Scott Starrett

I create communication—design systems with intention.

As a kid I was fascinated by ideas. I thought about how every bridge we drove over, the maps in our classrooms, even the comic books under my bed, were all created by people. Once I realized human beings were literally making it up as they went… I wanted in on it.

I’m co-founder and design director of the communication design studio, Tandem. I act as a strategic communications advisor to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and I’m an outspoken advocate for civic engagement & socially responsible design. 

If you’re interested in my consulting and design work, want to schedule a speaking engagement, or have thoughts about a collaboration, don’t hesitate to reach out.
