About Scott Boms

At the Analog Research Lab at Facebook, Scott’s work has been described as “the cultural heart and soul of the company.” Through creative expression and ideation, it strives to influence diverse audiences by addressing our innate human curiosity about the world and by giving weight to important ideas by making them real.

Scott’s work has been displayed internationally at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles, the Design Museum in London, Designmuseo, Helsinki, the Design Museum Den Bosch in the Netherlands, the Type Directors Club in New York, and has appeared in HOW, Mohawk’s Maker Quarterly, Fast Co, Wired, Offscreen, Tech Crunch, Inc, and Ad Week among other publications.

Additionally, he has co-authored several books — most recently, Being Hear with Irish illustrator Fuchsia MacAree which is available exclusively from the Design Museum in London. He regularly speaks about design, printmaking, analog technologies, and communications theory to audiences across the globe but has very conflicted feelings about social media in general.

Originally from Toronto, Canada, Scott currently lives in Northern California with his wife, children, their orange tabby Squeaker, and new pup Maple. He enjoys making friends with creative people all over the world and has worked with organizations of all sizes including:

P.S. Scott is not currently accepting freelance projects and apologizes for writing in the third person. It’s weird, isn’t it?
