Attn: Elizoebeth Jensen
Dear Ms. Jensen,
The Newsletter Graphic Design listing (HireMyMom.com) looks like an exciting opportunity to contribute and utilize a combination my marketing, branding and editorial skills from 10+ years of design experience.
My specialty is focused in graphic design for non-profits and small businesses. I enjoyed viewing your website to get a feel of your jewelry line and overall feel of Elizoebeth Jensen Jewelry.
Experience with producing marketing materials, copy writing and branding:
I started and currently run the graphics department (as part time staff 2 days/week) at St. Philip Presbyterian Church. My primary role is managing design deadlines and maintaining communication with the staff, volunteers and vendors. I produce event literature, advertising and announcements (including newsletters, copy writing, brochures and special events). I was also hired to re-brand them 3 years ago (creating their new website: http://saintphilip.net, signage and event announcements). It’s been fascinating to get to know them and see how their created brand has grown over the years. I have also assisted companies (already having a brand in place) that just needed to be consistently carried out with their new and ongoing design tasks.
My prior design experience with retail includes branding and social media for a beauty supply/wholesale company – 21st Century Labs (work samples can be viewed here: https://goo.gl/photos/sSTRU5VZ8jHPjfGB9).
I have my own laptop with the full Adobe Suite and flexible with being able to work onsite (and meetings) but also have the flexibility of working remotely. I work in a shared office space (Wednesdays through Fridays — the days I’m not at St.Philip).
MAC / PC: Adobe Design Suite/Creative Cloud – InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator and Dreamweaver. Microsoft Office: Word, Outlook, PowerPoint and Excel.
