Full time Design Marketing

Personal Summary

Dear whom it may concern,

I am writing in response to your advertisement, why I think I would be ideal for the role and make an excellent addition to the team.

Firstly, I have industry experience working in a small marketing team, designing and marketing for 4 major big companies including the world’s best prosthetic hand and a 5 star boutique hotel in central Leeds.

The tasks I undertake are creating content for social media, content for the websites and print work including brochures. In contrast my artwork is used for events, mail chimps (e-shots) and creating flipping books which is then put onto the websites. I had control over social media, I planned the posts in advance, as it gives me time to work on another project. In addition, I undertook admin work which includes using the phones and talking to clients or companies and reports.

In terms of marketing as a team you know what the vision is and our goals so our strategy is to fulfill that, for social media we come up with the marketing strategies but working closely with the CEO and so far we have hit and exceeded our targets.Before we put our strategy into practice, I carried out marketing research to ensure the strategies will work and any new mobile and social media strategies and updates in the apps e.g. live videos, videos in cover photos etc. I have pretty much covered it all and this is why I believe I would make a perfect addition to the team with the experience and knowledge I have which is what you are looking for in a employee but also others in the team can learn from my experience while I learn from them.

I have freshly graduated from York St John University in Design: Graphics in 2017 and would like to make the best use of the skills developed during my university study. I have a keen interest in Graphic Designing. In addition, I have also a small Graphic Design/Photography/Marketing business, to be able to use my skills too in the local community.

Over the past few years, I have become highly proficient in Adobe CS Suite on both Mac OSX and Windows. I am able to work under pressure to tight deadlines and ensure the work is produced at the highest level- and while juggling full-time study. In particular, I have extensive experience designing advertisements, marketing campaigns, posters, brand identify, t-shirt designs(fashion), leaflets, vehicle graphics, sign making and much more...

As you can see from my resume that I undertook a BTEC course in Travel & Tourism at college. I have a passion for tourism aswell as design/marketing. I have always wanted to combine the two together and I believe this role is my dream/perfect role to do just that.

I enjoy working in a creative team and have the ability to communicate with managers and colleagues alike as my referees can confirm.

As such, I believe I can make a significant contribution to your team. I would love to bring my complete portfolio to show you my work in an Interview and look forward to the opportunity to do so. I look forward to meeting you in person.

Kind Regards,
