Q&A with Scott
Take the most interesting project you have worked on recently: Why was it interesting?
My most interesting job of late has been to lead the rebrand of Kekst CNC and launch our new website, we have worked on video and photography in multiple locations. This process has allowed me to meet the wider Kekst CNC team who are a truly inspirational bunch.
What is the area of expertise in which you really stand out?
Having worked in the creative sector for over 20 years, I have a vast amount of experience in working with teams to produce the best most cost effective creative for my clients.
Who is the most impressive speaker you’ve ever heard?
I recently attended a seminar where Wayne Hemingway (English designer and co-founder of Red or Dead fashion label) was a keynote speaker, listening to his rise to fame and fortune was very endearing.
What has been the biggest change in the industry since you started working?
Believe it or not, when I first started in the creative industry digital was not highly used. Everything we did was hand crafted, so seeing the explosion of the internet and the use of digital technology has been something I have grasped with both hands.
What charity is closest to your heart?
There are many charities that are close to my heart but the ones that stand out are Sue Ryder, Macmillan Cancer Support, MNDA and NSPCC.
