I currently work for Williams F1 where I am General Manager of the Williams Technology Centre in Qatar. The WTC was conceived by Williams F1 to develop and commercialise technologies that have their origins in Formula One. The WTC will initially focus on two projects: the development of large Magnetic Loaded Composite (MLC) electromechanical flywheel energy storage systems and advanced vehicle simulators. The former has been pioneered by Williams Hybrid Power (@williamshp) most recently helping the new Porsche 911 GT3R Hybrid almost win the 24 Hours of Nurburgring. The WTC is housed in the amazing Qatar Science & Technology Park.
Outside of my day job I am a founding Trustee of Mothers for All, a Southern African AIDS charity as well as a founder and non-executive director of social enterprise startup oneleep.com
I received a first class B.Sc (Advanced) (hons) in physics with a major in psychology from the University of Sydney. The subject of my thesis was the performance of large scale linear fresnel concentrating solar thermal systems.
The majority of my childhood was spent in remote Botswana - a part of my life recently chronicled by my sister, Robyn Scott, in her debut book: Twenty Chickens for a Saddle.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
I am looking for a personal logo identity that can be used in a variety of contexts from my personal website (damienscott.org) to use on stationary (letterheads, thank you cards, etc).
My personal website will be the primary exposure of the logo. As I run a high profile technology operation, I have many executives, prospective clients and prospective employees Googling me. The logo will form the basis for my site's identity.
I want a logo family from 16x16 favicon, to monochrome monogram suitable for a stamp/ring, to a full colour (possibly with 3D features) large logo.
The smaller variants should include my initials "DS". The full size full color logo could be either just the initials or use my full name - be creative.
I am not wedded to any colour (please do NOT take my current website damienscott.org) as a guide.
The following preferences/background could be incorporated
- Like modern over classical
- Like minamalism
- Work in the high tech world of Formula One (titanium / carbon fibre)
- Background in solar energy and physics
- Co-founder of an internet start-up
- Grew up in africa
