by Admin on January 15, 2013

 

2013 design team call

 We have a few openings on our design team we want to fill with YOU! 

Do you have a love of a love of buttons, a passion for color, an eye for design and it shows in everything you touch? Well, It is time for you to embrace your talent and design skills can give them the spotlight they deserve!

We’re looking for a few designers who love buttons, to add to our existing and wonderfully talented design team.  We want people who can create fun, fresh, functional and innovative project ideas for our blog, online galleries and other materials.

  • Sewing/quilting, fiber arts, embroidery
  • Cardmaking
  • Scrapbooking
  • Paper crafts
  • Mixed media. 
  • Kids crafts
  • Jewelry

Are you good with a camera? Even better. Because those dynamic, brilliantly shot, perfectly cropped photos give your designs a definite edge.

Here’s what you need to do:

Send us images of your favorite 3-5 projects. The ones that really highlight your mad design skills.  One hard and fast rule – they have to be your own original creations. 

We’ll announce our new design team on Feb 4, 2013.

When you submit your project, please include:

  • Full name
  • Address
  • Email address
  • Phone number
  • Link to your blog and/online gallery. We’d also love to know if you are on Facebook, YouTube, Pinterest, Instagram or Twitter.
  • Send us 3-5 photographs…highlighting your use of buttons.
  •  What do you consider your specialty.
  • Tell us about the CRAFTY you… Do you teach? Have you been published? Do you or have you ever worked at a craft store?
  • What other Design Teams are you part of and when does their term end? (Note: No previous DT experience is required, we want to prevent any conflicts of interest)
  • Send a profile photo and short bio about you. That way when you get picked we already have your info to share.
  • Other information you feel may be beneficial for us to know.

All BGM Design Team applications must be received by January 31st to buttonsgaloreteam@yahoo.com  to be considered. If selected you will be notified via email and the new team will be announced on our blog by February 4th.
