Our introductory series of interviews now sets its sights on Sophie Scott. A skater-girl, Lake District native and feline fanatic, Sophie is more than simply our head of design, she's also the body. That's a bad metaphor for the fact she is the all-seeing eye for all things design and development, from bringing the early ideation stage into something with a semblance of order, to ensuring the finished product you see on this website is as close to our vision as possible.
Like many creative people, she is not a morning person and she is more than capable of a cutting remark. Bear that in mind when reading some of her answers.
Who are you?
What do you do?
I’m Head of Design - essentially the designer, product developer and production manager rolled into one.
Where are you from originally?
Ulverston, South Lakes massive.
What does a normal day look like to you?
I wake up at 5am and hit the gym for a good 3 hours then leisurely stroll to the train station, making sure I arrive at work early doors. Throughout the day, it’s important to keep my head down and not distract anyone to avoid any procrastination. Then I head home and get an early night, ready for the sun to rise again. This routine is sure to keep your creativity alive.
Where is your favourite place in the outdoors?
I’ve recently moved to Todmorden and I’m just gonna throw it out there and say the whole town is my new favourite place as it feels like home away from home…and it’s got bare lit countryside n that.
If you could have a superpower, what would it be?
Favourite Hikerdelic item?
At the moment the worker pants! The fit is great for men and women which I’ve never really found when buying men’s pants before (and I’m pretty short!)
When did you first hear about Hikerdelic?
I think I came across it on Instagram around 2018/19 then spent about 6 months plucking up the courage to DM’d and ask for a job!
Tell us a joke.
The price of my commute.
