Scott Werley (he/him) is originally from Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Scott holds a B.A. in Graphic Design & Photography from St. Norbert College and resides in Portland, Oregon with his wife Lindsey and pets Mabel and Ella.

When he’s not working on professional design projects, Scott is hitting the trails with his dog Mabel, producing dreamy electronic mixes, and traversing Portland’s creative food and craft brew scenes.

Scott infectiously channels his curiosity and love for the natural world into his work and finds meaning within his creative pursuits.
