NoelCrane.com – Flash edition (2000) and follow up to the successful mini-site created during the show’s first season. Digital Strategy, Art Direction and Design by Eric Scott (Day For Night).

Noel Crane has asked us to host his popular Flash site for him, and we are honored to have him on board. Cut. Ok, now, back to reality.

The personal homepage of Noel Crane, graphic designer, friend to Felicity Porter, and resident advisor at Kelvin Hall and all-around nice guy, was launched prior to his creation of Blumberg-Crane Design with business partner Sean. But an entire level of digital strategy preceded this site, when Day For Night helped to visualize a universe in which Noel, a fictitious character on the WB Network’s television show Felicity (created by J.J. Abrams and Matt Reeves), would come to life online as a character with a real life, real website, real feelings… you get the picture.

Official brand strategy for the show site during the third and fourth seasons included revamping the site’s look with a Flash UX and producing new features such as the Docuventary clips (with Greg Grunberg’s in-character mock interviews of the cast members, hunting for “spoilers”).

Additional brand development included the ongoing NoelCrane.com viral website, which refuted any acknowledgment of the parent/network brands, encouraging misdirection of its site visitors to peek into Noel’s online portfolio while he looks for a job. Amusingly enough, the show’s creators found time to work Eric Scott into the show’s storyline as Noel and Sean went off in search of building a client base!

Tomato Workshops NYC :: June 2001

“Record the world in front of you
and in the edges of what you
cannot or will not see.” – Eric Scott

Excerpt from the brief for Tomato‘s workshops:

The workshops are a way of immersing yourself suddenly and intensely into the process and conversation that goes on within tomato. Several members of tomato are there to initiate the conversation, but the workshop really happens through the interaction of everyone there. A wide range of people from around the world with diverse backgrounds come together to create work. You not only learn a great deal from everyone around you but everyone learns from you as well. They are about creativity, art, process, life, philosophy, design, and the interconnectedness of all of these things. But of course I now have to ask if these things ever were separate from each other anyway? (more) (Courtesy of TomatoWorkshops.com)

Eric Scott (Day For Night) “June, 2001 in New York City was the setting of the Tomato Workshops where I met Peter Moraites, and formed an indelible bond and friendship. Much can be said about the 5 days spent at a workshop where I arrived with no concrete expectations, and left with a head full of dreams. John Warwicker, Graham Wood and Steve Baker (of Tomato) had created a studio setting that felt (for me) like a week-long break from routine, where the client work schedule got left behind in California, and I could instead inhabit this “commune-like” environment for creativity, where sleeping and eating came second to working and making things in a creatively charged space.”

An exercise created from my room at Hotel 17, Greenwich Village at 11:30 pm on a very rainy night in New York City. It was made using Flash and Macromedia SoundEdit; using a digital camera, handheld audio recorder and limited resources (certainly no access to internet, c’mon — it was June 2001 and I was alone in a dingy little hotel)… 🙂

Toto “XX” 1977-1997 – Design & Art Direction by Eric Scott with Brian Peterson, Logo Design by Magdy Rizk

In 1997, the successful “Tambu” campaign and tour were followed in 1997 by a collection of the Toto’s archival “XX”. This collection of unreleased, rare and live tracks from the band’s career necessitated the journey through a vault of photographs, recordings and collectibles, in search of the perfect career snapshot to satisfy both fans and collectors alike.

To create the dream-collage shown in the album art, many “new” historical artifacts were devised, as micro-cassettes, 8-tracks and tchotchkeys appeared for the first time ever, by use of Photoshop, and by the good graces and creative license this project had to offer.

So don’t go looking on eBay for a Kingdom Of Desire London Tour Bus anywhere… you probably won’t find it.

This work was produced in collaboration with Doug Brown of WorldWest Communications, with Brian Peterson (Roam Creative) and logo illustrator Magdy Rizk.

1997 proved to be a strong year for Toto‘s Steve Lukather, when Sony Music International, in association with representation Fitzgerald-Hartley, devised a solo identity for the singer-guitarist, in the form of “Luke.”
Luke – the album – is a youthful-sounding album, full of energy and raw power. To hone the album concept, creative director Doug Brown (WorldWest) commissioned over 100 cover treatments and designs from Eric Scott, in an effort to bombard the decision-makers with choices of all varieties.

