Art Director Cover Letter Samples

Dear Mr. Calfee

I am submitting my resume in response to your recent ad for an Art Director at Eshel and Gris Advertising. I am certain that after reviewing my qualifications you will want to meet in person to discuss this exciting opportunity. With a Bachelor of Science in Visual Communications and 15 years in advertising I would bring additional professionalism and creativity to your already successful agency.

In my current position as Art Director at J&R Communications I am part of a team that was awarded Best Print Ad of the Year by the Cleveland Society of Communicating Arts. I supervise and work with staff photographers artists and graphic designers to develop the overall style of advertising campaigns including television commercials. After discussions with clients to develop the best approach and style to suit the product I develop budgets and timelines coordinate creative department activities and present preliminary designs for approval.

In my early career I worked as Art Director at Pennington Publishing where I was responsible for the page layout of catalogues and magazines. With experience in print television and the visual aspects of website design I come with a wealth of experience.

I look forward to meeting you to discuss this opportunity further. I can make myself available based on your schedule and I look forward to your call. Thank you for your time and consideration.
