A Virtual

Hello, I’m Scott Mackenzie, a sans-douche human with a soft spot for well designed experiences. Observing, thinking and reflecting—learning, absorbing and evolving.

For updates follow me on Twitter or Instagram.

Standing By Company is a design studio founded by myself alongside good human and equally fantastico chap, Trent Barton.

Together we; Plan, design and build identities, enjoy the company of like-minded collaborators everyday, combine creative brilliance with technical know-how.


A personal manifesto—Steady Stream is the documentation of observations, experiences and moments of philosophical enlightenment.

I write to; Think better, think more, not forget things and perhaps get better at writing ;)
