Graphic Designer Cover Letter Example
« on: December 24, 2011, 11:47:56 PM »


If you are applying for a graphic design job then make sure that your covering letter is good enough to make a difference for you. Most CVs would get lost in between other hundreds of applications so make an effort and write something good.

There are many relevant HND or degree level qualifications that a graphic designer would benefit from so make sure that you include reference to any that you have in graphic design, fine art, film or television, visual art, 3D design, communication design or illustration. Any higher qualifications should also be mentioned as this is a competitive field and you will need to stand out from the crowd. Any relevant work experience should also be mentioned, whether as a graphic designer specifically or in a related job.

A graphic designer will also need good communication, presentation, networking and time management skills with an attention to detail and being open to feedback and willing to make appropriate changes. Obviously drawing and technical skills are also required. Demonstrating an ability to do this in the covering letter is important. The layout of the letter is critical because this will demonstrate your design ability and it could even be more important than the actual content. Therefore make sure there are no spelling or grammatical errors and the spacing is correct. Making it unusual with a creative touch is a risky approach so you will need to decide whether to take a gamble or not.

Yes, most CVs get lost in the hundreds and thousands of them that companies receive. A lot of employers find it very tiresome to flick through CVs and letters for hours, so it's definitely worth putting in some effort to make yours stand out.


Things such as good grammar, proper headings, the right length and the right content will all make yours more obvious and easy to read.
