My name is Jordan Enaboifo and I am writing in regards to applying for the Graphic Design Internship. I have recently completed my MA in Graphic Design Communication at Chelsea College of Art and Design. I also have a BA in Interior Architecture from Oxford Brookes University. I believe that working in the design field is a fantastic opportunity to see, and engage in, design’s translation in the real world. In doing so, I hope to be able to further develop the personal style that I am creating. From a young age, art has been a passion of mine, painting and drawing specifically. Art lead me to the design field. I believe design is centred on making perception into an art form. Studying Interior Architecture has helped me, not only understand the spatial interior better but also appreciate the stories behind the spaces we surround ourselves with. Studying Graphic Design has helped me improve my Adobe skills and visual communication, as well as attention to detail. I feel the subtlety of detailing can truly aid the transformation of any art/ design based form, making it into a powerful moment. I would like a position that ideally affords the chance to immerse myself in truly acting as a bridge between the clients and the audience. As a designer, this is an essential area of growth in clear communication and storytelling, both of which are areas that I always aim to excel in. My ultimate goal is to pursue a career in Retail and Commercial Design because I feel it allows more space with client diversity and creative narratives using fresh and exhilarating ways. It is this challenge that draws me in. To me, design is all about the people and this role, in terms of relating to the public, will help me advance in creating links between the people and the narrative, as well as make them more aware of their essential function in the design process. The idea of crafting a story to open up space for conversation is so poetic and has garnered such a fascination for me in the field of Design. As a side note, I would like to say that I always ‘aim to see the world through the eyes of the consumer’ and try to create unique visual identities based on that information . During my MA, I got the chance to choose any topic to focus on with any medium. I chose personal empowerment and ended up projecting a video tutorial I made, featuring myself, for my final exhibition. Getting to have that level of freedom to explore and challenge myself as a designer helped instil a sense of bravery to think outside the box, in terms of ideas and methodology. It also made me experiment with ways of better framing my work through the audience’s eye whilst exploring the subject of identity. This is another quality that I can bring to the table to produce the best work possible. As a graduate who appreciates there is always room to expand and grow, I know I will be able to do so here because of your emphasis on narrative communication and expressing identity. I know that I can be an asset with my Graphic Design knowledge and Interior Architecture background as I am a bright, enthusiastic, motivated worker who thrives under pressure. It is part of what spurns my desire to become an innovative design professional who influences my chosen field in an individualistic and creative manner.
