Paper Trunk is launching the first ever Trunk Designer Team search. I am open to submissions from new and experienced designers. Some of the things I will be looking for are consistency, professionalism, creativity, and quality of work. This is a very exciting step for my small but growing company. As a Trunk Team member, you will be a critical asset in promoting the products on message boards, submitting to publications, and representing the company. I will be looking for individuals who are a good fit for Paper Trunk and a team that will work together well.Â Does that sound like something you would like to be a part of? Then read on, my friend… I hope the following will answer some of the questions racing through your mind.
Who can submit:
Anyone with a passion for crafting and an excitement about Paper Trunk products.Â International designers are welcome to apply.Â It is alright to be a Design Team member for a retail shop, E-Zine, publication, or the like. If you design for another manufacturer, I ask that you use discretion when submitting; please respect the relationship you have with the other manufacturer.
What to submit
Please send in 2 recent layouts that best reflects your style. I would love to have an â€œaltered artistâ€. If you specialize in creating altered works, you have the option to send in one project you have created and one layout.
