The wait is finally over… Since we had our first ever open DT call last year, we have worked with some really talented crafters and artists. A lot of you had been enquiring about when are we opening our DT call again and here we are… We are excited to announce that we are having our design team call for the next 6 months (with the option of extending by another 6 months) and as last time we are open to both Indian as well as International designers.
For those who probably have not heard of us, we are CrafTangles, a leading Indian crafts brand. We are part of HNDMD, one of India’s leading online art and craft store. We manufacture card and mixed media supplies including patterned papers, stamps, stencils, decoupage products, sequins, cardstocks, heat transfer foils, chalky paints and much more. So over the next 2 weeks, we are calling upon all the crafty souls and artsy minds to be a part of our journey where we create and share some real handmade goodness.
Why should you apply? / What would you get?
Goodie Bag – A goodie bag of CrafTangles products every month. It would be a combination of our existing products and the new launches of the month. Your goodie bag is totally on us.
Additional Discounts at HNDMD.in for all your purchases as our Design Team member. You will receive a special coupon code to get an additional discount. In case you take classes, additional benefits for using CrafTangles products.
Promotion of your name and work on our social media channels including a blog, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest.
Custom watermark and badge to display on your blog and other social media channels
What do we expect from you?
Work as a team with the HNDMD team as well as other design team members. We are a very ethical and customer-centric company and want to make creativity enjoyable as well as professional to all our team members.
Projects: We expect at least 2 projects every month. More would always be welcome. In any special case, if we require a specific/additional project from you, we would inform you in advance.
We expect the project posts to be detailed and of use to the end user, in essence, that the end reader loves it and takes inspiration from it while highlighting our products and different techniques that they can be used with.
Photos – ‘A Picture tells a thousand words’ – You should be able to take good photos of your projects. They are a showcase of your creativity and work. We would always want it to be top notch 🙂
Deadlines – The projects would have deadlines with respect to you as well as other designers. You should be able to work with them.
Video Content – One of the two posts every month needs to contain a video (flip through / tutorials/product reviews/techniques etc.). So if you have a large following on YouTube, do let us know. It would surely earn you a few brownie points and in case, you choose to be part of our Design Team, a few extra goodies.
Blogs and Social Media – We expect our DT members to be active on their blogs and social media including Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and Pinterest (optional). Our Design Team members are the creative face of our company, and we expect them to promote CrafTangles and HNDMD wherever possible including social groups, your own blog and social media accounts.
Our DT members cannot work with any other Indian brand with similar products.
Feedback – We may provide you with few samples of our products pre-launch and we would expect an honest feedback on the same to us.
Tenure – The initial commitment is of 6 months and is extendable by 6 more months if both parties agree.
