Cover Letter

     An innovative, detail oriented computer artist and graphic designer, where my skills and drive to get the job done can be effectively utilized for increased efficiency, creativity, and excellence in final production. I am equally capable of working independently or in a team environment while adhering to strict time schedules.
     Since graduating college I have been actively seeking freelance jobs and working on the side in order to gain valuable experience in the use of Adobe CS3 for website design, logo creation, graphic design as well as website info population and website maintenance. These projects have become the basis for my online portfolio and ultimately the experience to help drive me into the fast paced industry of full time graphic design. An outdoors and sports enthusiast, my eye for photography has carried over into my graphic design work with close attention to composition
and focus on color theory.
     I am a very dedicated worker who is willing to expend the time and energy necessary to get the job done. I am striving to join an exciting and enjoyable team with a company that promotes skill building and career growth. I look forward to speaking with you soon.

Sincerely,
Jared Cosgrove
