We Make Place



At the Intersection of Digital & Physical

Emerald Seven is a boutique, integrative design studio based in Seattle. We’re a highly collaborative crew that learns out in the open. We never take a project at face value. Considering your design challenge in terms of the whole, we strive to create elegant and thoughtful solutions, whether they be digital, physical, or a hybrid of the two. So, let’s make something (together). Let’s make place.

Let’s Narrow This Down

The physical and the digital worlds are complementary: they play, interact, support, augment, and often help create one another. Even when the end result is purely situated in one realm, the design process likely involved the other. Nonetheless, it doesn't hurt to sort our work into some genres for you, even if they cross-pollinate.

Our Integrative Design Process

We don’t pretend to know all of the things, and neither should you. Here at Emerald Seven, we’re a highly collaborative crew. We embrace uncertainty and learn out in the open. We never take a project at face value. We critique. We iterate. We design. We develop. And we always learn.

Rachel Simrell Scott

Trained as an architect, but active in both the architectural and digital fields, I spend my waking hours working and playing where design meets technology. My experience designing for the human experience anchors my design sense where it matters: with people, not with ego.

Bio Projects Thoughts

Blake Scott

Learning to effectively leverage multiple disciplines took years of formal education, personal curiosity, and professional experience. Buoyed by interdisciplinary expertise, I guide projects, practicing whole-system thinking and an Integrative Design Process.
