ABOUT OUR DESIGN TEAM
Aside from receiving all the wonderful products from Imaginisce, our designers will serve a minimum period of one year on the team, but you may be asked to say on longer. We do compensate generously with our products (just ask last year's girls). Also, we do compensate for published work, catalog work and any other special projects we might request.
1. You will be required to create 4-6 projects using a minimum of 75% Imaginisce current products each month.
2. Promote the Imaginisce site/blog on your blog by posting any Imaginisce contests, news, announcements, new collection sneak peeks, etc.
3. Post your projects to your blog and at least 1-2 additional online galleries (ie. twopeasinabucket.com, scrapbook.com, scrapjazz.com, etc.)
4. You may be asked to submit assignments for specific types of projects using specific collections.
5. On occasion we may select a project to be made in to class instructions and request from you step-by-step instructions, which you will receive compensation. Also, there are times that we may request specific product samples for events, trade shows or sale calls--this is completely voluntary and you will be compensated.
