Meet the Team- Sarah Shields- Junior Designer

How long have you been at Trimcraft?

Just under a year 


What is your role within the company?

I am a Junior Designer


What is an average day like at Trimcraft?

Honestly, every day is different which is why I love it so much! Some days I get to design pretty patterns and cute characters to be featured on the products we sell; some days I get to make funky presentations to be shown to clients, and there are other days where I artwork products to be sent to the factories before heading to the stores.



What is the best thing about working at Trimcraft?

I really love the friendly environment that we all work in. Everyone gets on so well, we’re like a family! Again, work never gets boring because it is so different every day. Not to mention the cool ping pong table in the centre of our office!

What is your favourite Trimcraft Product and why?

I really love the First Edition Pick ‘n’ Mix paper pad! I love the colour palette used and the pretty patterns. I just think its super cute!


I also really love Kiss and Makeup. It’s so sassy and Pink - very ‘me!’


What’s your favourite part of working in a team?

I love the trendy team I work with, especially within the design team, it is so nice to get inspiration from each other. Everyone is so talented and it is always a pleasure to come to work. Everyone is so lovely, there is never a day that goes by when there isn’t a giggle or two.


What are your favourite hobbies?

I am really into performing arts. I have sung and danced pretty much all my life. I have been in a number of shows and sung solos in front of a large audiences. If I’m not involved in it myself, I will always make an effort to go and watch a performance nearby. If not, there is always singing loudly in the shower!

I also really love going to gigs. I have recently been to Leeds Fest and it was amazing – (minus the sunburn!)


What inspires you to be creative?

I love looking at what is out there and imagining what I could create with it. I have always had a passion for drawing and painting, I find it really relaxing. I love going to watch performances, gigs, art shows, and visiting art galleries. The Arts as a whole really inspire my designs. It’s amazing having the opportunity to see an idea develop from a sketch and come to life as a product. It’s wonderful to see and something I am really proud to be involved with.


What three words best describe you?

Blonde, girly, and creative


If you had a million pounds how would you spend it?

 I would probably go on a lot of holidays, and buy loads of clothes and of course a castle for me and Tom Hardy to live in!


Tell us something about yourself that would surprise us?

One of the shows I performed in was The Addams Family where I played the part of the oversized little boy Pugsley Addams. I had to wear a massive fat suit and a boys wig every night which was really funny and something completely against my own character. It was a great experience!
