Portfolio: coroflot.com/dj_balogh

I am very interested in obtaining a position that stresses creativity. I have experience with both MAC/PC, the MS-Office Suite, and the Adobe Creative Suite CS5. My love for the Adobe creative software has enabled me to transform what would normally be a simple part-time desk job into a very enjoyable graphic design position. I am in charge of the advertising and graphic design at a local fitness facility. I have aided in their website design (alphafitnessclub.com), set up and designed apparel for their online store (alphafitness.spreadshirt.com) as well as setting up both their Facebook and Twitter pages. This work can be found under "Alpha Fitness" section of my portfolio.

I am also a graphic designer and contributing writer for the digital magazine Front Row Monthly (frontrowmonthly.com). This work can be found under the "Front Row Monthly" section of my portfolio. I own and operate a disc jockey service (djbaloghmusic.weebly.com), and have done all the advertising and graphic/web design work for that as well.

I have over 5 years of experience in graphic design, comprised of college, freelance, personal and professional work. I am an energetic and enthusiastic hard worker with the desire to learn new concepts and skills. I would be proud to have you utilize this energy. I am very interested in an interview to learn more about the job, while you to learn more about me. I am eager to learn and excited for this opportunity. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Sincerely,

Christopher Balogh
