EGD Studio Manager
Subject Matter Expert: Branded Experience Design & Wayfinding
Scott is an accomplished design professional with twenty years of design, creative direction, project management, and design engineering success. He specializes in both in-depth experiences with concept development and wayfinding master planning, as well as branded experience design and curation. Throughout his career, he has enjoyed completing a wide variety of significant capital projects.
Scott’s strengths include out-of-the-box thinking, strategic vision, cultivating relationships, and sharing the big picture with stakeholders. Some of the key elements he has designed range from the everyday to the obscure, cutting edge. He also has experience in creative direction and strategic planning of wayfinding mobile applications, interactive kiosk design, signage system design, environmental graphic design, donor recognition design, and landscape/lighting design.
Throughout the creative process, Scott effectively manages the iterative process, relationships, time, budgets, and assets. He believes that every visual or graphic element within the environment must be useful, serve a purpose and do so efficiently in an impactful and intuitive manner. There’s no need for waste, clutter, and useless or misleading information as signs are concerned. If they are present, each must have a resounding sentiment of courtesy, interest, and passion inherently within.
