Since returning from Europe, Scott's clients have included BMW subsidiary Design-works/USA, Raleigh Bicycles, Mattel Toys, Patagonia, Minority Report feature film, Nike, Rock Shox, Universal Studios, Angel Studios and Fiat, to name a few. Today he continues to teach drawing at Art Center College of Design. Recently, Scott launched Design Studio Press, a publishing company dedicated to inspiring and educational art books and DVDs.

  • "Definitely one of the finer designers of our generation. Scott's innovative designs bridge the gap between today's fiction and tomorrow's science. His attention to detail is sometimes mind blowing... but he is not somebody to keeps it all to himself. He is so concerned with teaching his knowledge to others that it makes him one of the top educators in digital and traditional art."
