    Thanks everyone for your input! It seems that cover letter are still invaluable to the hiring process from your comments. Recently ive seen a lot of employers (typically large design agencies, consultancies, or product companies) not even have a space to add a cover letter, especially when applying online rather then through email (specifically design fields: Ui, Visual, ect.) I found it rather curious, and was wondering if there may have been some new logic that had recently been accepted when hiring new talent.

      It's good to see that the responses here helped you with that. Cover letters are really important. If a company is not asking for one, then be proactive and write one, describe why you want the opportunity to work there, it's a chance stand out from other applicants, specially in this form of describing something in a brief, honest & creative way.

      If they don't provide a way to add motivation but you still want to add one . Simply type in your motivation in word or pages, save it as a pdf. Drag and drop it i to your CV or portfolio pdf and send it as a single document.
