Ability to take a client's vision and turn it into an actual website
Dear [employer name],
I'm writing to you today to apply for the Web Design position. My name is [your name] and I have been working as a web designer for the past 5 years. I have designed websites for many different types of clients, including small businesses and large corporations.
I am familiar with all aspects of web design, from the planning phase through to implementation. In fact, it's probably fair to say that my biggest strength is the ability to take a client's vision and turn it into an actual website—and do so within their budget constraints.
In addition to my skills in web design, I also have excellent communication skills. This means that if your team needs help explaining technical concepts to clients or other stakeholders, then I can step in and take over those responsibilities. This is another way that I can add value to your company as well as improve customer satisfaction.
I am currently available Mondays through Fridays from 8am-5pm CST. However, if there are times when you need someone onsite during these hours then please let me know and we can work out an alternative schedule that fits both of our needs better!
If you are interested in learning more about my experience or availability, feel free to reach out!
Experience in web design and front-end development with a strong work ethic
My name is [your name], and I'm applying for the Remote Web Design position. I'm a designer with four years of experience in web design and front-end development. My most recent project was a redesign of a local business's website, and it was a huge success! The owner saw an increase in sales of 40% and said he "couldn't be happier" with the results.
I have a strong work ethic, and I like to get things done quickly. I'm also flexible about working hours, as long as we can find a schedule that works for both of us.
I have been using [software name] for over two years, so I'm very familiar with it. It's an excellent program for creating websites from scratch or modifying existing ones. It's also easy to use, which makes it easy for me to work with clients who are unfamiliar with coding languages like HTML or CSS.
I would love to hear more about your company's goals for this position—and how you see your role fitting into those goals—in order to determine if this is the right fit for me!
I am available to start immediately, so please let me know if you're interested in learning more about me!

Small businesses, nonprofits, and educational institutions
Hi [recipient name],
I've been working as a web designer for six years, and I'm looking for a new challenge. I'm passionate about making complex processes simple, and I love working with clients to make their websites user-friendly, elegant, and engaging.
My work experience spans several industries—I've built websites for small businesses, nonprofits, and educational institutions—and my skills include WordPress CMS, HTML5/CSS3, Bootstrap 4 and LESS/SASS frameworks, PHP/MySQL database management systems, jQuery/jQuery Mobile frameworks, Google Analytics integration, third-party API integration (e.g., MailChimp), and more.
I'm looking for a position that would allow me to use these skills in a collaborative environment where I can learn from other designers' experiences while continuing to grow professionally. My ideal role would be one where I could work remotely while also having the flexibility of attending meetings in person occasionally when needed.
Please let me know if you have any questions or would like me to elaborate on anything!
