COLOURING DESIGN TEAM CALL

INTERNATIONAL DIGI/FACEBOOK TEAM – DESIGN TEAM CALL
We are very excited to announce that we are looking for some additional talented crafters to join our Digital Design Team so if you would love to be involved with the team please read our criteria below and contact us!  We are looking for more than one person and we specifically need people from around the globe who can colour using alcohol markers, pencils or distress inks (any brand) and people with a variety of skills. You MUST be willing to use digital products and love crafting with characters whilst also be able to showcase other styles of cards and projects too.

We are looking for people who use Facebook and at least one other type of  social media/ blogs to take part in our 
COLOURING TEAM.
This is a new team and members will be expected to take part in all our Facebook activity, including a weekly challenge, regular Facebook events and a busy posting schedule.

At Polkadoodles we are first and foremost a business and our promotions support that, so we require more input than a 'hobby-type' blog where you would have sponsors that change from week to week - being on our team means you are valued and will be expected to work hard during your time with us, but you can also obtain great exposure for your creativity and we have opportunities for other things along the way too including the possibility of becoming a sample maker and having your work shown here on our UK TV Craft Channel.

You will need to use downloadable digi stamps and printables including our awesome backing papers and embellishments (we also have cutting files if you use them).
We are always on the lookout for exceptional creative talent that can help us make our products look great and help to promote the Polkadoodles brand.

We do have some stringent requirements for our teamies but if you can manage the following we'd love to hear from you:
1. You must be able to commit long term to a very busy team - many people underestimate how important this is, we're not interested in people who flit from team to team to gain new stash or having no staying power, we commit to you and so we need that commitment back.
You will be given a 2 month term initially with a review to joining us permanently after this period.
2. You must be able to complete projects on time to deadline - deadline failure is a BIG no no!
3. Commitment:
We need you to make a minimum of one project every week during your time on the team.
You will also be expected to: actively promote our brand on Facebook in our Facebook groups/Twitter/ Instagram/ Pinterest and your own blog if you have one.  Being active on Social media is a pre-requisite to being on our team (you don't have to do ALL of these).
You will be expected to leave comments using our rota system for people who enter our challenges and to vote weekly through a rota.
If you are a great colourist you may not need to make an actual card project if we think your colouring is suitable to promote in the way we need.
4. Skill level - you need to be of a suitable skill level and be capable of good composition in your projects.  Projects need to be finished to a good standard.
5. Photos - you MUST be able to take good photos of your work.  Your photos represent our products and they need to be a good standard to showcase them properly.  We can help with this if needed.

It's hard to say what we're looking for in terms of the style we're looking for, but we need a high standard of work - you need to be able to create a project from scratch and to be able to think outside the page now and then - we need versatility from our team.  So, it doesn't matter if you like fussy or clean and simple, it's about the overall composition and skill level you can present. We sell SVG cutting files and digital papers and kits, so you must also be prepared to used your printer!  If you don't like printing your own papers then please don't apply as this will be required (our papers are not expensive to print because of the way we design).You will be generously rewarded with products to use during your time on the team in return for your hard work and commitment - the more work you do for us the more you will be rewarded.

Most of all - we need people who ADORE craft and live and breathe for it.  We want people who are always looking to improve their skills and who are team players in it for the long haul.
So if this is you, email us with why you wanna be in the team, your blog address and examples of some work, we'd love to see them!  email us at:sales@polkadoodles.co.uk
