Hello Joanne,

I am a Creative Designer with 15 years of extensive experience in Web,
Multimedia and Print design. I have an all round experience in visual
communication and use various technologies in designing and building
websites, rich interactive multimedia and executing better print designs,
quickly.

My specialties are Interactive Design and Design Management. I have worked
with HTML, CSS, Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Flash, XML (to name a few)
on both MACs and PCs.

I am good at working where time-bound deliverables are the norm. I think
client¹s needs, the concept¹s goal, user friendly and functional design are
responsible to create an all round design meant for its purpose. I also am a
good listener and this makes me a person who welcomes criticism, an
essential ingredient to the evolution of design.

I have attached my resume for your perusal. Also, to view a sample of my
work, please check http://www.coroflot.com/Sachyn

Do let me know if I would be an eligible candidate.

Awaiting your response.

Regards,
Sachin Ghodke
