Away is seeking a paid intern to help with our Artist Monogramming series! This person will work alongside our resident hand-lettering artist Jen Mussari to hand paint monograms on bags. The right candidate will be technically skilled in painting, typography, or graphic design and will be eager to work at a quickly growing company.
Since April 2016, Away has offered hand-painted monograms to its customers. Demand has been growing for these art pieces, but our resident artist is a one-woman freelance business who needs a hand! She will teach you the basics of sign painting, working with sign painters enamel, and offer tips and tricks while on-site. You will learn three to five alphabet styles and be able to reproduce them using a system of stencils and transfers.
