D*S Is Hiring: Product Editor

by Grace Bonney


After eight years of running Design*Droits-Humains, I’ve learned a lot about my own strengths and weaknesses. For years I had endless amounts of energy to help me stay up all night clicking through links and searching for new things to cover on the blog. But as I inch closer to a decade of blogging, I’ve realized my passions and interests have changed and evolved in a different direction and leave me wanting to share different types of writing and inspiration here. And as much as I love new products, covering them with the same intensity and passion has been harder. That said, I love products and want them to continue to be a major part of what we cover here at D*S. So, I’ve decided it’s time to find a new team member to join us who lives and breathes product design. I’m looking for someone who enjoys spending hours online, attending shows and researching the latest and greatest designs in the creative community. Because my priority is always to showcase work that hasn’t been blogged everywhere, I’m looking for someone who feels confident that they have their finger on the pulse of the creative community. Typically I find new team members behind the scenes, but I feel like so many of you in this audience would be perfect for this job, so I thought I’d share this opening here. If you’re interested in joining our team of whacky, fun and passionate design fans, here are the details:

  • Position: Product Editor
  • Description: Looking for a writer to research and post great product design. I’m open to expanding this to include packaging and other types of product-oriented design. We’re looking for people that understand and share our aesthetic.
  • Location: Freelance or in-office here in Brooklyn are both fine. You do not need to live in NYC or be in the same time zone.
  • Timing: We’ll work together to create a schedule, but this will be at least a 3 post a week commitment.
  • Compensation: This a paid part-time position.

 

If you’re interested in joining the team, please email DESIGNSPONGE AT GMAIL DOT COM (subject line “Product Editor”) a resume and 3–4 examples of products you would write about* that haven’t been covered online before. If you currently run your own blog or write for another, please include that information. I can’t wait to hear from you! xo, grace UPDATE: I’M NO LONGER ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS DUE TO THE (WONDERFUL) OVERWHELMING RESPONSE. I’M GOING THROUGH APPS NOW, THANKS SO MUCH TO EVERYONE WHO APPLIED!

*None of product suggestions included these emails will be used on Design*Droits-Humains without credit. The new editor will be announced in the coming weeks and this post will be updated when we have a final choice.
