Cover Letter

To whom it may concern,

My goal is to be employed as a 3D Designer for your company and become a key member of your organization. I have a very broad spectrum of skills considering I’ve been designing for over 25 years, and always seek to learn more, but I specialize in 3D Design, Graphic Design and photography. my primary graphical weapons are Blender (for 3D) Photoshop and Illustrator. Aside from my abilities in 3D design, I also have experience in sculpture, fabrication, and mechanics which complement my 3D design and my ability to understand material, mechanisms and process’s. my greatest strength is my vision, my ability to see a problem and find inventive approaches to solve and manage them, this is the corner stone of my ability manage large scale projects. In recent years I have been lend my skills to Eagles Nest Intl., a local ministry on a part time basis building and managing their website as well as others, mostly in the WordPress CMS using the Divi builder and theme, designing book covers and expanding my skills the 3D design, which is a tremendous complement to my skill set.

In the past I have worked for Semper Eadem a real estate co., that remodels houses where I would take a list of hardware, appliances and amenities and render them to scale in 3D and integrate them into a 3D model of the home, which would aid the visualization of the products that they liked, but would test their fitment and also was a excellent tool for the construction of the home.

I have also used my skills in rendering for graphical applications in designing ads, book covers and web design.

With my experience, knowledge, abilities, and skill, I am very confident that I am well qualified and will be an appreciated asset to your company and your projects. I would appreciate the opportunity to meet with you to discuss how my experience would be consistent with your needs.

 

Sincerely,

David A. Stoddard
