How do you be­come a de­sign team mem­ber? Please can you help?

Cardmaking and Papercraft - - Crafter’s Q&a -

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!
