Every project is different and understanding your needs and project requirements is something I believe is imperative to creating the right product for you. I have acquired extensive knowledge of the footwear design & footwear development process thru years of working in the footwear industry with some of the best UK & International footwear brands and footwear factories.


I cover all aspects of the footwear design process from entry point to high end, casual, lifestyle, formal  & safety product. From start up brands to international collections, I offer an end to end service.

Winner of the accessories designer of the year at London Graduate Fashion Week, Scott has worked for many UK & International Brands and continues to push the boundaries of design & innovation within the footwear sector. He is particularly interested in developing innovative sustainable footwear collections.
Having witnessed the Ocean Waste plight on a daily basis whilst walking his dogs along the jurrassic coast in Dorset, he is currently researching how Ocean Waste can be incorporated within the components of a shoe to re-purpose this plastic waste and give it a new life. He is also looking at ways to reduce the high toxic impact associated within footwear production.
