Hi, my name is Philippa Wallis Scowcroft. Philippa means lover of horses. Wallis means my parents are British. Scowcroft means “a piece of enclosed land” or something. And that's why I go by Pip.

Walter Thompson, and SID LEE, on brands including vitaminwater, Dentyne, Google, Scotties, Blue Goose Pure Foods, Winners, Marshalls, HomeSense, Shoppers Drug Mart, Walmart, Sport Chek, Mark's, Mazda, BMW, Moosehead, Seagram's VO Whisky, Subway, H&R Block, PC Financial, HSBC, CIBC, Air Canada, SickKids, Canadian Cancer Society, and the Canadian Film Fest. Obligatory awards recap: Cannes Lions Shortlist (Radio), ADCC (Best Copywriting Silver/Radio), LIA (Gold+Silver/Radio), Applied Arts (Branding), D&AD (Branding), Carte Blanche (Finalist).
In 2016 I went freelance to bring Good Words to brands I believe in—Earth Rated, Wild Leaf, and Shopify to name a few.
When I’m not writing you’ll find me reading, chasing squirrels out of the garden with a spray bottle, or snoring in savasana. Namaste.
