personalized travel

In order to get a creative job at Free People, you are asked to do a project that expresses your creativity and understanding of the Free People aesthetic. It’s a really great way to show what you are capable of beyond a typical portfolio. So anyway, one of our accessories designers had hand made these super crafty luggage tags for her Free People interview. She tapped into how important travel is to the Free People girl, how inspiring it can be. Obvoiusly she was right on, got the job, and months later is seeing her creations sold in the Holiday Catalog! Check out the hand embellished tags for sale on

I checked out the tags on, they are superb!
Do you guys give specific parameters for the project or is it just about doing anything that feels Free People-ish?

Hi Andrea. They usually give some sort of parameters for interview projects. It typically is focused on the job you are applying for. Thanks for the comment!

I would love to send in my portfolio for review to the Home Office. I found this blog via Oh Joy!- a philly based designer who blogs about great design.
I am a designer/artist living in Philadelphia and would love to plug in my creative talents with your company. Any suggestions or information you can pass along would be greatly appreciated!
