Eric Scott was born in Santa Monica, California, in 1964. He graduated with honors from the USC School Of Business in 1986 with an emphasis in Entrepreneurship. Soon after, he pursued a degree in the applied science of Recording Arts and Engineering, with the intention of forming his own studio one day.
In 1991, Eric founded the Day For Night independent music imprint, for which he has developed an identity and image that have proven informative to all his subsequent work. Concurrently, between 1991 –1998, he was art director for TSA Design Group and WorldWest Communications, respectively, where he was jointly responsible for identity, design and packaging. His sleeves for the band Toto (Sony Music International) and the jazz label Zebra Records became a visible outlet for his graphic work, albeit a small representation of the body of work he was producing at the time.
In 1995, Eric established Day For Night as a full-time creative studio, allowing his strategic, design, writing and multimedia skills to coalesce and form an ideas-based environment. As well as a practicing graphic artist, audio designer and music composer, he is also proficient in user experience design and programming – and has applied his collective skills in branding strategies with an intuitive approach creating music, art, film and the written word.
Works produced in 2005 include musical commissions for Invidi Technologies as well as web design and musical underscores for the online gallery showings and DVD releases for fine artist and painter Andrew Lakey.
