scott a. cook | firstname.lastname@example.org | orlando, fl ABOUT SAC Scott has a passion for telling stories. With more than 15 years in the digimedia design field and 32 years of producing live theatre, he has combined these two creative mediums into a unique skill set that allows him to create compelling visual stories that effectively attract an audience - be it in print, package, digital or on stage. Through the art of digimedia authoring with graphic design and video, Scott creates fresh, out-of-the-box marketing and advertising concepts that are ideal for corporate and entertainment industries. His work with Valencia College and University of Central Florida won him several awards and accolades. He currently serves on the Valencia College Digimedia Advisory Board and is the President & Artistic Producer of TheatreWorks Florida. IMAGINATION = CREATION DARE TO DREAM... It's all about the story. Dreams begin with an idea that make their way to a concept that materialize on paper as a sketch then blossom into something wonderful. Color. Fonts. Effects. Imagery. Motion. Action. Reaction. That's storytelling. OUTSIDE THE BOX COLLABORATION… As a forward thinking artist, Scott works hand in hand with a client closely to ensure the very best quality, professional results. He encourages alternative creative thinking to help the final product stand out in the market. His process is 80% preparation, 20% implementation. Creative & marketing research, concept development, previsuals, multiple design versions and close communications are just a few of the many visual problem solving skills Scott brings to the creative table.
