Become a Design Stories contributor!

Are you a writer or photographer with a passion for design? Or perhaps a duo with a sense for style and an established routine for creating stories ready for publication? We are seeking freelance contributors to Finnish Design Shop's own Design Stories online publication.

Become a Design Stories contributor

FINNISH DESIGN SHOP is a globally operating online shop, and we want to tell our customers and readers of Design Stories about interesting and topical issues in Finland and around the world. Whether it's a café selling cinnamon rolls in New York, a newly opened restaurant in Helsinki, an interesting architectural destination in Tokyo or a home in Barcelona decorated in Scandinavian style – as our contributor, you will let us know and are prepared to write a story about it. We may also order an article or photos from you if we have already discovered something we want to cover.

We expect you to have:

• Initiative, accuracy and efficiency
• Experience in content marketing
• A proven track record in texts/photos published in print or online media.

We expect our writers to have an excellent command of English or Finnish and experience in creating commercial and/or editorial content. We expect our photographers to produce high quality, and to have a sense of style and an eye for detail. An interest in design and architecture is considered an asset.

As a contributor, you will:

• Be paid for any published texts and photos
• Get a discount on Finnish Design Shop products
• Get readers to your stories worldwide through Finnish Design Shop's channels.
