Greetings, my name is Tiffany. Lowery, and I am interested in the job opening you have available. I have worked in the food industry and retail for a few years and based on what I've learned is how to sell while welcoming customers as if they are part of the family. I am aware of the importance of punctuality and customer friendliness while on the job. I also know that when it comes to selling items to customers, I can succeed when promoting and motivating for a sale. I am also known to have a very welcoming voice, similar to those who do book recordings and announcments in stores. This will become an advantage for telemarketing as well as anything for selling. I look forward to contacting you and will gladly include a resume with references upon request. Thank you for reviewing my resume and have a great day. Sincerely, Tiffany.Lowery.

WHO First and foremost, I am a creative designer. Yet, I do not practice “creative for creative’s” sake. My work is always the meaningful end product of a carefully thought out marketing strategy. I do not immediately assume the solution to a client’s problem. Great creative power can only be the result of great marketing discipline. I have an enviable track record of staying within budget by estimating accurately and controlling costs at every step of the production process. Work does not begin until a client approves and signs estimates. WHAT I believe in developing a communications plan, an umbrella that covers the entire spectrum of the marketing mix. True insight into your needs can only be developed by evaluating the whole picture. I believe in looking at your communications expenditures as an investment, one that should work hard at giving you a return. I take a very prudent approach with your money. Every conceivable step is taken to ensure you get the very most out of every communications dollar you spend. I believe in big ideas. HOW Everything I do is designed to contribute to our client’s success. First I do my homework. The legal profession likes to refer to this as “due diligence.” I educate myself at my expense, not yours. I know how to study. And quickly. No matter how educated I become about your company, I will never tell you how to run your business. My job is to promote your business. I continually look at myself as your creative partner who not only shares in your problems, but also in your visions.

PROFESSIONAL PROFILE I am a graphic designer and creative professional with almost 20 years of experience in graphic design and publishing. I am accomplished in all aspects of print design. I pride myself on being a results-oriented problem solver with flexibility, enthusiasm and the ability to consistently meet deadlines. I am able to work alone, in a team or lead a group. I work following a few simple principles of design; 1. Form follows function. I believe a design problem will ultimately solve itself. 2. Keep it simple.
