Worksight creates visual identities and brand strategies for a variety of clients, from corporate giants such as Automatic Data Processing (ADP) and Steelcase Furniture, to nonprofits including Purchase College and the Rainforest Foundation US. The goal of every project is to communicate to audiences by drawing them in through form and connecting them with smart ideas. Works include brochures and posters for the Mount Sinai Health System, book cover and interior design for famed architect Philip Johnson’s residences The Houses of Philip Johnson, a logo and website for Lotus Health and Wellness, and a visual identity program for the non-profit NYC Alliance Against Sexual Assault.

Articles about Worksight have been included in design publications including 2+3 D (Poland), DesignNET (Korea), Etapes Graphiques (France), Eye (England), ID and Print (USA), Plus Eighty One (Japan), and Art and Design (Beijing). Worksight has also been published in design books such as PBC International, Rockport, Rizzoli, and Watson Guptill. Its principal, Scott W.
