Artist Statement

"I tend to favor photography over illustration; minimalism over ornamentation. One of the things I enjoy is showing elements in close-up, favoring parts over the whole. The chameleon in the photo is actually suspended in a jar, but I love the open-mouth expression. (It's dead but no one needs to know that!) The typeface is not Arial or Helvetica, but Nimbus Sans, available from Adobe Typekit." - Scott Saslow

A native of the Sunshine State, graphic designer Scott Saslow is a magna cum laude graduate of Florida Atlantic University's Dorothy F. Schmidt College of Arts and Letters. Interested in graphic design from a young age, he finally decided to back to school after studying film production and working a variety of temp jobs, including movie studio file clerk, background TV extra, and NASA test subject (really!). His other hobbies include reading, pop culture and assorted nerdery, and spending time with family and friends. You can find him on social media and view his portfolio at scottsaslow.com.
