Wow, wow, wow! As usual, when Mayesh tries something different, we have no idea how it is going to go. And once again, we had so many great people step up to the plate and throw their hat into the ring for our latest Mayesh Design Star contest! Thank you to all who entered – we greatly appreciate all of the time and consideration you put into your entry. After combing through the submissions – watching the videos, looking at the portfolios and reviewing the workshop outlines – I’m happy to say that we selected the 2017 Mayesh Design Star!
We have had the pleasure of working with this year’s winner on a couple occasions – she has done a Mayesh Instagram Takeover and an interview. She is a big Mayesh supported and is always giving us love on social media (long before we started the contest). Our star is a Chapel Designer that has been featured on all of the top blogs with a style that is very on trend. Also, I love that her shop has been around for 50 years and she helped resurrect and rebrand a beloved family business.
Ladies and gentlemen, I have the great pleasure of introducing Christy Hulsey, of Colonial House of Flowers, our 2017 Mayesh Design Star!! Congratulations Christy!
My team will be working with Christy on the workshop details and we will post the Mayesh Design Star workshop schedule very soon! Stay tuned. In the meantime, check out Christy’s video:
Enter to become our 2017 Mayesh Design Star! We are shaking things up again. Educational floral workshops are hot, and we think it’s time to join the fun! We are looking for someone to lead a series of workshops that will take place at several of our locations throughout the year, as well as create several time lapse-style design videos to share with our customers.
So how is this going to work? To enter, you will need to submit a detailed outline for a 1-day workshop, a design portfolio, and a short video showcasing your sparkling personality. We don’t want to put too many parameters around the entry materials as we don’t want to limit your imagination. You are an artist and we want you to be just that!
We will select our favorite designer for the job and schedule 4 or more workshops for the following year at select Mayesh locations. The prize is not a trip this year, but rather a percentage of the revenue collected from the workshop registrations, with a potential of bringing home up to $5,000 or more!
We will create time-lapse style design videos to music – no talking, just you flexing your creative muscles and creating something awesome! Keep in mind you will be talking to a group of up to 25 enthusiastic flower design lovers at each workshop and we want you to be comfortable doing so. Whether you are an industry veteran who has been involved with workshops and teaching for years or you would like to get into the workshop scene, but just haven’t done it yet, we think this is an amazing opportunity to spread your design wings.
