Open Call for Designers for AW Showcase Blog


UPDATE (JULY 29, 2014)
*** CLOSED FOR APPLICATIONS ***


Designer positions have been filled.  Thank you for your interest.

Hi, everyone!  This is Mitzi here.  I've decided to have an open call for designers for this blog, whose job will be a little different from the DT on the Challenge Blog.  Here's what I need your help with.

  • Design a card or other paper product sample for my new release on a relatively short notice (1 to 2 weeks) but no more than 2 times per month
  • Time coordinate your own blog (or other social media postings) with the new release of the particular digi
  • Spread the word about the digi on any social media you use

My ideal candidate will have the following qualities.
  • A fan of AuroraWings digital stamps and love playing with them
  • Not involved in too many DT obligations so you have time to create for me and with me
  • Not a regular DT member of any digi companies'/artists' showcase/challenge blogs (DT work with private challenge blogs is fine.) except for companies/entities that AW has affiliations with ('Sweet Pea Stamps' and 'Kit & Clowder')
  • Love entering challenges and blogging about your craft projects using AW digis
  • May not be an advanced crafter/colorist, but creates with passion and joy
  • Good at written communications in English (via e-mail, Facebook PM, etc.)
  • Experience with designing for blogs (showcase or challenge) helpful, but not required
  • Be able to stay with us for a period of 6 months (with option to renew) unless some RL circumstance makes it impossible

Here's what a showcase blog designer, if chosen for the position, will get.

  • Your blog badge as a designer for AW Showcase Blog
  • Opportunity to play with new release digis BEFORE they are available to the public
  • Access to a small, designers-only FB group, where most communications will take place
  • Having your sample work featured on AW's Etsy listings with your blog links
  • Access to AW digis on demand for personal projects separate from your sample work
  • Opportunity to GDT for our Challenge Blog
  • First consideration will be given to Showcase Blog Designers when a Challenge Blog DT opening becomes available 

If this is something you'd be interested, please send your e-mail to aurorawingsshowcase(at)aol(dot)com with subject line "Designer Position Application".   Please include the following questions and your answers in your e-mail (copy and paste the following questions and fill out with your answers).  I look forward to hearing from you.  Thank you!!  

*** Questions for the AW Showcase Designer Candidates ***

1. Your name, please.

2. Your blog URL, if you have one.  As for those of you who don't have a blog, please list (with links) where you share your creations.

3.  Are you a member of AuroraWings Facebook Group?

4.  Approximately, how long have you been coloring/crafting with AuroraWings digis?

5.  Please list your current DT obligations, if any.

6.  Please list your past DT obligations, if applicable.

My name is Laurence, my blog is http://laurencecardsmemories.blogspot.fr/
Am a member of the Facebook club. Have discovered AuroraWings a few month ago through the only DT am on. The number of craft project I make in a month d├ępends a bit from my mojo but a minimum of 6 is sure.
Am working part time, and therefore have a bit of time to craft.
