Hello, my name is Scott Evans. I’m a digital designer/developer with interests in interaction, usability and interface design. I believe in an open Internet, open source and better — not more. I write about these things occasionally in my journal and you can browse some of my recent work and personal projects below.

The brief was to create a site that would replace the existing print brochure, improve usability and most importantly encourage people to discover new and unexpected content.

The new site is powered by WordPress and allows staff to pick and choose from a range of content to create unique page layouts that aid discovery. In collaboration with Preface Studios.

Stock Photography with Soul

A personal project to reinvent stock photography, in collaboration with Gemma Garner. We love snapping pictures on retro cameras and the results are miles apart from the lifeless stock on offer elsewhere. Our photos have soul and a super simple licence structure. A small selection of photos are also available on PhotoDune.net.

Thom Yorke

The Clock

D&AD student brief to create a music video for Thom Yorke’s “The Clock” — a song about climate change.

Studio time, video editing, touring, CD manufacturing and shipping are just a few of the environmentally intensive tasks that go into making four minutes of entertainment. My solution was to research the environmental impact of creating my video, then mix it with visual cues from both BP’s & Thom Yorke’s branding.

The video took first place in the 2007 Global student awards.

Speclative & Pository

A Remedy for Junk News

The news is full of speculation and misery. Luckily, regular use of my patent pending Internet medication can remedy this.

Speclative and Pository are two browser bookmarklets that determine if an article is worth reading or not. They save your time and your sanity. The source code for both projects is available on GitHub.
