Dear Prospective Client


I am particularly interested about getting an interview for Precision Graphics due to your prodigious work. Your work on Saladin’s Anatomy and Physiology textbook and the Essentials of Geology, is exactly the kind of projects I want to be apart of. The designs are crisp and clean with high quality graphics that show knowledge and a great amount of research behind them. I could definitely contribute to future projects like these.

Just coming out of Michigan State University, I am ready to jump into the medical illustration field. I have always been interested in science but after taking a graphic design class I decided to enter the field of medical illustration. I want to use my design skills to help communicate ideas and information on the complex human body.

I believe I would do well at your company because of my great work ethic and my intense desire to prove myself. I have creative problem-solving skills and I take and give critique well. I am a strong draftsman with a background in life studies and I am current on Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign. I have created logos, posters, brochures, and various other projects. On the other hand, I have also taken a myriad of science courses as in biology, human anatomy, comparative anatomy and so forth with a dissection lab as well. I graduated Michigan State University with a Bachelor of Arts and a concentration in graphic design along with a pre-med track.
