COVER LETTER
DON VANDERLOO
Web Developer. Web Designer. Graphic Designer.
To Whom It May Concern:

Please accept my résumé for a position with your company. I am currently employed by Raley’s Family of Fine Stores in West Sacramento working at the corporate headquarters as a Web/UI/UX Designer for raleys.com, nobhill.com and foodsource.net. I previously worked as a Graphic Designer for The Sacramento Bee.

I hold a Bachelor of the Arts Degree in Art Studio from The California State University at Chico. Pursuant to my final degree, I successfully completed three academic years of study as a Communications Major with an emphasis in Graphic Design. I transferred to the University from Sierra Community College in Rocklin where I was a two-time honor roll student, an achievement that I would duplicate twice more at university level. Other academic accomplishments include: two semesters as teacher’s assistant for the Department of Physical Education, two semesters as an academic tutor for the Business Department and contributing artist and writer for the school newspaper.

I specialize in PHP/MySQL driven, interactive, responsive design sites with heavy emphasis on search engine optimization. The web authoring programs that I work with regularly include: Dreamweaver, BBEdit and Flash. I use Adobe Premiere as well as an assortment of video compression applications for video production and editing. Desktop publishing and illustration programs that I work with include: InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator. I work on both a Macintosh and a PC, and am therefore comfortable with either platform.

I am formally trained in HTML, Flash, Web Design, PHP, CSS, jQuery and MySQL, and am self-taught in video production, editing and compression for web, CD and DVD. I use CMS daily to manipulate and upload content at my current job.

I have excellent knowledge and understanding of digital and conventional prepress. My portfolio exemplifies my skills in layout, web development, web design, graphic design and illustration reflective of my tenure with Raley’s, four years with The Sacramento Bee and many years as a freelance designer and programmer.

I have always maintained an exemplary rapport with employers and fellow employees which I can substantiate with multiple letters of recommendation. I am sure that the qualities that I have to offer would greatly benefit your company, and I hope that you will contact me so that we may discuss them in person.

Thank you,
Don Vanderloo
