Hello! Please allow to introduce myself:
I am a motion designer based in Austin, TX looking to join a creative team in the innovative tech space.
(My portfolio isn't on Webflow yet, but I recognize the potential I'm missing out on and can't wait to build a more impressive presentation using your platform.)
Favorite part of my profession is: the people. Helping people achieve their goals is what keeps me going, even if it doesn't involve motion or design!
My 2nd favorite aspect is: learning from others. About their area of expertise, their perspective on the world and what their days look like.
My ideal collaboration would involve: a team that's learning and having fun together. I value constructive feedback, often prefer fast timelines, and receive fulfillment from supporting others.
Why am I so eager for an opportunity to work with Webflow?
I haven't worked with a company likes yours before, but have admired Webflow's growing reputation for a long time. It would be an honor and a big milestone to learn alongside those who make Webflow what it is.
What would Webflow get out of working with me?
Hard worker who's invested in her team's objectives and who might be able to make you laugh!
Two of my recently-favorite projects...
...give a good sense of the type of work I've been doing directly with clients.
SmartyPants' Internal Brand Video
Why I loved this project: Flexed my creative muscles and expanded on the brand's existing art.
Context: for an internal presentation by CEOs to corporate interests.
- Time (7 days!!!)
- Client wanted my fresh eyes on the creative direction
- Marrying human touch with technology with art direction
Outcome: Delivered on time and exceeded client's original expectations and hopes.
Teaser to Recreation.gov's redesign
Why I loved this project: same reasons as above* plus re-envisioning the tool's UI in a simplified form.
- Relatively short turn-around with the tool still in development and levels of approvals.
- Making the video fun for a family while also giving a comprehensive overview of the tool.
Outcome: Delivered on time and exceeded client's original expectations (yes, again!).
Things from the job posting that stand out to me:
✓ Have experience optimizing and iterating on process and automation
(Yes! I often take the time to plan for a system where implementing future changes has a responsive quality. For me, this usually takes the form of creating non-destructive set-ups in After Effects by linking properties with expressions or strategizing for a particular file management structure).
✓ Work closely with Brand Designers to develop consistent standards, templates, and processes
I like working so closely with people that I feel I'm being a support to them. And I'm big on processes! I'd rather spend extra time upfront if it saves me time later.
...And so much more. But you're probably tired of reading, so let's set up a meeting instead to properly say hello! :)
Thank you for your time!
