Molly Anderson – Exploring the hearts and minds of the individuals in Team GT3!

Describe a typical GT3 working day in the life of Molly.

I tend to spend my day software hopping. From Outlook, to Excel, to InDesign, to Revit. It requires my brain to switch gears a lot. On a great day, I get to pull together a material board, figuring out which fabric works with what colour / texture / pattern, etc. Every day I learn something new and this is why I find my job so interesting.

Why did you become an Interior Designer?

Mainly because I loved Ikea as a child; walking around and peering into multiple different rooms that all have their own layout and colour schemes was fascinating to me. I have also always had an innate desire to make things for people. So design is my way of making things for as many people as possible.

How would you describe the culture of GT3?

The culture here is the epitome of how a modern business should be, trusting, non-hierarchal, inclusive, and inspirational.

If you didn’t take the Interior Design route, what other kind of career could you see yourself in?

I would have liked to be a Patisserie chef, designing all sorts of beautiful baked goods.

Do you have a favourite design style? If so, what would you say this is?

Dutch design. It’s like a Scandinavian design but with more character and bolder colour choices.

Tell us two things most people don’t know about you…

  1. I have lived in Huddersfield, York, Newcastle, London, Switzerland, Vancouver, and now Northumberland– so I identify with lots of places!
  2. I can stack straw bales on a JCB.
