I am a dedicated designer (web & graphic), teacher and father to two great kids who prides himself in having three of the most rewarding jobs ever.
I design websites and create compelling vector graphics, logos and related stationery. I am also a blogger and article writer in English. I translate from English and French into Arabic. I am a also an amateur photographer, and I have recently co-authored a book for children. I am patient, resourceful, creative and above all a lifelong learner.
Tarak, my contest winner, must be some sort of mind reader because his very first home page design mockup was amazing, excellent, exactly what I wanted, and was so good, I could give it straight to a website designer and say, "Make it this way." Tarak totally 'nailed' it! Then he went on to submit many more versions, one even better than the next. This guy really knows what he's doing. He is a friendly and personable 5 star communicator and leaves nothing to question. He had good suggestions and was always ready and willing to make any changes I desired, even post-contest (after he'd already been paid). He was devoted to making me happy from beginning to end. As an employer I could not have asked for more. I hope it is I who is up to par and that Tarak will let me hire him again and will agree to do more work for me. I could say much more but I'll leave you with this - If you've come across Tarak, you've discovered a gem!
Tarak is one of the freelancers that everybody would like to work with. Hard working, cares for the employers business. Understands fast, reacts fast. He tries to understand what you need and does his homework perfectly.
More important than all, he is a genuine honest person. There are some people that deserves every single penny that he earns. Tarak is one of them. Well what can I say more, just hire him, watch him working for you and you'll agree with me.. I will certainly hire him once again...
As always, Tarak continues to completely exceed my expectations. Not only is he a talented graphic designer and amazing web designer, he's a great writer and his knowledge of Wordpress and his dedication to finding solutions to problems is truly remarkable. If he can't find a plugin to do what I've asked him to do, he builds it himself. Honestly - I've never come across such a determined, dedicated and passionate Freelancer. I'd hire him full-time if I could.
On a more personal note - he's a great guy, funny and easy to chat with. I haven't hired another freelancer to help me with any website work since I found Tarak. He's definitely a keeper.
Working with Tarak has been one of the best business decisions I've ever made. He's like an extension of my business now. He is dedicated and loyal (not to mention patient and kind). He is an incredibly talented designer and a wordpress expert, developing an entire site and a plug-in I didn't even know I needed! He's with me on Skype into the wee hours of the morning, and he makes himself available whenever I need him. I will continue to hire him for all my projects.
I am the graphic designer for a magazine for EFL teachers and I also submit vector art and photography works to istockphoto.com (name:silvelrlens), dreamstime.com(foto_jem) and shutterstock.com (tamirak).
