Dear Mr. Moore,

It is with great enthusiasm that I saw the opening for a product designer at KNACK Studio, a position which perfectly matches my experience, skills and career ambitions.

Your company's culture is all about outstanding, innovative design, and I admire your vision. The projects of your studio are setting standards in the industry (I particularly loved the MOQ project) and I would love to work for your company. Who wouldn’t? 

I’ve built my career on one simple principle: Work smarter. I’m the person who looks for inefficient procedures and transform problems into challenging projects through critical thinking, creativity and innovativeness. 

My technical knowledge, conceptual and design skills, combined with my enthusiasm and creativity make me an asset to the KNACK Studio team. Moreover, my international experience and global mindfulness would be a positive contribution to your organization. 

I am thrilled at the possibility of being part of KNACK Studio team  and would love the opportunity to meet with you and discuss the value that I can bring to the organization.

Thank you for your time and consideration in reviewing my materials. I look forward to hearing the good news from you.


Sincerely,

APOLLO BACKPACK
© Nicholas Baker

The Apollo is an experiment backpack inspired by NASA’s lunar lander. The mid section is composed of gold mylar, the shiny substance used on the lunar lander to insulate it. The top and bottom of the backpack is composed of tyvek, a paper-like, plastic fabric that is durable and mimics the dark material of the lander. I also used trapunto to create a geometric structure on the bag as well as quilting for comfort on the back and straps.

ESKER STOOL
© Nicholas Baker

The Esker stool is a sculpted piece of nature that is a unique record of the region in which it was created, Lacoste, France. This cedar stool was a collaboration between Nicholas Baker and Madison Heim. The lower section of the stool is a tree stump uncovered in the forest that was de-barked, sanded and leveled. The interior was hollowed out creating a small nook to store objects. The felt lid was quilted and free motion embroidered with lines that emulate the natural grain of the log.

WOODEN TOY
© Donghyun Kim

“Don’t worry about the baddys” is a series of toys for kidults*. The inspiration of this design was from the idea of how heavy equipment creates a construction but at the same time destructs the environment. This derived the motivation to design a toy and an illustration. kidults* = ((An adult who participates in youth culture and activities traditionally intended for children))
