Employee Highlight – Jason Scott
We are proud of our employees and the pride and care they take producing your orders and want to share their stories with you.
Each month we highlight one of our employees and the department they work in! You will get a look behind-the-scenes here at the lab, and get to know one of our own a little bit better.
Jason Scott-Design Center
The design center assists customers with everything from album and card design to school and sports flyers, ID cards and composites. They have the expertise to make your product look its best.
Q How did you come to work at H&H?
A I actually got my degree in Parks Management, and I ended up working with Boy Scouts of America for about ten years, doing their fundraising and community development. I loved the people I worked with and the organization itself, but for several reasons, found that I wanted to pursue a different path. After exploring my options, I went back to school for a degree in Graphic Design. Upon graduation, I found H&H Color Lab. I have been with the lab for about 4½ years now.
What is it that you love about your job?
A I enjoy the team I work with very much. We are a small group, and we get along well. I know when I come to work, I will do something of value for our customers, and I will have a great team to work alongside in the process. We also are able to pitch in and help one another out when we hit our busy season. I love being able to work in the design software I went to school for and to be able to stay current with my skills. Projects like creating cards, design templates and banners provides a creative outlet in contrast to the digital production work we typically do.
The design center often serves as a liaison for customers as well, helping them with design questions, and details related to composites and flyers. Our customer service team is great about answering most customer questions, but they know we can supplement that service by answering more specific design questions.
Q Tell me about your hobbies and family!
A I love doing anything active – I’ve been mountain climbing (I’ve summited Longs Peak three times which I’m pretty proud of!). I have been fortunate to be able to go scuba diving around ship wrecks and with giant manta rays. I also love playing about any sport. I am married, with three kids. Our twins are in fifth grade, and then our youngest is 4. These days though, with three children, most of my activities revolve around what they’re doing. We enjoy taking them fishing, hiking, watching Sponge Bob with them, going to Worlds/Oceans of Fun like I did growing up – and of course, attending as many Royals games as we can. Last fall we were fortunate enough to take them to the ALCS against Toronto, which was really special for all of us!
Also, this last year I ran my first half-marathon and followed that up with knee surgery (unrelated to the race) and recovery. Over the summer, we took a long road trip up to the Dakotas, and by long I mean we drove to Theodore Roosevelt National Park in western North Dakota on the first day…with three small children! We camped in the Black Hills of South Dakota, and I capped off the trip with a climb of Devils’ Tower with my brother and (74 year old) dad. My brother was the only one of us who summited, but actually climbing on the tower – which you can’t do without a registered climbing guide – was spectacular!
