Proofreading

Proofreading

As a graphic designer, proofreading is the critical, final step I take with every project before it's presented to the client. A careless typo seriously affects how a design is perceived and can make the difference between approval and rejection, no matter how beautiful and effective the graphics may be. I'm available for proofreading and editing of all things written.

Very Good at InDesign
