ABOUT OXYGEN DESIGN
Scott Kuykendall is a native Texan and holds a BFA degree in Design Communication from Texas Tech University. Starting his career as an advertising agency art director in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, Scott continued his education at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA. Receiving a Fellowship grant after his first term, he transferred to its campus in La Tour-de-Peilz, Switzerland, on the shores of Lake Geneva, earning an Honors BFA Degree in Graphics and Packaging Design.
On graduating from Art Center Europe, Scott was asked to teach design and typography there, and followed that up by working in London, creating corporate branding and packaging. After returning to the United States to live and work in a Connecticut suburb of New York City, Scott established Oxygen Design, creating print and web design for publishing, financial services, healthcare, pharmaceutical, insurance, retail import, nonprofit and small business clients.
Scott’s design work has been recognized by the Connecticut Art Director’s Club, Print Magazine, HOW Magazine, the AR100 Annual Report Award Show, and the Connecticut League of Historical Organizations.
While in Connecticut, Scott’s renovation of his 1913 Arts and Crafts home on the shore of Long Island Sound led to an interest in historic preservation. He subsequently served as a board member, then as President of the Norwalk Historical Society, working at the time with a grant from CT Humanities to organize a strategic master plan for the nonprofit.
Scott’s interest in historic preservation has led to an expansion of his portfolio of capabilities, most recently in a series of interpretive exhibits, signage and website design for museum and historic sites in New England.
Scott is also a fine artist and landscape painter. He is fascinated by the Pacific Northwest, where he finds inspiration in the wild places where the land meets the water. His paintings can be seen at colorofwhite.com.
