Introducing Ella - The Gamification Awards
1st August 2019

Hello everyone!
So, as a new member of the team, I feel I should introduce myself to you all.

Ella Gilchrist - The Gamification Awards

I am Ella and I am the Social Media and Content Creator for The Gamification Awards. I have just started here as an intern after completing my final year at university studying BA Hons Textiles with Business Studies. During my time at university I specialised in printed textiles, where I designed printed fabrics for fashion. I have always been interested in fashion, it has been something that has fascinated me since a very young age (I used to beg my Mum to let me buy what I called ‘Clip Clop’ shoes and clip on earrings from the local shop to then wear home and pretend I was on a catwalk!).

My final collection at university focused on the European refugee crisis. I used this opportunity, as a creative, to raise awareness of an issue that I am extremely passionate about. As I had already decided I didn’t want to go into print design after university, I thought this would be the best way to keep myself interested and motivated throughout the final 9 months of my degree. It all paid off in the end, and I will be graduating (next week) with a first-class degree!

So how did I end up at The Gamification Awards?

During my final year of university, I have been working for a sustainable fashion brand based in Brighton, called The Emperor’s Old Clothes. Here, I work as a marketing assistant and help create content for their Instagram page, blogs, products on the website, Pinterest account and a whole lot more!

Since doing this role, I discovered how interested I was in marketing in general. I enjoy seeing what works (or what doesn’t!) and adjusting the content to accommodate for different customers and viewers. As I am a creative person, I love to create content and produce images which can be used and viewed by so many different kinds of people.

So, when I saw that The Gamification Awards were looking for an intern to help with their social media and content creating, I jumped at the chance to apply!

Now, I must admit, I don’t know a huge amount about gamification…but I am a keen learner and I am excited to learn more about the industry during the next few months. I feel I am in safe hands with Pete, Kira and Vasilis who have already shared a lot of their knowledge with me and made me feel very welcome into the gamification world.

I am looking forward to interviewing, meeting, creating and connecting with everyone involved with The Gamification Awards and beyond! So, on that note, look out for any new content, give it a like and a share and let’s spread the word about The Gamification Awards!
