Graphic Design, Illustration and Production
Scott funded most of his adventures, this website and a lot of school projects with the profits from years of working in the advertising business. Scott worked as either a senior graphic designer or art director in some of the best advertising agencies in the country, including TBWA\Chiat\Day when they won the prestigious Ad Agency of the Year Award. Not only did he design dozens of bicycle logos, but he also designed thousands and thousands of ads, posters, billboards, websites and much more.
Scott’s loves to do graphic design for anything related to bicycles, travel and adventure, especially logos. Who better to design your logo than someone who loves bicycles?

- Below is a small sample of Scott’s bicycle logos as well as adventure, fitness and travel logos.
- My graphic design website is no longer updated because the framework is hopelessly out of date, but it is still online.
- I occasionally post some work-in-progress on Behance by Adobe.
- Don’t miss my portfolio of books.
- This award-winning website is my best example of web design. Read our story about how The Argonauts was ahead of its time.
- And perhaps my best portfolio piece is my new book “Dream it!” and the matching website Dreamaplay.com. It took all my skills to make this interactive workbook, including: writing, illustration, graphic design, production, web design and, not least of all, branding and marketing. It took me a lifetime of experience to make a product this good!

Bicycle Logo Design
I tried to adapt my bicycle theme to a website about graphic design business. For years, I kept them separate. Then I tried merging them together, similar to how you see it now. But, I admit, neither way was very successful. I probably should have just branded my design business with my name, like scottstoll.com.
In the header of this webpage are two more related logos: the main logo The Argonauts a travel-adventure website that was built around my trip around the world, but was expanded to include everyone’s journey. There exist about a dozen variations of this logo different purposes. And next to that is a logo that represents bicycle touring and bicycling around the world. I turned this logo upside down, because when traveling the world I realized everything was relative.
And you can see the Falling Uphill logo and book design. Falling Uphill became the metaphor for my trip around the world on a bicycle seeking happiness. You probably know that by know, but did you also know that I was the graphic designer, illustrator and production artist? Oh and the author, too. Yikes. But I had a lot of help!

A bicycle advocacy newspaper ad
The ad that got me fired.
The reason I quit the corporate world.
Long story short: Above is a restored photo from the only existing printed piece of a full-color, full-page newspaper ad that is now yellowed, wrinkled and spotted. This advertisement actually won an award in the regional Addy contest and then went on to the Nationals. However, before that happened my boss used this as one of his primary reasons for firing me. He said that he had never seen a focus group tear apart an ad so much. In fact, he said that he had never seen an art director as bad as me. This happened on the Friday before New Year’s Eve, and he told me not to come back next year, meaning Monday. This event led to the incendiary moment which compelled me to ask, “If I could do anything, what would I do?” And if you know me, you know my answer was to ride a bicycle around the world and find the meaning of life and happiness or die trying. Well, I came close to dying several times, but I lived to write my best-selling, independent book Falling Uphill about my quest for happiness. And, you can relive this moment in the opening chapter. Or read the short story long.
