Artist in Residence

San Francisco

Do you have what it takes to be Redbubble’s next Resident Artist?

We are always looking to collaborate with the best of the best! We want you if you are:

If this sounds like you, drop your paintbrush now, and apply! We want you in our office pronto!

This sounds awesome, right, but you’re not quite sure how a Redbubble Residency works?

Well, let’s explain it:

So, how does this project thing work?

Basically we want to hear about what you want to work on (this is where you pitch us a project idea), for how long (3-9 months), and how our Redbubble team can help you achieve that goal (what team would best suit your needs).

So, let’s say, you’ve been dying to illustrate a children’s book, or create an app, or design a how-to-guide for artists on how to market themselves those are all awesome project ideas and we would love to support you!

If you don’t have an idea of your own don’t fret, below is a bunch of things we need help with, pick one if you get stuck, and  tell us why you would be perfect for the residency.

ZOO LABS - This is a brand new initiative so think early stages. Redbubble would like to explore a partnership with SF based company, ZOO LABS. They have a residency program as well.

Skills to learn are - business planning, collaboration, branding, mentorship, marketing and promotion. (6 months)

If you love to create design work that references pop culture and want to learn how Redbubble manages this moving forward - we need your expertise! (3 months)

Sharing the heART - Are you a master of selling art online? Here is a chance to work with our awesome and talented Customer Experience team, share great tips and tricks on how best to optimise a Redbubble profile. This could include regular webinars, tutorial videos, blog posts and a chance to upgrade our Artist Help Centre. (6 months)

Pro Tee designer - Are you obsessed with designing the perfect t-shirt? This is an opportunity to work closely with our product and logistics teams to ensure quality is number one when it comes to using correct design practices.
