Edinburgh communications consultancy Teviot has strengthened its design capability, appointing a senior designer as part of its young in-house team.
The group, which has just won the contract to design and research the 1996 Scottish House Condition Survey for Scottish Homes, has poached Emma Peters from London-based Associates in Advertising. Peters, who joins as senior designer, was previously an art director.
Managing director Craig Hall says Peters’ appointment was intended to end the firm’s recent problems gaining a sufficiently experienced design team. “It’s always been our policy to hire the youngest people possible, the most creative people possible. But in the not too dim and distant past we’ve had a few middleweights in the design team who have either left, or we have asked to leave.” He says Peters’ background, which includes work with British Steel, GE Capital and NatWest would add the right skills to the team.
Kate Laing continues to head up the team as the firm’s head of design.
The firm is also strengthening its new business team with the appointment of Neil Cunnigham, who previously handled new business for the Edinburgh International Conference Centre.
