MY PERSONAL VALUES
Faith • Integrity • Creativity • Family • Comedy
Dear Cameron, (or not Cameron...in that case, "To whom it may concern.")
Like RELEVANT Magazine, I pride myself in being able to maintain the tension between conviction, compassion and communication. What drew me to loving RELEVANT was its ability to switch between playful conversation and intentional dialogue. Life is too short not to have fun, but it is also too important not to discuss Christ and the implications He has on all of our lives. As a graphic designer, a dad of three young boys and a former youth pastor, I know the importance of this delicate balance. This same tension can be found in much of my graphic design; enticing design partnered with intentional purpose.
I have been a graphic designer for 7+ years. I am proficient in the Adobe Suite, especially Illustrator, InDesign and Photoshop. I run my own design studio on the central coast of California, Seta Design Studio. “Seta” is a short form version of “set apart”. My desire with every project is to bring attention to the beauty of design and creation and therefor our Creator. I have been called provocative on many occasions, not due to anything inappropriate, but rather my ability to provoke new thought and perspectives on familiar subjects, especially subjects relating to faith. I am excited to bring my years of experience and unique perspective to RELEVANT and prove my value and ability to provoke in thought and in graphic design.
Thank you for spending time reviewing my application. I deeply believe that my skills and qualifications make me an ideal candidate for the graphic design position at RELEVANT Magazine. I’m extremely motivated to join your team, and look forward to discussing my candidacy in an interview.
With a smiling heart,
Dillon Asher Jacobsma

MAJOR: Christian Ministry
MINOR: Biblical Studies
While attending Biola, I was also a Resident Assistant (RA) for two years. I started some dorm traditions that I am proud to say are still going on to this day.
At the risk of sounding arrogant, I am a fun person to hang out with! Which is odd because I am naturally quite introverted. Let's hang out & you can discover some more of my personality paradoxes!
