About Scott

Scott Kirkman is an Australian graphic designer based in Newcastle NSW, specialising in brand and identity.

Beginning his career at FutureBrand Melbourne, Scott approached corporate design without a corporate mindset, working confidently across large-scale identity systems with the attention to detail of a boutique designer. In mid 2013 he cofounded the Melbourne design studio Pennant with the aim to apply the strategic mindset and thorough processes of a big agency to small business. Scott now runs the Newcastle NSW based studio Shorthand with his partner Amanda Cole.

Scott’s work has one gold at the Communicator Awards, been shortlisted for two Create Awards and featured internationally online and in print. In his downtime, Scott is working on bringing together his passion for design with a less practical affection for old genre films with his side project Weekly Rental.
