Congratulations! You've found the website for Scott Andrew Hunt (he/him/his), award-winning creative team leader and maker with over 20 years of professional concepting, design, strategy and marketing experience with a focus on social media and digital advertising.
My husband had to move my site to a new server (!), and that meant a chance to CLEAN HOUSE, rebuild and not migrate everything from my old site. So... I apologize if you've been to my site before and can't find something that you've seen previously. Trust me, it's stored away safely.
Stay awhile, take a look around, and hit me up if you have a project we can collab on!
A note about the icons you'll see on my site: No, there isn't a problem with your browser. The icons are made of cut paper. I love real, tangible things crossing over into the digital world, and as a Maker I had to do something fun for my own site.
I hand-cut each one with an X-Acto knife and photograph them on the rig I have at home that captures the shadows and depth of the layers of paper.
The photos below show some of the in-progress "icon tiles" before they're finished, shot and added to the site. The first four (technically five) I made back in 2017 were for Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn.
I made two versions for Instagram because sometimes I needed the white logo against a dark or really colorful background.
I've since added a bunch of new tiles at the start of 2024 and updated Facebook's to their newer, centered "f" version as well as using a brighter blue paper than I used for the original.
I put off replacing "Twitter" with "X" for as long as I could... BUT I was able to make it kind-of cool by using a piece of felt for the background. I miss the blue bird, though.
And yes, TikTok is <slightly> larger because the thin paper I used for the fluorescents in the icon kept tearing when I cut it at the smaller size. The joys of working with paper...
You'll get bored quickly... it's a lot of photos of my adorable husband, our kids and our rescue dog, Porter.
