Tilly wfh diaries

Welcome to the Missguided Working From Home diaries, a series where we are discussing what life is REALLY like during lockdown. Each week we are spending a day with a different team member from Missguided HQ, to find out their working routine.

Although most of our staff are working 100% at home, there’s still a few team members that can’t do their roles entirely from home. This includes our studio staff and our Design team.

WE SPENT A DAY WITH Tilly, OUR assistant designer…

This week we caught up with Tilly, an Assistant Designer at Missguided. Tilly is 23 and has worked at Missguided since she graduated from uni two years ago. As an assistant designer, she works across our Missguided range and our men’s brand (Mennace). She recently moved into a new apartment in Manchester, so is currently locked down with her flatmate.

Take a look at Tilly’s routine

  • I usually go into the office once or twice a week depending on what my tasks are like that week
  • I get up around 6/6:30 – some mornings I’m lost to the world of Tik Tok and IG but others I’m good and start off productively 
  • I try and start my day off with an hour’s walk in the morning to get some fresh air and wake my mind up for the day
  • On the Missguided side I now focus on assisting in the world of collabs and brands – so anything from Playboy to the newest influencer collab.
  • My days really vary – whether it be helping work into a new Playboy range or pulling together an influencer lookbook or working on the newest licensing 
  • My role also crosses over into the campaign world and I’ve been lucky enough to assist on many of our campaigns over the last few years, including shooting Playboy in LA, Party In Paris and New Season shoots etc

  •  Inspiration and research always plays a big part of my day – the design team are constantly pinging things to our IG group of things we love
  • Most days will have a meeting or two slotted in which is a great change from talking to myself in lockdown
  • I usually end up working late especially if I’m in the office because its nice to be in a different environment and what else is there to do in 2021?

  • I spend the rest of my night either rewatching Gossip Girl (for the 7th time and Chuck Bass will never not be the love of my life) or a new series I will of banged on Netflix (at the minute its Behind her eyes and woweeee sensational)
  • I go to bed way too late and the cycle begins again
