I had to put all those unused chemistry credits to use somehow. This brand/hiring kit smashes together my fascination with paper crafts and love of really simple science experiments I did when I was a child.
I hope you still remember your chemical structures from ochem class or this might be a tough one to sell.
A little sugar, spice, and everything nice.
These are a set of stickers used on envelopes sent to possible employers. Mysterious packages that show up at your door are pretty scary, so why not make them scary fun!
Inside my "element" of surprise hire me kit is a newsprint portfolio filled with layers of transparency and texture. I wanted to make sure there was a good mix of technical precision and craft. Oh, and make it Oregon rain-proof.
Handcrafted business cards help me control how people interact with them. Under a layer of tracing paper, the card can be pulled out to reveal a hidden symbol between the flasks. Another "element" of surprise. See where I'm going with this?
Leave behind gifts are hand painted volumetric flasks repurposed into small flower vases. The sturdy and cleaned pieces of glassware are nestled in a bed of sheets from my college ochem lab notebook.
Small booklets show collections of works that I've done for fun.
