Hello, my name is Scott … but somehow most people just call me “Ford” so, you know … please do! Welcome to my website. I’m a freelance art director based in Hollywood, CA where I have served the business community for over 20 years. Please check out these links to get to know me better!
What drives me is to help companies and nonprofit organizations find creative ways to leverage their own personal uniqueness in the marketplace of ideas, to help them express the creativity of their venture through their brand messaging and social media. I have helped many corporations, small businesses, nonprofits and startups produce top creative content for their strategic business goals. I’ve done so with eye-catching designs for major brands such as: Disney, Universal Studios, Paramount Pictures, iTV Network, CatchTV, Skechers, City of Los Angeles, Allstate, Intel, SAP, Digital Planet, LA Weekly, Movieline magazine, The Los Angeles Times Magazine, Mattel, Von Dutch, Denimhead, Skechers, Kidspace Children’s Museum, Hollywood Central Park, Outfest Film Festival, Famcom, CreSenda Wireless, Longview Global Advisors, Satcon, Media Creature and many other small businesses, nonprofits and startups. Drop me a line and let’s talk about your creative plans!
I can do a variety of looks and am extremely flexible
Modern designs with lots of space
Clean & Simple
Modest use of color, clean edges and lots of white space have long been the look-and-feel of what we consider modern, and we are reminded of how the clean white walls of an art gallery quietly showcase it’s occupants.
Fashion & street culture
Urban & Metro
A mashup of influence from fashion, music, movies, dance and street art, America’s visual urban landscape can be a virtual design salad of just about anything with fierce color and textures.
Fun designs for kids and adults who are really kids
Young & Fun
For kids, everything is larger than life. Captivating colors along with plenty of movement needed to get on the visual radar of most. But it is the idea of learning through play that holds their attention, perhaps forever.
Nobody has wondered more about this than me 😉
