The saying “Relationships are key” has followed Scott throughout his career and is noticeable with every interaction he has whether it be with clients or peers.

He observes his team to ensure they have what they need in order to get the job done. His trust in his team enriches their ability to produce an overall successful product. Scott values the bond created when design services and the unique personal decisions of each client intertwine. He revels in witnessing the use of the end product and the abundant client satisfaction that is sure to follow.
