Prima Design Team Call 2018
Prima Design Team Call
It's that time of the year when we start searching around the world for the best of the best! The process has been simplified this year into three main categories, so you can apply to the group(s) that fit you best! (Tag your crafty friends so they do not miss this call!)
- Papercrafting, Stamping
- Mixed-Media, Altered
- Videos, Facebook/Instagram Live
- Post your favorite projects on Instagram, or in any of our Facebook groups making sure you tell us which of the three categories above the project fits best.
- Tag us + hashtag #PrimaDTCall
- You can enter as many times as you wish, in as many categories as you wish, by August 3rd. Open to all countries. Good Luck!
- We are looking for strong design ability, stellar photography, and creative use of product.
- (You do not need to use Prima in your entries, but it is appreciated if you do!)
- We do provide lots of gorgeous product multiple times per year and ask for three projects per month in exchange.
- We work hard to make our design team experience one of the VERY BEST out there!

I have had the pleasure to coordinate the design team for the last 12-13 years and it is such an honor to work with the most talented people around the world! If this team is a dream of yours and you are looking for a few tips I would like to suggest a few pointers:
1. Do your thing. Stick to your style. It really shows when you love what you do! Don't try to guess what Prima wants. I have heard from so many designers, "But, my work is nothing like what I thought Prima would pick!" Yep, that is because you are unique and caught our eye!
2. Improve your photos! When you work so hard to create a project shouldn't that be presented in the best light possible? Practice taking project photos in natural light: near a window, or in a garage with the door open. Stand directly over the layout, or stage a little display to create more interest with a card or tag. Avoid direct overhead lighting and bright sunlight. We have team members who take their photos with their smart phones, yet their displays are creative and they always catch natural light so the photos need minimal editing. Great photography/editing can go a long way!
3. There will be a lot of entries and not everyone will be chosen. I have been there. It is so disheartening to not make a team you really love. When that happened to me I gave myself a little pep talk. Many times it isn't YOU! If it was just based on talent Prima's team would be in the thousands...so be kind to yourself and try, try again!
