David’s signature designs emphasize the personal style of his clients. The very fabric of his business lies in embracing the natural connection his clients have to their project, ensuring their personality and character are reflected in the design. The result is an inviting environment that is highly personal, comfortable, and practical. Before he came to NYSID in 1987, David Scott had already received a BS degree in economics and even worked in hotel and real estate sales. “I remember a drawing class at NYSID vividly,” relates Scott of those early days in his change-of-careers. “It was a day that we visited the Metropolitan Museum and were drawing the Egyptian Temple of Dendur. I put my pencil to the page, and it’s hard to describe, but it was a moment in which everything fell into place. After all, this was a second career for me. But somehow, at that moment, I knew I really was an artist.”Scott’s design career began while he was still in school. “I was hired to do 3 jobs in my senior year, and opened my own business while still a student,” says Scott. “There were a lot of sleepless nights. Every thought that came to me, I would write it down—there were so many details. But I figured, ‘sink or swim.’ So I jumped in.”
