l [ Dear Ms. Georgis:

I am applying for the graphic design assistant position with msu University Outreach and Engagement. The description posted online for this position parallels my interests and qualifications quite well. I am interested in this position because I have a great interest in presenting information in new, fresh, and unique ways that engage and educate those who read it, and I also am excited to pick up new skills along the way. With my background in graphic design and visual communication, I am confident that I would make a successful designer at msu University Outreach and Engagement. Currently, I am the Vice President of the Society for News Design and a member of aiga here at msu, where I am able to share my design ideas with other graphic designers as well as help to shape the future of visual communication. Additionally, I interned at Bryan Christie Design over this past summer, working under the direction of the award-winning artist Bryan Christie to create elegant information graphics and 3d illustrations that were published in various major magazines. This experience, combined with absorbing a myriad of art forms, advice, and ideas around me, has taught me to constantly explore visual communication and challenge the conventions of traditional forms of media in order to keep my audience engaged and educated. I feel that working with msu University Outreach and Engagement will provide me with the opportunity to exercise this mentality, which is something I am very excited to be able to do. I would appreciate the opportunity to make a contribution to msu University Outreach and Engagement and to the msu community by exploring the business of visual communication through working as a graphic design assistant. I welcome the opportunity to meet with you to further discuss my candidacy and will call sometime soon to see if we might arrange some time to speak. Thank you for your time and consideration.

l [ Respectfully Yours,

l [ Matthew Bambach
