DesignerZine Offers Online Designer Showcase

If you’ve ever wanted to display your work to manufacturers, publishers, and others in the industry, here’s your chance! DesignerZine, an online magazine for professional designers, is offering its first Online Designer Showcase from Sept. 25-Oct. 2.

The event offers craft designers the opportunity to display their work for viewing by industry manufacturers, publishers, television producers, editors and other companies. This provides you the opportunity to make industry contacts, as well as promote and sell your work.

The online showcase is conducted much like similar events that take place at trade shows, where designers set up their own displays and manufacturers browse the designers’ work -- from fabric to paper, beads to clay and everything in between. With the DesignerZine Online Designer Showcase, however, no travel is required!

Designers may display up to 12 projects. They should have a resume and head shot, and will be asked to build a backdrop to display their work, just as in a “live” showcase.

Participation in the showcase is open only to paid subscribers of DesignerZine. For more information on subscription services and rates, please see subscription details on the website, and for more information on the designer showcase, please see our article about the showcase.

You can also see the manufacturers who've expressed interest in participating, and get your questions about the showcase answered, on the DesignerZine forums. The forums on DesignerZine are open to subscribers and non-subscribers alike.

To protect all participants, the online showcase will be by registration / invitation only. Subscribers who would like to participate in the showcase should email Jan Hicks at or R. Lynn Baker at to activate their showcase account. Manufacturers, publishers, editors or company owners who would like to view the showcase should contact Margert Ann Kruljac at or Melony Bradley at
