We’re looking for an experienced artist rep/agent to join us in our quest to solidify letter-focused art and design as an asset on equal footing with illustration, photography, and the like. We are a collective of artists, letterers, and type designers executing letter-based solutions for clients of all sizes, all over the world, and we need your help.
The ideal candidate has a background representing artists and designers in project negotiations, contracts and invoicing, new business development, etc. You might also have been a studio/office manager for a creative studio or agency in the past. A strong familiarity with the design and creative industry is a major plus, with knowledge of current pricing standards and practices around usage rights and licensing.
As the ALFA Artist Representative, you will be responsible for the professional representation of a small, focused group of letter-focused artists and designers at the top of their respective fields. You will handle all incoming inquiries through our site, matching projects with designers, negotiating project fees and terms, and facilitating contracts and invoicing.
You will also be empowered to seek out new projects and business ventures for members of our roster, giving you the ability to fully control your earning potential and take ownership in the growth of this new, important agency.
As we’re still just in the early days of this amazing ride, this position will start as a fully commission-based role. You will earn a percentage of the total project fee for every gig you’re involved with, and an even higher percentage of business that you proactively develop and secure for our artists. Your income will be limited only by your negotiation skills and your outreach efforts.
This role could certainly begin as a part-time side engagement for the right candidate, while we develop this group into the authoritative powerhouse it has the potential to be.
You will help mold and shape this agency into an inimitable source for the best talent in the world and the strongest advocate for the value of custom, beautiful letter work.
We’d love to hear how you might go about doing that, so if you believe you’re the one for the gig, fill out the simple form via the Apply Now button to the left (above on mobile).
