Last month we did our first public design team call to expand our existing design team by two spots. Our product line is very specialized - wafer thin cutting dies with a specialization of pop-up and interactive cards. We weren't sure what the response would be, but hoped at least a handful of people would apply.
It was more than a handful!
It was more than many handfuls!
Many, MANY talented designers answered the call!
We were equal parts thrilled and filled with dread - how on earth could we pick just two?
So the first thing we did is expand the available slots to three, but we still had to send a ton of rejection e-mails to very qualified applicants. We thank everyone for their interest and we definitely invite people to apply to future calls. As our company grows we expect our team needs will grow as well. Additionally, we will keep all applications on file for future guest designer and special assignment opportunities.
Sandy, Irene and Lois will be participating in this week's Designer Challenge with a theme of "House" so make sure you check it out this Wednesday, September 5, 2018.
We've also opened up the September Release for pre-order on KarenBurniston.com. Shipping starts September 10th. The assembly videos for the pop-ups and animal sets are loaded onto the product pages already. Charm set videos will go up this week. Here'a a summary video for the 16 new dies:
