Hello, Creative Market
I’m excited to apply for your Design Curator position!
As an experienced designer, I’d love to be a part of your Design Team to ensure the quality of products and engage with your community of artists. There’s a world of talent and creativity out there and Creative Market is bringing amazing people together. I’d really like to be a part of that.
I’ve been using your services for 5 years now. I know your user. I am your user! That’s why I’m confident I can do this job well and be the next member of the Creative Market family.
Empowering creatives. Turn passion into opportunity. Yeah, I'm in!
I have extensive experience in design, production and concept development. I’ve been employed as a Graphic Designer for over 10 years working on print and online media campaigns. I’m a focused self-starter who always meets deadlines and am passionate about my work. I work well within a team and know that communication is crucial. I take direction well and can apply feedback quickly.
As you’ll see in my portfolio below, I have worked for a variety of companies, large and small, and started my own company, Harken Press, creating bridal stationery and letterpress products. I’m looking to make a change and know that I can apply my skills to benefit Creative Market users.
If you give me the opportunity to speak with you on the phone, I can prove what an asset I can be to the Design Team to improve and grow Creative Market.
I appreciate your time and hope to hear from you soon.
My Unique Advantages:
Widely varied experience. I’ve been a graphic designer at… an international magazine // a small design agency // a software company // a web and marketing agency // an online spa and beauty brand // my own stationery company // freelanced with several start-ups
I’ve worked remotely from my home office for 6 years.
I’m a letterpress printer. I restored my 1956 Heidelberg press that weighs over 3,000 lbs. I lovingly call it “The Beast”.
My family. I want my two daughters to see their Mom enjoying her work, being driven, continually learning and improving, and having a badass career. “I’m not a regular Mom, I’m a cool Mom.”
Working in the stationery industry has helped me to identify design trends early on and apply them to products. See more in my Shop.
I know the value of creating. If I didn’t have an outlet to make things, I might go a little crazy.
Facts about me:
In 5th grade I was in a regional TV commercial. My husband loves to show all our friends the really embarrassing video.
I was born in New Jersey, grew up in Louisiana, lived in California for 8 years, and just moved to Texas. Howdy y’all!
I love any kind of dress-up theme party, singing duets with my husband (we both sound absolutely terrible), and painting with my toddler.
I read this job listing and immediately told my husband that I found my new job!
