Meet our team - Ellie, Production Assistant
Before working at G&G, what was the most unusual or interesting job you've ever had?
Working at Fear at Avon Valley. I was a scare actor in one of the mazes, where I had to be an infected alien creature. It was interesting having to learn how to move around and make inhuman noises to suit the atmosphere and the theme/story of the maze! It’s weirdly enjoyable to watch people be scared of you!
What does your job entail?
- Embroidering and printing designs onto orders
- Picking the blank garms before they have your designs put on them
- Packing and shipping orders
- Sewing labels
What's your favourite part about the job and working for G&G?
I didn't have much knowledge with fashion and textiles before working here and so being able to learn how to embroider, print and sew onto garments is very exciting. I'm always learning something new. It’s lovely to be able to see the garments I've embroidered or printed on being worn!
What are 3 words to describe G&G?
Vibrant, motivated and inclusive.
Working on your designs
What keeps you motivated?
Knowing that the orders I’m making will be received by people who are excited to wear them!
While I work I like listening to a good, upbeat playlist or an interesting podcast.
