Regarding: Freelance Designer

Dear Company,

Please consider me for the designer with the passion and skills to develop

your packaging and other graphic design projects into creations that stand

out in a crowded field. I don't create cookie-cutter graphics. If you want

to be noticed, let me help you push the limits.

My background includes over 15 years as an independent designer producing

packaging, brochures, posters, promotion and catalogs. I have produced

results that have increased sales and awareness for top consumer products

and services including Rockefeller Center, Yoshinoya, Herbalife, Noxzema,

Old Spice, PIMCO, Mattel and many, many more. Why have all these companies

used my services for so long? Because they appreciate creativity,

reliability, my attention to detail and my ability to complete projects on-

time and on-budget.

Thank you for taking a moment to become more familiar with my capabilities.

I would be happy to speak with you at your convenience. Please call me at

310-***-**** or email me at

Best regards,

Mike Armijo