Steve Lukather_Luke Rennes_poster“…We completely plastered the conference room wall in designs, right before Steve (Lukather) and (manager) Mark (Hartley) arrived for the presentation. A 20-foot wall with hundreds of great album designs, all representing Luke with a different photographic and type treatments. There were over a hundred, and I was exhausted, since I’d been generating these for just about two weeks solid, doing about 7-10 new ones each day. And each time I showed a round to Doug, he’d smile and nod, and tell me to go and give him another ten.

What was really odd though, was how I snuck in at the last minute,  stuck one last design up there in the middle of the hundred, something I had just done upstairs in the studio, quite literally minutes before they arrived, and this happened to be the one with the word “LUKE” embedded very small, inside of Steve’s iris… And somehow, everyone, ironically, went straight to that one. Go figure, except that it was my favorite too.”

Toto “The Other End Of Time” – CD-s release – Design & Art Direction by Eric Scott (Day For Night)

In 1995, Sony Music International, in association withToto‘s representation Fitzgerald-Hartley, issued a powerful comeback campaign directive for the band; the first result was “Tambu“… Inspired by the band’s fascination in invented word-hybrid… “Something which could mean something brand new unto itself,” a cross between “taboo” and tamboe, an instrument favored by percussionist Simon Phillips.

Tambu – the album – was a conceit born of a love for pulp-fiction covers and tawdry bedside reading. The album concept, devised by Eric Scott and Doug Brown (WorldWest Communications), involved a period juke joint setting, in which the band were to be filmed and photographed while performing, for both their album photography and music video “I Will Remember”… The design of the sleeve itself was a laborious affair, involving the creation of a custom typeface “5 4 0” (a distressed variation on Caslon) and many coffee-stained and soiled pages of a lyric booklet; representing the innards of the same pulp novel…

1994-1998 : Eric Scott Art Direction Portfolio

Immediately prior to launching a full-time career in 1998 as Creative Director with Day For Night, Eric Scott was Art Director with WorldWest Communications, and worked with recording industry clients Sony Music International and Zebra Records, to produce packaging design for some of their top artists.

In 1995, Sony Music International, in association with Toto‘s representation Fitzgerald-Hartley, issued a powerful comeback campaign directive for the band; the first result was “Tambu“… Inspired by the band’s fascination in invented word-hybrid… “Something which could mean something brand new unto itself,” a cross between “taboo” and the tamboe, an instrument played by percussionist Simon Phillips.

Tambu – the album – was a conceit born of a love for pulp-fiction covers and tawdry bedside reading. The album concept, devised by Eric Scott and Doug Brown (WorldWest Communications), involved a period juke joint setting, in which the band were to be filmed and photographed while performing, for both their album photography and music video “I Will Remember”… The design of the sleeve itself was a laborious affair, involving the creation of a custom typeface “5 4 0” (a distressed variation on Caslon) and many coffee-stained and soiled pages of a lyric booklet; representing the innards of the same pulp novel… This was to be followed in 1997 by a collection of the Toto’s archival “XX“.

Day For Night would LOVE to sit down to have a chat with you. Not just to get to know you (honestly, that’s really a big part of the fun) but also to help guide your company’s brand towards a successful digital presence. To us, that’s what digital strategy is — getting to hear what you believe in, what your brand is all about (or going to be about) and helping provide you with quality options to further your vision.

The difference between ‘digital strategy’ and our other creative services is that the focus can be simply upon . We’d love to design for you, but if you’ve already got that, there’s so much more left to discuss regarding your long-term goals. Your digital archival legacy, your user experience, and your social medial all fit into the big picture which we embrace as part of your overall creative strategy…

So let’s get our heads together, and make that happen.

Day For Night :: Client Portfolio

April 1998 marked the start date of Eric Scott’s career as Creative Director with Day For Night Multimedia. After a very productive “re-invention hiatus” of three months, re-focusing priorities from his previous role as Art Director with WorldWest Communications, Eric moved all of his attention on developing a compact and flexible studio environment; one which required little or no overhead and minimal cost outlay. The first commercial pitch was a home run: to Touchstone Television/Imagine Entertainment/Disney Online, for the design of a web presence for “Felicity” resident advisor Noel Crane.

The objective was two-fold; to create a viral marketing and word-of-mouth piece for the show, and allow for there to be spirit of discovery and renewal for fans of the show, who would discover, by only the most casual of mentions, that fictitious Noel’s homepage really did exist online. Today, a commonplace enough occurrence, but a pretty radical idea, back in 1998, when only the elite seemed to understand web tools well enough to devise a minimalistic presence.
