised for best file sizes.
