James Stack
Graphic Designer James Stack, Design, Media & Architecture
Dear WONO, My name is James Stack and I am writing to you in regard to applying for the ‘Logo Graphic Design – Fully Remote’ position advertised on Indeed.es and your company website on May 19th. I am a Digital Animation Production graduate who studied at the Limerick School of Art & Design (L.S.A.D) Clonmel Campus, who has a passion for graphic and motion design, video production, branding and marketing. Upon this, I’ve also recently obtained a Diploma in European Digital Marketing and Entrepreneurship from Capacity Ireland while working as a Graphic Design intern and 2D Animator for LAB, Seville. I wish to take this opportunity to apply for this remote position and continue my career within the graphic design industry as I will be returning to Seville this July. As previously stated, I’ve recently graduated from L.S.A.D with a Bachelor of Science (Honours), Second-Class, Upper Division Honours (2:1) degree in Digital Animation Production, with an Ordinary Bachelor of Science degree in Graphic Design. My course primarily focused on animation production, communication design and digital advertising, allowing me to be highly proficient in a variety of computer software on both MAC and PC. In relation to software suites, I am highly proficient with Adobe (primarily Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects, Premiere Pro, InDesign and Animate), Office 365, Toon Boom and Autodesk (Maya). I also have a basic understanding of HTML, CSS (Dreamweaver) and C# (Unity). I have an impressive collection of 2D animation, branding and design, which demonstrates my technical and conceptual abilities. My show reel(s) should reflect upon my artwork skillset and prove that I’m a talented and a highly creative individual, well capable of creating highly detailed graphic artworks for an in-house studio or remotely. While on Erasmus in Seville, I worked as a Graphic Design intern and 2D animator for LAB. Here, I focused on creating 2D motion graphic animations and designed labels and graphics for print materials, art exhibitions, companies, political parties and their websites using Adobe After Effects, Photoshop and Illustrator. Although LAB was a Spanish speaking studio environment, I took upon my own initiative to learn the Spanish language, allowing me to communicate with my co-workers and work together as a team. During college, I spent a summer working as a graphic designer and content creator for Lion Print, while also working for GameStop Ltd. During my experience, I assisted on creating large scale signage, brochure designs and 2D vectored graphics using Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign. I was also responsible for the printing and heat transferring these graphics onto garments using a die-cutter and a heat presser machine. I would later upload these designs to the company website and optimize them specifically for its target audience. During my spare time, I would also shadow other designers, observe how they dealt with their clientele and learn the importance of running a medium sized graphic company. I also hold two years’ experience in retail between working at IMC and GameStop Ltd. Working in fast-paced, information retaining environments such as IMC and GameStop has developed me into a highly motivated and authoritative worker with a strong understanding for branding and campaign marketing. My performance at GameStop was reflected using a KPI target system, which disciplined its employees into working as team players, as well as representatives of the company. This system has thought me to become more self-motivated and aware of multiple areas while working in a profession. Communicating with customers through face-to-face customer service has become very useful when helping clientele trying to understand their desires and assisting them with potential content solutions. From my experience working as a graphic designer, animator and content creator, I can personally state that all personnel should acquire strong communication and organisational skills and produce work efficiently to a high-quality standard. With over two years’ experience as content creator, I have developed a highly effective and efficient creative workflow, as well as excellent artistic skills and have learned the importance of working as an individual, but more importantly as a team player. I have been conditioned to follow intense work schedules and obey strict weekly quotas that are expected of me to produce. I see myself as a highly self-motivated and talented young artist who wants to further develop his skills. I am up-to-date in the latest of design and animation software and as a highly ambitious person, I take pride in working with integrity. If required, I’m willing to travel for the benefit of my employer and my company. I believe in delivering and promoting outstanding results as an individual, but more importantly as a team. I would be grateful for a chance to have an interview with you and hope that you afford me the opportunity to work for you. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank you for reading over my resume and viewing my portfolio. I look forward to hearing from you. Sincerely, James Stack
