Mary Scott began her design career at Capitol Records in
Hollywood—in, yes, that funny round building with pie-shaped offices. In
1964 acts such as the Beach Boys, Bobby Darin and even the Beatles were
on the scene. Scott remembers with fondness the day the Brinks truck
pulled up at Studio A on the ground floor of the Tower and out popped
John, Paul, Ringo and George. This was the Revolver tour, and the
backdrop for everything was the famous line drawing by Klaus Voormann
on the cover. She was lucky enough to get to shake hands with Paul and
Ringo (John and George were busy) at the press conference. After two and
half years, Scott moved on to work for William L. Pereira &
Associates Architecture and Planning, where she had the opportunity to
create collateral and identity materials for great projects such as the
library at University of California, Irvine, and the Transamerica
Pyramid building, which now stands as a beacon on San Francisco’s
skyline. Later, Scott was creative director for Sony Superscope Recorded
Tape Division, folowed by Mattel and then Maddocks & Company in Los
Angeles. In 1970, Scott received a LULU (Los Angeles Advertising
Women’s Club Award) for her album packaging for Sony (Debbie Reynolds
presented her with the golden statue). Through her years at Maddocks
& Company, her creative guidance led the firm to receive many
After being a partner at Maddocks & Company for more than 20
years—where her clients included Procter & Gamble, Sony
Entertainment, Murad (which won the Packaging Design Council’s Gold
Award), Avon and Kanebo—Scott moved to San Francisco in 1999. She was
recruited by the Academy of Art University to become chair of the School
of Graphic Design, and has been there ever since. The program at the
AAU has grown from 400 students to 1,120 at last count. Teaching and
overseeing a BFA and MFA program has kept her very busy, and Scott is
pleased to say that her students have achieved great success, graduating
to work for some of the leading design firms and businesses.
In 2007 Scott was named an AIGA Fellow by the San Francisco chapter.
Having served as chapter president in Los Angeles, on the AIGA national
board and on the San Francisco board, she devoted much of her time to
fundraising, educational outreach and chapter activities. Scott has two
and three grandchildren, whom she dotes on as often as possible. When
she’s not teaching, she also manages to do some landscaping projects in
the Bay Area.
Based on recent analysis of the U.S. Census conducted by the NEA, designers make up the largest segment of the
creative community in the United States.
