Some online job application systems offer you the option to send your resume to a potential employer without including a cover letter. This practice could be considered a little misleading as it belies the importance of making a good first impression on a recruiter and a cover letter is the ideal way to grab their attention from the moment they set eyes on your application.
A carefully-written cover letter shows that you have put time and effort into your application, but that can feel like a big ask when you are trying to come up with the right words to set yourself apart from other applicants. There are a number of online resources to help you put your thoughts in order, and our graphic designer cover letter sample comes with plenty of advice and information to help you write a letter which will address the things that recruiters are looking for.
Dear Anna Brown,
Your listing for a graphic designer caught my eye as I have a real passion for creating logos which I believe would contribute to the branding packages that you offer your clients.
When I worked at Lots of Logos, I collaborated with your current web designer, Janice Arbuckle, on a number of successful projects. Our work redeveloping the website for Bathrooms Ahoy increased their turnover by 30 percent. The success of the new site impressed their parent company so much that they hired Lots of Logos to review and redesign the branding for all their subsidiaries which represented the largest contract that Lots of Logos had ever landed.
I have long been a fan of the work of All Brands, particularly the way you offer such a wide variety of branded materials and I see you are looking for a designer with experience of working across a range of media. I have an understanding of how design needs to be consistent across all content and am well-versed in designing emblems which can be used online, offline and on everything from business cards to bill boards.
Your work with Meta Logistics inspired me and encouraged me to take a course in spacing and fonts to refine my understanding of the how the text in a logo can contribute to the overall design. I have also gained a qualification in banner advertising which I believe would be of benefit to a number of your clients who use search engine and affiliate marketing to promote their brands.
I have an extensive portfolio which I would love to show you, and I have a number of client testimonials as well.
Thanks for your time,
