Meet the George and Willy team.
We have always believed that a company is simply an extension of the people who are in it. Each morning we turn up at 7.30, unlock the studio - have a cup of tea and get excited about working with honest materials to create new products that are going to be around for generations to enjoy. We are all mates who share a passion for the products we make and encourage extracurricular projects outside of work (head over to the journal to see some of these unfold). A simple tradition we love is Hawaiian Friday, it is compulsory for everyone to turn up to work wearing a Hawaiian shirt and if you forget you have to buy a round of coffees.
Always wearing merino socks. Will loves designing new products and making existing ones even better. He makes sure everything looks good and works well.
George keeps the ethos of George & Willy high and can be found in the workshop.
Diligent and efficient, Phoebe gets stuff done. She's usually drinking tea and talking to people around the world.
When Rosie isn't representing New Zealand in hockey, she's helping us out around the workshop and answering customer questions.
Frida/FreddyHead of Morale
Frida/Freddy is still learning the ropes, but she can typically be found snoozing, chewing something questionable or improving everyone's day.
Always smiling, Will keeps George and Willy exciting and is usually found sharing our tools with everyone around the world.
Can be found with a camera in hand, creating beautiful content. Always planning an adventure and biking or surfing his way around New Zealand.
"We're inspired by honest materials, functional design and solving problems. We love everything we do at George and Willy, every step is exciting."
George, Co Founder
Productivity is a main focus for any workspace. If you are more efficient in your work, you get more done in less time and so have more time for other things. Getting stuff done feels good.
Will, Co Founder
