I believe that my education gave me not only the strong background in art but also the knowledge and understanding of design techniques and technologies. I studied graphic design, design animation, software packages like Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, Flash, 3D Max and Corel Draw I also learnt how to carry out a successful research for achieving the final goal. My interests are in combined design, art, media and cultural studies and fashion. I gained from my education a strong background needed to be successful artist, graphic or stage designer and a costumer. I believe I possess the necessary imagination needed for finding the best possible solution on any problem. My professional profile covers art-design, applied arts, multi-media design. Along with my degree I obtained a strong professional background. I have one year experience as a Design Illustrator for children`s book, experience which helped me to develop my imagination and the eye for details. I prepared 100 paintings for client presentation, which provided me with the understanding of what was needed to succeed in long term project. As a result of this project now I know how to achieve the main goal, without getting carried away by the minor details, required in a given piece of work and at the same time to have everything ready by the agreed deadline. I also have one year experience as a Graphic Designer in a Press studio. I was responsible for graphic design materials preparation for client presentation. I was working on design of notebooks, calendars, and goods packages. On this position I improved my skills in the software packages like Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign. In that time I was working on projects on demand. I have experience as a Costumer in a short film project called “Identity Crisis” which improved my organisation skills. I was responsible for storing, managing and maintaining of all the costumes that were needed for this project. I was also responsible for coming up with ideas about the costumes and the set design, if there was anything needed. All projects I have been involved in improved my team working, communicational and organizational skills and if it was necessary my leadership skills. I learnt how to overcome hard times but keep my motivation high for getting final goal achieved. I hope that my professional and personal characteristics will be suitable for this Position.

My name is Hannah Madsen. I am a 6th-year English and Comparative double-major at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada. I have extensive experience writing essays and proofreading papers both for myself and others. I have studied German for six years and Norwegian for two, so I have a great knowledge of many intricacies of the English language because of translation work required in the studies of both languages. During the course of my university career, I have taken four poetry courses, three of which were at the senior level. I am incredibly adaptable and can write in almost any style if given a sample of that style beforehand, and am a very fast writer, able to write a 4,000-word research paper in less than four hours. All of these qualifications guarantee that I am an effective and efficient writer.
