I seek employment at your facility, I’m very flexible with the position, but I have a passion for cooking and food and would love to bring that passion and energy into the kitchen and raise the standards of quality, speed and excellence.
To whom it may concern,
My goal is to seek employment as a Visual Designer for your company and become a key member of your organization. I am employed at Redding Countertops, Redding CA, creating and prepping art for t shirt and hats, I also have been doing freelance design for the last 9 years consistently. 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 Graphic Design, 3D Design and photography. my primary graphical weapons are Photoshop, Illustrator and Blender (for 3D). Aside from my abilities in design, my greatest strength is my vision, my ability to see a problem and find inventive approaches to manage them, this is the corner stone of my ability to lead and manage people and projects, not only am I well equipped to work with people I am also a self starter. In recent years I have been lending 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.
A good example of recent employment, I was employed at 15dollarstore.com (now defunct) where I was in-charge of photographing, color correcting and prepping images of an array of merchandise for their website and triweekly e-mail campaign. In this role I have applied my understanding of work-flow, organization, and automation to reduce the man hours from 40 hours a week to 16, while not only completing all responsibilities, but drastically increasing over-all quality.
