ABOUT THE JOB
+ You'll be owning the production of the first run of Hustle and Play HYPE cards-- highly-designed, laser-etched aluminum business cards-- to fill preorders placed during our current crowd-funding campaign [[campaign.hustleandplay.com]].
+ Once you’re acquainted with the laser and machinery, we expect you to identify issues that need to be addressed and, without much guidance, do what needs to be done.
+ Hustle and Play will be moving aggressively through many iterations of product design: bringing products from being just ideas to prototypes to being ready-for-release, and you will be encouraged to contribute original design perspective, consumer insight, and innovative marketing tactics along the way.
+ As a member of a small start-up team, you will be asked to do various and ever-changing tasks each day. They will range from building marketing campaigns to making Home Depot trips to planning studio parties to managing social media outlets. Be prepared to learn and get your hands dirty!

+ Mark is the resident graphic designer and videographer.
+ Rehan is the house audio engineer for the other entity of Hustle and Play, the music production side.
+ Kelly, the summer marketing associate, has assisted in the launch of the studio, and will be leaving at the end of August. You will be filling this role.
