Doll Designers and Makers

Experience, Skills, and Personality Traits

Experience requirements vary for doll designers and makers depending on their specific employment situation. Self-employed individuals may simply design and create some dolls and go sell them at a craft fair. They need business and marketing skills to succeed. Those seeking jobs at toy or doll manufactures need some experience, whether as an apprentice or assistant doll designer. In many cases, education will be accepted in lieu of experience. A portfolio of designs will be especially helpful. Get experience by arranging an internship while you are still in school. An internship will help you to learn about various design careers and help you to develop your professional network.
