Our youngest designer is rising high school senior Scott Silver who joined the Beehive this past July. He introduced his OM t-shirt design to the shop to enthusiastic reviews, including getting written up in Westchester Magazine -not bad for his first foray into surface design! Learn a little more about Scott and check out his Westchester Magazine story here.
What do you make? I'm
a graphic designer who sells shirt designs and logos for mostly start
up companies around the country. On the side, I make digital graphics
that I print on shirts and framed art that I sell through my company. I
strive for a modern indie feel to my designs.
When did you start designing?
I started designing this past year when sports were taken away from me
by concussions and, ultimately, back problems. I’ve always had creative
thoughts, but it wasn’t until recently that I was able to expand on them
and turn them into art.
Is this your full-time gig?
Other than school work and babysitting jobs, I try to give myself the
most possible time to work on my designs. This has been my favorite
hobby because I don’t have to live up to any set expectations. I work
from my own mind and on my own time. It’s great.
What are you working on now?
I’m working on a collection of designs that have eyes implemented
in them. A macula, which is what my company is named after, is a part of
the eye that is responsible for one’s central, high resolution vision.
I’ve been working a lot with irises, too. Every iris is unique in itself
and is filled with different colors, widths, and shapes.
