Crafter's Companion USA Design Team Call

 

Crafter's Companion USA is looking for several new, talented design team members! In addition to card makers, we are looking for mixed media and other alternative artists for our team. We have openings on both our Core Design Team and our brand new Inspiration Team!

As part of the Crafter's Companion USA design team, you will be provided with a generous welcome package (this package varies between teams), and will continue to receive the essentials you need to craft with, free of charge, during your term. You will be part of an elite group of papercrafters and educators; your work may be shared internationally across our other websites and other online platforms.

What we expect from our Core Design Team: 

• Create six projects per month, including one tutorial, video, or other step-by-step project providing educational value to other crafters. Crafter's Companion products must be the sole focus of these projects.
• Play along with our monthly challenge (this project is considered one of the six required monthly projects). • Be active on various social media platforms, including online galleries, websites, and forums; be willing to share your knowledge of our products with other users of all skill levels.
• Be an ambassador for the Crafter's Companion brand, including Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.
• Create samples for use at craft and/or trade shows as needed/requested.

What we expect from our Inspiration Design Team: 

• Create one project per week each month, for a total of four to five projects per month. As part of the Inspiration Team, you are not responsible for creating tutorials, or creating new release samples. Crafter's Companion products must be the sole focus of these projects.
• Be active on various social media platforms, including online galleries, websites, and forums; be willing to share your knowledge of our products with other users of all skill levels. This team will be focusing on sharing Crafter's Companion products through all forms of social media.
• Be an ambassador for the Crafter's Companion brand, including Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.
• Create samples for use at craft and/or trade shows as needed/requested.

What you need to do:

• Send us direct links to three to five of your best projects. Use of Crafter's Companion products and Spectrum Noir alcohol markers is preferred but not required. Please be sure the medium you have used is listed. (note: do not send a general link to your blog or online gallery; be sure to send direct links to projects)
• Make sure what you are sharing with us represents your best work and really showcases what you love to do! We want our team members to take high quality photographs that show a good representation their work and our products. We will also be looking at your writing style and how you share information about the products you use.
• All work submitted must be original and created by you.

Please submit these links via email to designteam@crafterscompanion.com for review. Include the following information in your email:

• Your full name
• Preferred email address (please note: this design team call is open to residents of the United States)
• Phone number
• Address
• Blog Link
• Links to any additional places we might see your work
• Any other design teams you are currently a member of
• Preferred crafting style – are you primarily a card maker? Scrapbooker? Mixed Media artist? Something else entirely?
• If you currently teach classes or hold workshops, any relevant information about them.
• A little about yourself: What do you love about crafting? Why do you want to be a part of the Crafter's Companion team? (Please limit your response to around fifty words)
• Which team you are applying for (you may apply for one or both teams!)

The deadline for submission is 10th November 2013. If chosen for either team, you will be contacted by a representative of Crafter's Companion no later than 15th November 2013 and your term will commence 1st January 2014. Additionally, we are always looking for guest designers; simply note in your email application that you would like to be considered for a guest position as well. (Note: we will not be contacting potential guest designers at this time but instead will keep those applications on file and contact you when a guest position is available.) 

If you have any questions prior to submitting your application, don’t hesitate to send us an email! We look forward to seeing your work!
