Since 1998, designer Scott Stowell has been doing business as Open, and as such has grown by not growing, specialized in not really specializing in anything in particular, and (according to the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum), embraced “an open notion of the term ‘office,’ inviting different participants to every project.” In 2008, Scott was named the winner of the National Design Award for Communication Design.
Open is an independent design studio that creates rewarding experiences for people who look, read, and think. Open projects include identity systems for Bravo and New York Public Radio, editorial design for Good magazine and Stanford’s d.school, short films for Jazz at Lincoln Center and Time, architectural signage for Brooklyn Bridge Park and Yale University, and integrated campaigns for Google and Patagonia.
