Dream...


Everyone has a dream job. Pretty high on my list would be working as a display coordinator at Anthropologie. A couple of years ago I was in NYC with my friend Meg for an art teacher's conference and everyone was talking about the displays at the Anthropologie store at Rockefeller Center. Meg snapped some photos (one is above) when we were there and I was reminded of them yesterday when I saw some photos posted on Apartment Therapy SF (below).



These inspired me to search for more, so here you go! The photos below are from platinumblondelife...

So, what do you think? A dream job...right?

Absolutely a dream job! Maybe a little pressure too, to keep the amazing ideas coming, but probably well worth it to see your little scenes like these on display.

Gorgeous.
Let me send you my resume. If you get that job, I want in (even if it is as an assistant ;-) That has always been on my fantasy job list.

Wow, how lovely. We don't have that store in my city (wishes). Those displays are awe inducing.

anthropologie's window displays...sigh...such beauty.
i've worked in this field before as a freelancer...so fun when working with a visual manager who can execute their creative ideas via a store window! amazing shots.

Most definately!! Also, a photo shoot designer in exotic locales, yes?

Absolutely amazing displays. I guess every job that demands creativity is my ideal dream job.

I have a friend who had that dream job and she hated every day of it. She had a staff of welders and artists and a warehouse, but she was expected to create sculptures and displays on an almost nonexistent budget and very limited time. She quit after a year. What I would love is for you to have your own shop - sell the vintage finds and have art exhibits and create amazing window displays for us!

i thought so too, untill i discovered that anthropologie/urbanoutfitters is the evil empire of trend.
yes they create a beautiful environment, but they don't value their employees and they consider every one of them disposable. its so sad. i have bile in my throat everytime i walk into an anthro store now, even though its always beautiful. it just reeks. sorry to burst your bubble. the best part about it is to see what ideas you can incorporate into your environment.

*sigh*

Agreed with Nancy. Unfortunately, my friend had the dream job for about a year and echoed the same frustrations. Adding though that the marketing department makes all of the designs and so not only do you get no budget and no time, but very little creative leniency.

It sounds like this would be a better job at a different place. So perhaps that's what I'll imagine instead. :)

I love the folded books. I tried some a while ago, but this gives me a whole lot more inspiration!

the displays are magical, but I know a bunch of people who have or do visual display and it isn't all it is cracked up to be...though what they make is amazing

i interned in the visual department of Anthro for a semester and it was amazing! although there is an "inspiration" packet sent to display coordinators, they are still given a pretty decent amount of creative freedom. everyday is like a play day! although, i heard a lot of complaints about the salary and the girls on staff were usually there no later than six am. still, definitely a great job with a company that really embraces creativity.
