jobs [needed and offered]

every now and then i meet an inspiring student or designer looking for work and want to offer any help i can give. when i was down in savannah at scad i met two such students, lillian farag (that's her work above) and kimb james. both were students in the fibers department and are highly skilled pattern makers. it's tough to find a job straight out of school so i thought i'd share some of their work here in hopes that someone out there is looking for a new hire or might know a spot for them. both of their websites have their contact information so if you think they might be right for your company please don't hesitate to contact them- they're wonderful girls and would be a great addition to any staff. also, speaking of staffs, house & garden is looking for a new editor. details below:
House & Garden magazine has an opening for a style editor with a passion for design and broad experience covering the luxury home design market. The editor will contribute story ideas and produce shopping stories on such topics as furniture, design, kitchen and bath, fabric, and technology. It helps to have writing and reporting experience and ability, deep contacts in the design community, and a strong visual point of view. Applicants should send a resume and cover letter to Eliza_Honey [at] condenast.com.
hopefully someone in our community can help with all of these. in the meantime, i'm working away on a d*s job board that will focus on helping students and those interested in independent design find ways to hire and be hired. stay tuned...

What a great idea, so helpful when starting out. It's a scary time to begin with, I'm sure people will be grateful for the resource.

im doing the same thing over on print & pattern today - promoting a couple of british students. a jobs board sounds fantastic - not just for graduates, but for freelancers too. that could be a wonderful resource - another brilliant idea from design*sponge.

Dear D,

I discovered your blog not too long ago and fell in love you are awesome! I went to school at GSU (an hour from SCAD) and majored in graphic design and painting. I think this is a wonderful idea, we graduates need all of the help we can get, we have alot to offer and if it wasn't for people like yourself who showcase such wonderful finds they wouldn't have any idea.

This is a great idea!! Its really hard to get a job with "little experience" when we have soo much to offer.

Thank you so much for always featuring work from my fellow SCAD students and alumni. I graduated last year from the Photo department but I secretly wanted to be a fibers major. It just seemed that all the students in that dept LOVED their major. Never met a single one who was there because they were forced. I am very proud of all of them and their fantastic work. They had the Senior show about a month and a half ago, and I snapped many pictures to send to you, but I lost them somehow. boo. Everything was so great, I just wanted to put everything in my bag and make a run for it he he
