Pheobe Scott, Design

How long have you been at Weber Shandwick and what do you do?

I’ve been at Weber since Feb 2015 and I work as part of the Design team in the Glasgow office, working on projects for Scottish Enterprise, Scottish Development International and Scotland Food and Drink etc.

How did you end up working at Weber Shandwick? 

It was fate, I was plucked from the sea of creatives via LinkedIn.

What do you enjoy most about working at Weber Shandwick?

The creative challenges that I face each day, the people that I work with and being part of this massive global network. Plus all the things that I learn from them!

What would you say has been your career highlight?

Working for Weber of course… along with designing publications for medical use, designing material for the London 2012 Bid and seeing my work in the real world such as on the billboard in train stations.

What would you say is the most enjoyable aspect of working in public relations/communications in Scotland?

Client satisfaction and the work that I produce is doing what its supposed to do and serving its purpose effectively.

Away from work, what do you like to do in your spare time?

Run, gym, pilates, eat and laugh (a lot!) And if I was living in a slightly hotter country, I would be practicing my wind surfing skills down the beach every weekend.

Who is the one person (in this industry or outside) you admire the most for how they communicate?

Without doubt, graphic designer Ken Garland.

Tell us something not many people know about you

I get hangry when I’m hungry! I turn into the HULK!

What do you consider to be your guilty pleasure(s)?

Watching the Kardashians on E and singing along to OneD. #sorrynotsorry

What was the last book you read and last film/boxset watched?

The last book was Us by David Nicholls and I’m working through the boxset of Vikings.

What was the last live event you attended?

I watched the Bannockburn 10K race. Does that count?

Favourite gif?

There are too many… here is one of them.

What would be your advice to someone entering the industry?

Work hard, accept criticism, always keep learning and never be too afriad to ask questions.
