A few weeks back (on March 1 to be precise) we celebrated a pretty big milestone around here: our mighty little shop turned 18. Now that we’ve crossed the all-important threshold, to 18 years old, we’re looking forward to exercising our rights, which in some cases involve very little actual exercise. Here’s a quick list … Continue reading We’re Legal!
Picture if you will a crowded dinner scene. Tables on tables of creative folk, convening as part of a yearly pilgrimage, lured by the possibility of endless trays of cheese, a cash bar, and the chance to bring home a few weighty pieces of metal that symbolize the best kind of industry acknowledgement amongst our … Continue reading Nutmegs and the Pink Tutu
You’d be surprised, really, at just how much we pay attention to numbers. Or maybe you wouldn’t. We are, after all, a shop full of nerds of varying degrees. But maybe it’s the kind of numbers we pay attention to that you’d find the most fascinating (besides all the important ones that lead to our … Continue reading Numbers
I’ve been saying this for a decade, or more. This week, it came true. Now I can ride a bicycle to work: roughly a mile. This is significant for so many reasons. Reason Number 1 I’ve spent over an entire year of my life: every second, of every minute, of every hour, of every day, … Continue reading One Day I Will Ride a Bike to Work

My father John T. Scott III, my partner Kristen Briner and I opened our agency 13 years ago. It’s hard to imagine that our great great grand children could one day be running the shop. It’s even harder to imagine what the world will be like in 140 years. These thoughts struck me as I … Continue reading 150 Years of Community
In May of 2006, a young man by the name of Michael Barnes joined our shop. He brought with him an embossed diploma from Salve Regina, a zippy can-do attitude, a modest background in graphic design, and a low-level food fetish. Fast forward 6 years, hundreds of projects, a boatload of happy clients, enamored and … Continue reading 6 Bronze Years
As I look out from my desk, down the sunlit hallway of our new Westport office, I can’t help but feel like we’re “home.” I grew up on Bridge Street, just over the Saugatuck river. I started washing dishes at Mario’s, as a Bedford 8th grader. I later bagged groceries at Peter’s Market, bussed tables … Continue reading Honey, We’re Home!
