I’m willing to admit from minute one that we’re not vitally committed to either of these positions; but for the right person, we’re hoping to add to our little bubbles of talent. If the right candidates come along, we’d love to bring in a person skilled in the art of graphic design [think wedding monograms, invitations, and graphics for media-related details] and also a floral design assistant with great availability and love of floral work to grow up this side of our company!
Basic duties of a graphics intern:
*Attend any graphics-related design meetings [such as invitation design, working directly with client, and/or tabletop trial to discuss detail ideas]
*Create invitation options for couples to consider, working with a color palette and a general/vague [or possibly specific] idea from their designer
*Utilize any unique requests from couple/designer to create custom pieces within an invitation suite
*Work with an existing [alternate designer's] graphic piece to form a cohesive look on the wedding day by providing details for client [such as font matching to already-sent invitations so that the design flows continuously]
*Work in a TIMELY manner with set turnaround times to designer/client between revision rounds
*Set documents to correct “print ready” files and be aware of the meaning of this term; work with our design vendors to set up accurate and easy-to-navigate files for all detail elements concepted
Basic duties of a floral intern:
*Attend any floral-related design meeting [such as initial floral meeting and/or tabletop trial]
*Learn the art of placing floral order, stem counts, and accurately pricing events
*Familiarize yourself with the floral market and/or vendors located in/near the market in downtown Los Angeles
*Assist the floral design team on dates of floral trials and assembly of weddings
*Assist and install on wedding days
*Be ready and willing to learn all that you do NOT know; bring eagerness to the table – that covers a multitude of “lack” in experience
We’ve considered, for a graphics person, the allowance of a design-from-afar personality, but our hunger to connect with one another trumps this desire. However, if you feel like you’re the EXACT one we’re looking for… even though you’re 6 states away, I do encourage you to reach out and apply!
As I mentioned in our initial blog post about adding to our team, we have a delicately balanced dynamic… which is why we’re considering these two roles- although very desirable at this point in time- an added “bonus” for us! Since we do offer graphics to nearly every client [usually working in conjunction with an invitation designer and our own skills in-house], we’re fond of the idea of growing up this side of our company. And since we do consider floral design something that ties directly into our job as event designers [though we offer floral services quite selectively to our clientele and have to be absolutely convinced that we're the BEST fit for them and their needs prior to doing so], we’d love to tie either of these skills into the one person that may meet all of our needs as a Design Assistant! If we could roll you into one giant person…. exceptional! If not all of these areas fit your skill or heart’s desire, just say so. We just want to ensure we’re being clear and communicative on our end for what our little growing family needs! So, please, don’t hesitate to connect to us with your Random Rundown, Resume and/or Portfolio to Carizza by 3/18 at 12pm with the subject line: Floral(or Graphic Design) Intern/Name for consideration!
