We are a 27 year old apparel company looking for an in house designer. Programs used internally are:
Answers to questions:
Can I work from home?
NO. We have 2 full time staff artists and need a 3rd. Not looking for freelancers.
I design lots of things and my mom says I am awesome, but I have never done tees. Can I still apply?
NO! NO and NO. We want those who are experienced in apparel. Paper, web and apparel are very different animals. A wearable must convey your idea much quicker than any other medium.
I can use Word and Paint. Is that cool?
Not really cool at all. I would go as far as to say "uncool". Please see the above list for programs and have a firm grasp of some of them.
I like to really pour myself into my design and painstakingly make every aspect perfect. I designed my brothers business card in only 5 days. Am I perfect for the T-shirt world?
NO. NO. NO and NO. We are a fast paced environment printing thousands of shirts a day. Most jobs should take less than one hour to create, separate and send to film. There are those times we can spend days on a presentation to a large client, but 90% of the design needed can be wrapped up in 2 hours or less.
Will I learn anything working in there?
YES! You will get the benefit of working with, what we believe to be, 2 of the best apparel artists in America. Their award winning work has been sold all over the world to some of the biggest names in retail and industry. They are wonderful humans and will assist in preparing you for the coming storm.
What kind of stuff do you create in house?
Aside from screen printed apparel, we also embroider and number garments. We are a retail ready shop with custom Barcoding, folding, size striping and bagging for the biggest retailers. We sublimate rolls of fabric for cut and sew applications. We print banners, decals and sublimate hundreds of other items. We offer fulfillment from web based stores, create microstores for quick fundraising and have added vehicle wraps, to our ever expanding product offering.
Will customers ever ask for changes to my incredible designs?
YES. As might the owner and the salespeople before the customer ever sees it. You need thick skin and an ability to adapt. Not everyone will love every creation like your mom does.
Will I be given the opportunity to design high volume pieces that will be sold and worn all over the world?
Will I be sipping latte's and pushing my pen on my Wacom all year?
NO. We may require all hands on deck during certain times. Filling orders, catching shirts, folding, etc. etc. We feel it's important for our designers to spend some time on the shop floor learning how artist errors can kill production. Once you see what the production crew goes through to put your masterpiece on cotton you will be more apt to reduce art issues.
Should I send you an email asking for more info about the job?
Should I put together a portfolio of my apparel designs and include it with my resume'?
Should I live within 20ish miles of the Knoxville/McGee Tyson Airport in Alcoa, TN?
Do I need a fancy art degree from a fancy school?
Nope. Although our current artists do we do not require it. Talent is talent.
When can I start?
We are a low drama work place. We have very little turnover and compared to industry standards, we have NO turnover. Please bring a fun, joyful and hard working spirit with you.
