My Kits and Pieces is having a Design Team call! I will just say that I love the message board over there. It's tiny and so it always feels like having a personal conversation. No cliques. No drama. Just a lot of fun chatter. And as far as being on the DT, Rosy (the DT coordinator and kit picker outer) is fab! She's very responsive and easy going. I encourage you to come over and visit the message board and hang out for a while and see if it's a good fit. The kits are very fun (and Rosy listens to requests)! Here's all the official information:
Kits & Pieces is looking for talented designers! We are looking to add two people to our fabulous design team, as well as identifying future guest designers.
Kits & Pieces offers expandable kits (2 per month), which means you choose how much you get of many key products. This accommodates scrappers who are watching their budgets and want a fabulous kit for under $20, scrappers who want more than one kit without having to pay for shipping twice, scrappers who want a kit jam-packed with all the latest and greatest products, and everyone in between!
We are looking for people who:
*are creative, dependable and flexible
*are willing to be active in our online community
*like to share their work
*are willing to give feedback about kits, contests, classes, etc.
Our DT members are expected to:
*create 3 layouts with one of our monthly kits
*write a brief article for our semi-monthly newsletter (check past newsletters for examples)
*add 25 posts per week to our message board on average
*participate in hosting online crops (every 6 months or so) and help with contests
*post their layouts on their blog and on other websites, crediting K&P when possible
*take 2-3 months off per year--this gives designers a creative break and allows us to keep things fresh
You will receive:
*one kit each month
*a discount to the store
*access to online classes
*in some cases, the ability to teach classes (for cash)
To apply, please provide the following information:
Name, address, phone #, and e-mail
A brief bio and headshot (which will be used if we select you)
A link to your online gallery
Your blog address (if you have one) and any forums in which you are active
List your 3 favorite products to work with,
3 strengths as a scrapper,
and 3 reasons why you would like to design for My Kits and Pieces.
Getting to know us on the message board and sharing your work in our gallery isn't required, but is always helpful!
**International designers are welcome to apply--however, we will need you to pay the difference in shipping, as well as provide an estimated shipping time from the US (if you know)**
Please e-mail your information to firstname.lastname@example.org by July 10. New DT members will be announced by July 15 and will begin with our August kits. Thanks, and good luck!
You can see the July kits here. And even if you're not interested in the design team, I hope you'll come and chat with us. It's a lovely little community!
