Crafts by Scott Bedford

Scott has been drawing machines, gadgets and contraptions since he first watched Wacky Races cartoons as a kid. When he was old enough to use his Father's workshop, he started making things as well... rat catchers, bubble machines and shed-top turbines, to name a few.

Earliest Creative Accolade

Aged 8, Scott entered a national art competition sponsored by Kraft cheeses. He won his age category with an inventive drawing of a cheese factory, boasting a Rude Goldberg style production line. His prize was a visit to children's TV art icon, Tony Hart, at the BBC's Bristol studios.

Art College & Beyond

After A Levels Scott attended at the now defunct Gt. Yarmouth College of Art & Design, completing a foundation year before specialising in Graphic Design. His first job after leaving college was as a Junior Designer at Marks & Spencer's headquarters on Baker Street, London.

Creative Career

Scott continued working in the advertising and design industry, working at well-known agencies in London and Cape Town, as a designer, art director and creative director. He has over 40 creative accolades, including wins at the Cannes Lions, New York Festivals, One show and Webby Awards.

Blog to Books

In 2010, Scott started sharing craft projects on a blog called 'What I Made'. The unique hand drawn instructions quickly gained attention and within a year his blog had won two Webby Awards and secured a book deal with a New York publisher. Scott's fourth book was launched in 2023.

Brick on the Egg

Brick on the Egg was launched in May 2023, to enable Scott to market his creative services directly to businesses and agencies. He'd love to help your business to grow, so get in contact.
