It's been said that if you work at the Oh Joy office, you get pregnant within seconds! Ha. We're having a baby boom over here, and my designer, Angie, will be going on maternity leave in a few weeks. I thought I could do her job AND my job while she's away. But then I realized I was being a crazy person. So, I am looking for a talented textile designer to help fill-in while Angie is on maternity leave. This is a great chance to work at our studio, build your portfolio, and get to be part of designing a bunch of Oh Joy products for upcoming collections! You can see a sampling above of the work that you'd get to do!
