I’m Ashley Kolodziej. Nice to meet you.

Dear Ms. Waclawek:

231.631.2671 // // 2900 Northwind Dr., Apt. 517 East Lansing, MI 48823

My name is Ashley Kolodziej and I am interested in your design internship at the St. Petersburg Times. I am currently a junior at Michigan State University pursuing a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. My experience lies mainly within print design, although I have done some web related work and look forward to learning more about designing for an online medium. I have an interest in helping people communicate their ideas to the general public through the use of good design. A well-designed poster or advertisement communicates a concept quickly while being creative and unique enough to be remembered later on. The challenge in this is fascinating to me, and it is my goal to create things that are both practical for the client and memorable for the viewer. My previous experience with creating ad campaigns for The State News and its clients, as well as my passion for print design and communication, are a good fit for your internship. I hope to gain experience and explore those ideas while working with you. In return, I offer my skills with InDesign, Illustrator, and Photoshop as well as my previous experience in advertising design and page layout for The State News and White Pine Press. I also offer my passion for design. I will often continue to think about problems, coming up with different ideas and sketches between shifts. It’s the way I work. I love coming up with new concepts and solutions in my free time. Thank you for taking the time to look over my application, and I hope to hear from you soon.
