Si Scott

Si Scott is a talented designer/typographer who creates beautiful graphics in black and white. His work has been published almost everywhere and his skills are flawless. As designers, we are constantly being inspired by other designers and the world around us. We should be looking for inspiration in order to push our limits, build up our skills, and remain passionate about what we do. Having a list of role models will keep us motivated and help us achieve our goals. In order to master a skill, we must practice it. I am constantly teaching myself new skills in the world of design, and I am always learning. Many designers are influenced by nature, music, art, food, etc. Finding an inspiration and an influence for your work is critical, because it gives you a focus, and motivates you to keep going. It’s important to create just for you…designers spend a lot of time creating for other people, but not themselves. If we just create for our clients, we will get burnt out and bored.

In an interview, Si Scott describes his inspiration: “Most of my inspiration comes from music – I am constantly listening to music while I work and the lyrics especially. I’m really into words!” Music inspires him to create more and influences his work as a designer and artist.

    I think music is a great motivator and source of inspiration. I’ve gotten a lot of my ideas just driving and listening to music.

    I love the typography he created, it looks very fluid. He’s a great designer to get inspiration from. And yes, we typically design for others haha; because if we start creating something to feed our soul it would be art and not design ;).
