Open Call for Features on Rise Design & Shine: Submissions Now Open

Rise Design & Shine was born of the idea that we are stronger and more motivated when we work together. I'm on the hunt for creatives to join our Rise Design & Shine Contributors! From moodboards, to doodles, artist takeovers to your news... If you have something you'd like to share with the RDS community I'd love to hear from you. I'm looking for both one-off contributions (see below for more info) and people who are interested in doing a regular feature.

Designer Takeover (one week stretch)

We're looking for members of our design community to takeover our Instagram account for a week at a time, showcasing their design process, WIPs, studio/working space (warts and all) and give us an insight into their world. 

Guest Bloggers

If you would like to feature as a Guest Blogger, please use the form to submit your post idea or completed post and images. 

Time to Shine (News/Promotion)

Do you have a new product line or have you just finished an awesome new collection? Whatever your news, feel free to send it our way! Remember to include image and links so readers get the full impact and can visit your site(s).

Don't be shy, if you have an achievement you'd like to brag about (or for us to do it on your behalf) let us know. 

Midweek Mood Contributor

Motivational hand lettered words or quotes, mood boards, colours you're loving, this feature is all about positive vibes and inspiration and we're looking to showcase your designs and musings.

Other

Have an idea of your own, a skill or process that you would like to showcase as a one-off post or feature series of post? Pop it in the for to let us know more!
