2009 Design Team Search

Paper Imagery Designs was created from the heart. We are the combination of a dynamic mother-daughter team and have created images for use in your art work. Whether it is for ATC’s, altered books, collage, creating keepsake cards or mixed media, you certainly will be delighted to use our images.

Paper Imagery Designs is currently accepting applications for designers for the January-June, 2009 Design Team Term. (Continuation of the term will be determined by both parties at the end of six months.) You must submit your application no later than November 30, 2008. No late entries will be accepted.

What we require from you:
Create one (1) large project every other month for our DT Monthly Challenge (which equals 3 projects over all) with any of our current and/or future product lines including step by step instructions for the PID Newsletter and will be due no later than the 25th of that month. For this monthly challenge we would like to see art larger than an ATC. Any artwork submitted later than the 25th will not be used and you will forfeit your next “kit”. The DT challenge will be rotated among the 8 designers.

For the off month from the DT Challenge you will be required to prepare one tutorial and post to our yahoo group and PID Blog with step by step instructions and photos. Names will be randomly chosen for this assignment and posted in the DT group.
In addition you will be required to submit 2 pieces of small art monthly i.e.; ATCs, cards, inchies, 2x2, 3x3’s etc. We would like these pieces to correspond with the weekly challenges and/or swaps that are hosted in the group and join in the mingles to swap them out with our members. You will also be required to design a minimum of 2 kits during your term.
Please be enthusiastic about your work, your artistic abilities and about our products! Have the ability to use a variety of styles and up-to-date techniques while including various mediums in your artwork.

We ask that you do not belong to any other company as a Design Team member that sells collage sheets and you may not offer free sheets or sell collage sheets or similar products to ours via your blog, Etsy or eBay sites, Webshots or picture trail sites etc.
Have stellar time management and organization skills that allow you to work within set / strict deadlines.

You must be able to create good clear photographs/scans and post projects using the Paper Imagery Designs items that you receive, by the set deadlines.
You must be able to post on the Paper Imagery Designs Blog, at least once a month some of your designs.

Submit your Paper Imagery Designs art for publication (Magazines, ezines, contests, etc).
We need our Designers to be active in our yahoo groups that have been created for PID (there are two groups: The Home group and the Swap group), and throughout the Mixed Media industry. Membership is a must in the DT Yahoo group also.
ADVERTISE!!!! Be PROUD to be on the Paper Imagery Designs Design Team! Put our banner/link on your BLOG and in your signature lines on yahoo groups and message boards where allowed!

Post your finished projects online in the galleries of Mixed Media sites everywhere! You must identify Paper Imagery Designs as the manufacturer used in your designs regardless of where the project is posted / submitted.

Agree by applying, to release the rights of your designs to Paper Imagery Designs for display on the company website, Blog and in company materials and publications.
Must be at least 21 years of age.

Constant communication with both the Paper Imagery Designs owners and your DT coordinator is mandatory.
