Design Team Call

We are looking for a design team for the next 6 months.  Successful applicants will create two layouts a month, due on the 13th and 28th of the month, and post them on their blog after our reveal, providing a link back to our blog from their posting.  One monthly challenge will be a prompt, and the other will be a layout from a sketch. (Well, actually, designers are not obligated to a layout - if they prefer they may make a card or altered item (off the page item).  We ask that designers visit the blog of each person who enters our challenges and leave a comment on their challenge post, as well send an e-mail to me listing their favourite (1-3) entries for each challenge within a day of the close of the challenge. Designers might also be asked to make a comment or two once a month for a new feature we will be launching soon.

Please let me know your preferred media (card, layout, altered item), include a brief bio, tell us what you have to offer, and include a link to your blog within the body of an e-mail to:  anne.pennington@xplornet.com by the 14th of August.  I will get back to the successful applicants by the 17th and provide them with their first challenge which will be due by the 28th of August. Designers will have all your challenges well ahead of time so that they can pace themselves, or do several at a time so that they can pursue other commitments.

Only those who want to make new friends, learn from each other and have fun along the way need apply!!

The design team will be announced on the blog on the 20th of August.  The bios you provide in your application will be used for the announcement.
