Hello, we are Botticelli Ceramics! We consist of a two-person team, that being Marc Armitano and Caroline Moley, and we sell one of a kind handmade ceramic pieces. What makes us special beyond our designs, which you can check out on our website (https://www.botticelliceramics.com), is that each piece is handcrafted and made personally by Marc, our sole ceramicist. So far we have been featured in Cultured Magazine, New York Times Style Magazine, Domino Magazine, Architectural Digest, W Magazine, and Financial Times to name a few. You may have also seen us through John Derian Company, who is carries us in its stores. All that being said, we are still quite new and we are most definitely still a growing business, learning to navigate and best enable our brand, customers, marketing, partnerships, etc. in both the retail and art worlds. As a result, there is truly never a dull moment. We are two young and creative New Yorkers who are always moving and striving to be our best. You can read more about how we started on our "Our Story" page.
This Spring of 2020, we are looking for a Creative Business and Brand Development Intern who is willing to be dynamic and on his or her toes at all times. We request that he or she is an undergrad in NYC currently attending a University, a creative, able to write, able to use basic Photoshop and other applications, and knows how to curate social media content (this can simply pertain to one's personal accounts).
In this role you will be working mostly with our Head of Creative Business and Brand Development, Marketing, and Partnerships. You will be asked to work within many different formats and will wear an array of hats as if you were also starting your own brand. You will be tasked with jobs revolving around business operations, marketing, finance, partnerships, sales, website design and management, social media, basic photography, communications (writing and PR), event planning, client-facing tasks, shipments, and more that will come as you work with us. In other words, you will be doing practically everything other than making the ceramic pieces.
This is a perfect opportunity to see what it is like to start your own brand in New York City as a young, hungry, and creative individual. You will learn A LOT (trust us) and if you love all things art and are interested in brand development and creation, this is the internship for you.
Furthermore, not only will you work with Marc and Caroline, but you will also have access to Botticelli Ceramics' many connections, such as the publications listed above and names and fashion brands like Bode, Matches Fashion, Linder, Nordstrom, and John Derian Company to name a few.
This internship is unpaid however because it is meant for University students, you will recieve college credit. Furthermore, this internship is designed for students who will be in their second semester of school so its hours will be scheduled around your classes and life at school. All transportation and meals will be paid for during working hours. We will also offer up the connections we have with different names and brands to help build your resume and network as college student and young professional.
Please simply put everything that is asked of you on the form and feel free to add more items like your portfolio, website, recommendations, and whatever else you think demonstrates that you are a dynamic, creative, and hardworking person. Have fun with it! We hope to hear from you soon!
