Guest Design Team call out January 2018

3 CommentsSaturday, 20 January 2018  |  Lesley Wharton

Could you be our next Guest Design Team member?

Chocolate Baroque is a British manufacturer of rubber art stamps. We recognise the importance of having a high quality Design Team to showcase the versatility of our products and we are looking for new designers with creative ideas and original flair to join our Guest Team.

Guest Design Team members create 3 samples and write a blog post for three weeks in a month and then again for a further 3 weeks six months later. So if you feel that being part of a full blown team may be more than you can manage but you would like the opportunity to see your artwork on our DT blog and the tv then this may be right up your street.

Guest Design team benefits

  • 20% discount on CB stamps
  • Equivalent of at least 1 A4 sheet of CB stamps for tv shows
  • The equivalent of 1 A4 sheet  of CB stamps of your choice as a thank for your GDT contributions if you use stamps you already own. Alternatively wwe ill send you the equivalent for you to use in your posts.
There are other intangible benefits, such as being the first to see and work with brand new product releases and being part of a close knit team of like minded designers.

Who we’re looking for

Ideally you need to be really into stamping and love Chocolate Baroque designs. If you don’t own any CB stamps, that’s fine, go take a look and if you like what you see, then show us what you can do with the stamps you already have.

We are in the UK but you don’t have to be. You need to be able to write step by step instructions in English, but we have worked with team members in the Netherlands, Canada, Belgium, Spain and Portugal etc so your physical location doesn’t matter. However you must be able to receive mail fairly easily as we will need to send out stamps and postage delays can cause problems with tv shows and publishing dates on the blog.

You need to have a blog of your own and we are looking for people who are active online, whether that’s blogging, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc.

Good clear photography is essential and you need to have enough technical knowledge to understand how to link to products on our website.

What we expect from you

  • 3 artwork samples, and accompanying blog post, twice a year to be incorporated for 3 consecutive weeks in a month and then a further 3, six months later.
  • Active blogging with Chocolate Baroque products
  • At least 3-4 samples for tv shows approximately once a month with stamps of our selection
  • Maintaining strict confidentiality at all times, particularly in relation to new product launches
It is essential that you have an email address and are happy to communicate by email.

How to apply

  1. Email at least four photographs of recent stamped artwork to sales@chocolatebaroque.com with the subject line GUEST DESIGN TEAM APPLICATION. 
  2. Tell us a bit about yourself, what stamps you like, what products and materials you like using and anything else you think is relevant.
  3. Please tell us of any other Design Teams you are involved with (current or past) and any other affiliations that you think we ought to know about.

Deadline

The call is open right now and we will accept submissions up to 23rd February 2018

How we select

We call on a small select group of friends and colleagues to help us select a balanced range of artwork from those that are submitted, then we look for that 'certain something' that will be appealing to our customers.  We try to see through their eyes and look for the artwork that will have people reaching for their inkpads and itching to have a go.

When you'll hear back from us

We will look at submissions as they come in and hope to make our decisions by 8th March We will be in touch with everyone who sends in a submission no later than15th March.

Please feel free to share this call with friends and on social media - we'd love to spread the word.

Thanks
