Editorial floral designers will work alone for the majority of the year, but will bring on a team of employees or freelancers to bring each design to fruition. Although they are hired by some kind of producer to bring a vision to life, often they are hired because their style is trusted and respected, so communication with the client won’t be overbearing.
Editorial floral designers tend to have ample free time throughout parts of the year, with large projects sweeping in and taking over months at a time.
Within this career path you may be asked to travel for new projects. Flexibility to travel may be required, unless you live in a city with plenty of projects.
This career is great for artists, folks who have children and want to have fairly flexible schedules throughout the year, and for highly skilled and experienced florists.
