I am an illustrator based in Bath. I studied at Brunel College, Bristol specialising in Illustration and Visual Communication. I then worked as a Graphic Designer for a variety of companies and carried out some freelance illustration work. I finally took the plunge in August 2013 and set up my own illustration business.

My experience of working with a wide variety of clients over the past 19 years has enabled me to develop good customer communication skills. I really enjoy working with people to achieve the illustration that they require.

I generally work in Adobe Illustrator. All of my vector artwork starts out as hand drawn pencil sketches. I then scan the drawings, colour and finish in Adobe Illustrator. My work has included large-scale art for public buildings, book illustrations, greetings cards, game art and illustrated diagrams.

why pantone 304, illustrators Bath, UK

Why did I decide to use Pantone 304 as my corporate brand colour?

Well if you’d like to know, this is why: Between 1960 – 1965 Fender guitars had (introduced) in my opinion, a very cool colour in their colour scheme – Daphne Blue. The Fender Daphne Blue colour was inspired by the blue American Cadillac. In the early 1960s, a man named Lawrence Herbert was driving to work in his blue American Cadillac with cherry red seats. He was trying to resolve a problem, a “universal colour system” in which each shade of colour had its own reference number. He named his company Pantone print company. So, my favourite guitar colour is also the colour of the car driven by the man who invented Pantone colours! This is why I chose Pantone 304, and of course why I want a Daphne Blue guitar!

  • “Everyone at St Barnabas Church Southdown is really thrilled with Scott’s work. We had seen the large banners he had designed to be displayed on the tower of St Philip and St James Church Odd Down, and thought his style would fit perfectly with ideas we had for some art work on the walk-way between our church and church hall. So we got in touch. It was great the way he took inspiration from our stained glass window to base the new design on. We were able to realise his design thanks to a grant from Bath Abbey Mission Links Fund and thanks to a summer community project organised by Bath Youth for Christ. The finished banner is seen by all who use the local schools, play park and bus route, and we know it generates lots of positive conversations!”

I would not hesitate to recommend him and look forward to a long and continued creative relationship with his company.”
