DT Call!

*The Call Is Now Closed *
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you to everyone who applied to this call! I'm blown away by the level of talent, and this is going to be reallllly hard to choose just a couple.
Really hard!!
Invitations to the teams will go out by noon on Tuesday.

I am looking for a few talented designers to join one of my teams!

  • CAS-ual Fridays Challenge Team- 3 spots
  • CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Company Team-2 spots

I also have a non-design opportunity.
  • Pin Pal-1 spot
(see details on this at the end of this post.)

Here's what I'm looking for in a designer:
  • First and foremost, you must love CAS-ual Fridays Stamps and Fri-Dies! Maybe you've just discovered us, and that's OK! BUT, you've got to love our stuff, and feel excited about creating with the designs and promoting them.
  • Fun-loving creatives with positive, professional, no-drama attitudes and the ability to meet easy deadlines.
  • Awesome design skills: Cardmakers, Scrapbookers, Mixed Media, Clean and Simple, Utterly Adorable Layers or anything in between, just knock my socks off with your work.
  • A fun active blog that shows your personality, and a range of techniques.
  • Excellent photography skills that result in crisp, clear, bright photos.
  • Active in at least two social media platforms such as Instagram, YouTube, Pinterest, Facebook, etc., Must have a Facebook account so you can join the team group page.
If this sounds like you so far, here are the team options for you to consider:

The Challenge Team
Designer Requirements:

  • Create 1 new project using CFS product for each challenge theme (every other Friday)
  • Promote each challenge and CFS on your blog and social media platforms.
  • Leave kind comments in the player's gallery - this challenge is about fun, inspiration and encouragement, not critiquing.
  • Send in your top picks at the end of the each challenge so Alanna can tally the votes.
  • Commit to the term July 1, 2018 thru January 31, 2019

Team Perks:
  • Challenge themes  available in advance so you can plan.
  • Generous supply of CAS-ual Fridays Stamps goodness to get you started.
  • CFS watermark to add to your CFS project photos.
  • Discount on personal purchases.
  • Exposure on the CFS Challenge blog and social media.

The Company Team

Designer Requirements:
  • Release months: Create one project for each Product Debut day during our Release Week, plus 2 additional projects that month (there will be approximately 3 releases during the term)
  • Non-release months: Create 2-3 projects as assigned on the editorial calendar, 1 needs to be a tutorial- either step by step photos or video.
  • Ability to write clear and easy to understand instructions or descriptions.
  • Draft your project post on the company blog using blogger platform.
  • Post your projects on your blog and at least 2 other social media accounts.
  • Promote CAS-ual Fridays Stamps whenever possible.
