How do you become a design team member? Please can you help?
Sarah says: Craft companies like design team (DT) members who use various social media platforms to showcase their work, so I suggest making sure you have an up-to-date gallery on Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest. Your own blog is essential too, and again, this ideally needs to be updated regularly with new projects. Make sure everything is photographed well, as companies are looking for good photography skills as well as craft skills. You will also have a great advantage if you produce your own videos on YouTube. Once your social media and blog is looking great, keep an eye out on companies’ websites for when they have DT calls so you don’t miss one. Facebook is also a good place to keep a look out, too. Finally, when putting in your application, make sure you send in your best work and that it’s photographed beautifully. Sometimes it also helps to use that company’s products, too, but it’s not essential. Good luck!
