    Michael responded quickly, communicated well, and clearly, and completed the project on time. I would highly recommend him.<br/>

    Project Description:Hi Michael, I need someone to re-size a passport photo for me to fit strict guidelines from Canada immigration. I don&#039;t want to spend more than $20 on it, and I suspect it will only take someone who knows what they&#039;re doing a few minutes...

    I've hired Michael a couple of times now and would do so in a heartbeat. He's versatile and very responsive as well as upfront about his skills and availability.

    Project Description:Eight photos need a background clipped out and the white outline (halo) removed from the portraits (so just magic wand + delete won&#039;t cut it).

    I've used Michael before for a contest and he is professional and an amazing designer. I would have no hesitation in hiring him again; he is detail oriented, timely and efficient!

    Project Description:(Please do not bid on this project unless you have been invited to do so) 1) The President&#039;s Message will be page 1 after the cover and will end up being 2 pages. There will be a full length photo needed...

    Fantastic designer. I can't wait to work with him again. I have to say he initiated a lot of conversation, had pertinent questions and wanted feedback - something that was very appealing. He followed the instructions very well and understood a detailed brief. Thank you! Definitely want to hire this freelancer again when I need more layout.

    Contest Brief:Please read through the entire description and check out my feedback. I often award more than one winner, but once I find a few I like, I close down the contest. If you do more than one design that I like, yes, I will awarded it to you twice, one for each design. This is JUST LAYOUT - there will be no content, no editing - this is for a financial institution. There are three sections - Document Details, Graphic Details and The Spreads - please read them all as they contain a lot of details on exactly what I need! Feel free to leave a message here with any questions about the details of the document or the graphics. I reply to almost every entry, so check back often. Please look at the attached other examples of financial institution's reports. These do not reflect the layout I necessarily want, but will give you an idea about how others present theirs. What I need - Document Details: - This will be an InDesign document with no content, just layout. Page 1 will be 8x11 and then onwards will be facing 8x11 pages. This must be an InDesign document. - The bleed will be: 0.0625 in constrained to all - It will need page numbers at the bottom and a place for the name of the institutions at the bottom or the top or the sides (just one of those places) - CYMK needs to be standard for all graphics and colors - One or two sans serif and serif fonts (so a total of 2 - 4) must be used and included in the final package for the contest - The two color schemes are added as files to this contest - you may use other colors in addition, but you must use one of these schemes. - All styles must be loaded into the document and notes given about the styles. - The color swatches must be loaded into the document - The fonts must be included with the final contest documents - The final InDesign document + fonts + any graphics + any notes must be included if the contest has been awarded to you What I need - Graphic Details: - The two color schemes are added as files to this contest - you may use other colors in addition, but you must use one of these schemes - This will be a typography-heavy annual report - so it will include some graphics of people, but large blocks of color on the left side page are fine with picture/words. Words to use are things like: service, accessibility, responsiveness, support, vision, stewardship, partnership, stakeholder, integrity, stability, common good - synonyms can also be used. If you believe a picture would be useful as well, please just put a graphic box where you would like it or use a shutterstock image. - The theme must reflect strength, success, boldness and prosperity - This does NOT have to be super fancy, just a neat, clean and a good impression. Conservative styling would be better than anything super-modern. What I need - The Spreads - #1: 8x11 single first page - this will just be a letter from the president - must be able to include 1 photo of a person standing - #2: 8x11 facing page spread - this will be an introduction to a bunch of graphs and charts about the company and how well it is progressing. This will be 2-3 pages of the same template (or if you have an idea about how to make a nice continuous spread, that would be wonderful) - please note that large graphs and blocks of text will need to be on these pages. There will need to be places for at least 2 photos of people standing. - #3: 8x11 facing page spread - this will be an introduction to a financial institution's services and product line. There will need to be places for at least 2 photos of people standing. - #4: 8x11 facing page spread - this will be a "looking forward" to what the financial institution would be doing in the future. There will need to be places for at least 2 photos of people standing. - #5: 8x11 single last page - this will be an employee listing EDIT Suggestions: For each template the left side page have color/typography (some pics), left side be with content (I would expand each section later)
