Ok So I started my ” I Can Design” project for Kristine, and then I found out she is leaving Chronicle. So that was a wash, BUT she passed my info to Sara Gillingham who will be taking over her position. I met with Sara last Friday and I will be starting to do a fellowship with Chronicle. It not a lot of hours, twice a week Thurs & Fridays from 3-6pm, but at least it’s a foot in the door!!!! I am super excited. (and so glad I have a really cool boss that is ok with me leaving early to do this.) WhooHooo!! Not what I was originally hoping for but just as good.
Here is what I plan do this this week to show Kristine that I can design, and more importantly that I can design well!: below are some more of my drawings and notes:
So I spent all weekend trying to get my site updated. Whew! That was a ton of work and I am still not fully finished but I uploaded it and pused it out on the web. So now I have more design work on the web. If nothing comes out of this at least it got me to update my site, which I have been meaning to do for a while anyway.
Below is my reply to Kristine. Hopefully she will take a look at the link and like what she sees. I am also still working doing a little dummy book to showcase more of my design skills. My fingers are crossed. Hopefully this will win her over and prove that I can do the job.
I just wanted to say thank you for considering me for the position. I appreciate that you passed my resume on to Sara Gillinghan and hope to have the opportunity to work with her soon. When we talked last Tuesday you made me realize that I really did not have enough design work on my site to showcase my abilities. I have since started updating that section of my site and have added quite a bit. Though I am not fully finished with the update, I think that what I have added will give you a better sense of my design skills.
