Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $40

Creative/Technical/Strategic describes my work.

Sure, I can provide something professional, potent and pretty using aesthetic principles. However, my training and experience adds depth into a design. Behind the beauty made with point, line, shape, plane, texture, color, tone and negative space there is engineering.

I control the eye path and drive a brand's message home by leveraging genre, culture and/or market nuances in order to tip emotion. These elements are exploited in the design for establishing (in this order) impact, clarity,...

Service Description

Who am I?

My real name is Anthony Underwood, but I’m also known in my field as “Scout” and I live “off-grid-but-online” in an eco-village in Belize.

I’ve warmly left the halls of these institutions to seek ways to contribute to greener efforts, to pursue better health and to enjoy freedoms forgotten in Orange County, California where I used to reside. I feel I can be more focused, comfortable and creative from here in Belize thanks to the web.

What have I done?

In the beginning years of my career I have started three creative companies which have given me profound firsthand experience with printing, advertising, graphic design, industrial design, experiential design, art direction, web development, social software architect and most importantly: brand building. This empirical wisdom carried me into higher positions of marketing...
