RE: Graphic Designer Position


To whom it may concern,

My name is Russell Etchen and I have been working as a freelance designer since January 2013. Previously I was the creative director for the art and design bookstore Domy. I read your posting for the Designer position on Indeed and I believe I possess the necessary skills and experience you are seeking and would make a valuable addition to your company.

As my resume indicates, I possess more than 14 years of experience in the Graphic Communication field. My professional history includes positions such as graphic designer at the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston as well as creative director at the Austin, Texas art and design bookstore, Domy.

Most recently, my responsibilities as a graphic designer at the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston match the qualifications you are seeking. As the designer, my responsibilities included active participation in creative brainstorming sessions and development of materials from sketch stage to final execution for print. I assisted in the successful completion of a major exhibition catalog for the contemporary artist Mark Flood. My supervisor also relied on my ability to edit photography, design title treatments, and copy edit.

I have included my resume for your review and I look forward to speaking with you further regarding your available position.


Sincerely,
Russell Etchen
