SO Skye ODell - Skills, Experience, Resume

MY SKILLS AND ABILITIES, YOUR BUSINESS (WIN/WIN).

Diverse, hands-on graphics, design, web services consultant with skills and abilities developing engaging materials for advertisement campaigns, marketing efforts, courseware design, website development, and interactive training programs. Proven success in motivating, coaching and leading technical design teams to achieve results while focusing on promotional themes, corporate imaging, product branding, and training objectives. Consistently recognized for completing projects on time and within budget restraints.

This isn’t the whole story (obviously) but my little introduction to – well me, Skye.  I would love to talk to you in person, or if geography or your timeline makes that impossible, emails, phone calls or Skype will work JUST as well!  The idea behind my consulting is that I want to make your life easier.  I have worked for years to hone these skills. But the best part is that I enjoy what I do, a LOT.  Lucky that way!

Abilities.

01. DIGITAL.

A great percentage of business is internet-based. The programming has gotten complicated on one hand, and sublimely easy on the other – Your customers want the most advanced look and feel with the minimum of effort. I can help!

02. DESIGN.

Being able to show designs to a client is sometimes as simple as taking their idea and running with it.  However being able to show more than one, with diversity being the key, gives you an edge that a single design is unable to do.

03. MAINTENANCE.

There are a lot of sites that you maintain. Let me help! I can do it for a fraction of the time and money and help you keep everyone current.

CUSTOMERS ALWAYS COMES FIRST.

I can help you develop complete interactive websites for you or your clients, including marketing strategies, new graphics/designs, and corporate/product imaging enhancements. I am able to establish project definition and work closely with your customers during initial needs assessments, building consensus’ using visual prototypes, and analyze competitor strategies for improved responses. My skills include (but are not limited to) the creation of website enhancements utilizing HTML. CSS, and PHP as well as fixing problems on existing sites.

As a Freelancer I can represent you and your company as a part of the team, without you having to hire an actual employee.

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU MAKE A DIFFERENCE

I was having problems with my web page and was frustrated with the people I had hired to fix my problems. After one conversation with Skye the problem was solved! I can’t recommend her highly enough! A+ rating!”

Sarah Freeman
Writer/Blogger Airy Melody Music and ABA therapist.

“Skye has not only the finest work ethic but also the most collegial personality. She is professional to a fault in delivering what she promises and a delight to team up with on projects, in particular those with tight time-frames.

Skye’s flexibility and exceptional problem-solving ability enables results that fit the objectives while finding less-cost alternatives. In the industry, this can be a rare combination to find. She will work extremely hard to find solutions that fit requirements.

I would give Skye my highest recommendation, having collaborated on multiple projects with her.”

BROCK HOTALING
Sr. VP of Solutions at Verbi, Inc

“Skye is a detail-oriented manager who watches the balance sheet like a hawk without losing sight of the strategic objective.

OK, so that part above was actually already there, but it WORKS! Skye was a great manager who was always on top of every project we had going on. Even if she wasn’t directly managing a project, you could count on her for answers.

Her technical expertise got me out of MANY jams. If she didn’t know about something (which was rare), you could almost guarantee she’d learn about it very quickly and get you an answer PRONTO.

At the root of all this is her amazing creativity. She is one of the few that have successfully combined the technical and the artistic in such a way that she’s a one-woman-show when it comes to delivering a “final package”.”
