COVER LETTER: Thank you for considering me and I look forward to working with you. Sincerely, Matthew Oddy OBJECTIVE: To always improve myself by finding creative solutions in any given situation. I will maintain high level of competitive and creative thinking, which will propel me forward in my career. PERSONAL QUALITIES and SKILLS I have natural abilities in design and skills that set the stage for me for later education in design-related endeavors. * I have a proven eye for detail and a natural talent for design. * I have the abilities to work quickly and neatly. * I have creative skills as an artist that can bring out forms of emotions and concepts in an original way. * I believe it is important to have an adaptable knowledge of computers and computer-controlled equipment. So that I can achieve a complete understanding of my limitations, and the process in which things are done so that I may work accordingly. * I work very wells with others and take pride in the fact I am part of a team. * I like to carry over my creativity to all aspects of my life, and I am easily inspired to be creative. * I prefer to work hands-on and visually. I find that there is less room for miscommunication that way, which happens easily when dealing with designs or art related projects. I am currently designing for a promotional company. We design and source a large majority of Anheuser Busch's and McKenzies's Hard Cider's promotional items such as t-shirts signs point of sales displays and various other giveaway items. I understand the proofing pricing engineering and manufacturing process that has to takes place when designing a quality product. I am experienced with Photoshop Adobe Illustrator Flexi Composer and Corel Draw. I also have experience with plotters large and small format printers such as the Roland SC-540 Flatbed printers such as the Solara UV2 the Edge vinyl printing and cutting system and some experience with screen printing. I am also familiar with both PC and Mac operating systems.
