It’s the end of this five week series and I am so happy to hear that this series has been helpful for many of you. I was hoping to answer more questions in this last post, but upon looking back through your questions, I think I covered everything in the previous posts.
In closing, I wanted to share some words of encouragement from the contributors and myself. You got through the tough questions and now we want you to feel fully equipped and ready to tackle any design team call that comes your way!
I know that the process or thought of being on a design team, representing a company can be a little intimidating at first– believe me, everyone feels like that with their first team. Create the best that you can, share your passion for the company and/or products and be yourself. There’s only one YOU. Be original, genuine and be prepared for the unexpected. Companies are always on the lookout for new talent- you just might get an email one of these days!
“Work closely with the other design team members and don’t be afraid to ask questions! When you’re in a design team, you’re family! “
“First, congratulations! Second, have fun. Finally, be creative!”
“The most important thing is to be yourself! Create how you want to create, use the products you love, and showcase your wonderful talents! Keep enjoying this wonderful hobby!
“Every single designer in blogland, even the ones you admire most, was once a newbie too. Just have fun and go for it! Seriously! “
“First, congratulations! Take a moment and appreciate that you are being appreciated for your talents. Second, be yourself. I keep going back to that, but really you are on the design team because of what makes you uniquely you.
Try not to overextend yourself. Try out one design team and see how you like it. See what feels right for you and for your life before you burn out by saying “yes” too many times. Again, go with what you love!
Lastly, have fun because why wouldn’t you when playing with awesome crafty goodness?!?”
I hope that this series was helpful and answered some questions you had about the design team world. My hope is that you now feel equipped to apply to a design team, or get your blog “design team ready” in case a company stumbles across your blog. Whatever the case may be, remember to have fun with this journey.
