Once upon a tide, Acoustic Wave was created by me, Vicky Watt.
In a seashell, I love helping people to surf. (metaphorically). I feel there's a better way to live than being pushed around by ever changing currents and believe in embracing a free-spirited, delight-fuelled, work-life flow.
It's something I discovered by taking the long way round...
I'd been immersed in a media career at a Scottish radio network - as a producer, voice artist, pa and presenter - for more than a decade. When the urban lifestyle lost its lustre, I quit my job, sold up, packed up and took some time out to travel, living out of a camper van for almost a year.
Free-wheelin', I reconnected with a long-held dream. I wanted to earn a living, living by the sea.
One sunny day, I rolled into a cute fishing village on Scotland's beautiful east coast - and dropped anchor. The next step was figuring out how to do fulfilling work, while adopting a simpler, more relaxed lifestyle. Hit by a wave of inspiration, I finally launched Acoustic Wave. Now, within the role of Creative Producer, I'm a voice artist, writer and compulsive celebrant for uplifting brands.
In my experience, living in harmony with your talents and passions is what it really means to be going with the flow. So, I now encourage everyone to bring their own natural flow of creativity and communication to the surface. In particular, I support clients via my professional experience in media, marketing and entertainment: helping people to create and communicate with clarity and confidence.
The studio was also born out of a desire to celebrate simple pleasures & positive ideals in everyday life. It's an ethos I believe can have a ripple effect...
For me, simple pleasures include awesome music & art, inspiring words, delicious food, good company and natural beauty. Also, I'm guided by the positive ideals of thinking globally, acting locally, living honestly, showing gratitude and being the change.
With this in mind, my clients include national charities and leading brands, artists, artisan producers, musicians, coastal cafes, a gift shop & art gallery, vintage event specialists, boutique markets, purveyors of highland hospitality and skilled craftsmen.
I especially love working with people whose ideals, purpose, services and products go beyond making a profit - towards creating a positive impact in our communities and on our planet.
