Gigi Sproul, Designer
I began working as a designer for Mrs. Grossman's when it was a very small company. This was back in the '80s and we probably had fewer than 25 employees. Later we occupied a series of old Victorian houses in San Rafael and now, we're in this spacious 110,000-square-foot building in Petaluma. I've watched this company change and grow, and have enjoyed being part of the process.
My favorite stickers to design are ones with lots of personality. If they make me laugh when I am drawing them, I know I'm on the right track.
The inspiration for my work comes in all forms and sizes. A casual conversation can spark a new idea; a walk on the beach and really looking at what's around you can be very exciting. I never know when inspiration will strike, but I try to be open to it at all times.
