Welcome to ScottAG. I would like to take the opportunity to introduce, or re-introduce ourselves and our firm. Our work has carried us around the globe the past several years. We look forward to working with you on projects in our backyard or yours.
ScottAG is the only Design/Build Environmental Graphics & Signage firm on the West Coast of the United States. We design, fabricate and implement innovative, engaging signage and identity programs for a wide range of projects. Our unique studio approach includes designers and fabricators working side-by-side to provide unparalleled value for our clients. Our project management staff directs each project with an emphasis on maintaining a clear vision of the design, schedule and budget.
We offer our expertise at many different levels to a wide array of clients. We work with project owners, developers, architects and facilities managers in the development and implementation of complete environmental graphics programs; project research, theming and site marketing; project management; fabrication design and detailing; fabricating architectural elements; developing project entitlement and tenant signage guidelines.
Our approach to environmental graphic design defines two facets for every project; a marketing/branding story and a functional hierarchy. The marketing/branding perspective of a project defines the customer, potential buyer or resident's perception of the project. The functional aspects of a project drive the process of delivering the appropriate message to the customer in a clear and coordinated way. Bringing these elements into harmony is the essence of our craft.
Every project has a story, a soul. This story transcends typography, color and other graphic design conventions. A project in the built environment has more than three dimensions. The identity and graphics developed for a project must bring all of these elements together. Our experience coordinating and collaborating with architects, land planners, and marketing consultants allows us to fuse our work with every component of a project. Often our work includes the design and development of architectural features such as fountains, fireplaces, FF&E elements, handrails, murals and color studies.
The functional requirements for project identity, directional graphics, code and safety related signage is approached with careful study and research. The development of a complete sign program for a project requires review of customer behavior, planned or existing physical conditions, and local codes. We have developed over 400 complete sign programs in the past 10 years. Our projects have ranged from regional malls to planned main streets, wineries and hospitality to mixed-use retail centers, planned communities to public parks, airports to multi-modal transit systems. There is no challenge too big or too small for our expertise and craftsmanship.
Begun as a local sign shop in 1909, ScottAG has been built around a legacy of expert craftsmanship. In the early 1970's, the firm began to focus it’s attention on the development of sign systems in order to meet the growing needs of an increasingly complex urban environment. The firm evolved into a full service, Environmental Graphic Design firm and design/build company, utilizing our decades of sign business experience as the foundation of the sign program development process.
We are 100 years old and looking forward to our next century with great enthusiasm. Our passion for our craft and our commitment to bring value to your project are our hallmarks. I look forward to bringing this energy to your next project.
