Here Is Your Chance to Draw Brightly Colored Dolphins for a Living

Posted By on Tue, Jul 30, 2013 at 3:00 PM

Legendary artist working in the sticker/notebook/school binder medium, Lisa Frank, is hiring a staff artist here in Tucson, so get the resume together, unemployed dreamers! Don't think they're just handing out magnificent careers over at the magic factory, however. The qualifications are rigorous, but what else would you expect from a company of this caliber:


Candidate must have:
5-10 years professional experience with proven ability in packaging design for children's products
Consumer products background (preferably toy, stationery, or cosmetics)
Fresh eye on current trends
Passion, creativity, and new ideas
Expert-level knowledge of Adobe Illustrator and PhotoShop (CS6)
Strong design and color sense, with understanding of balance and composition
Ability to create original art / graphics
Strong attention to detail and ability to follow precise instructions
Experience working in a high traffic / quick turnaround environment

BFA or equivalent degree preferred.
Fine art background/experience a huge plus!

In your face, everyone who says there aren't great jobs here in Tucson. We'll wait for your apology.

Keep in mind, this particular gig might not be all glamour and unbridled creative output, however, as noted by this Jezebel.com commenter from 2011:

Lisa Frank is pretty legendary in Tucson as being the shittiest, bitchiest, meanest boss to ever grace the planet earth. The general consensus is that she is a terrible person. I used to work across the street from her headquarters building and I worked with a former Lisa Frank employee who confessed that it was as bad in there as everyone had heard. It is like a rainbow colored gulag in there. I'd rather lop my tit off with a rusty butter knife than take a job at Lisa Frank.

If anyone applies, let me know. I'd assume the application process is somewhat similar to applying for the Art Instruction School.
