Creative Design - Iconic Branding - Web Development

I am Branding

Welcome to my digital playground

Hello, and Welcome

MadDesignStudios is the digital playground of Freelance creative designer and pixel perfectionist, Scott Barron.


Your brand resides within the hearts and minds of customers, clients, and prospects. We can help you ensure your brand sticks in the minds of these people.

Responsive Web

Responsive web design represents a fundamental shift in how we’ll build websites for the decade to come. The Mobile age is with us and your website needs to look just as good on a mobile device as it does on a desktop.

Crafted with Passion

Freelancers are with you every step of the way, from concept to completion. Unlike studios we will pour 120% of our heart and soul into every design.

About me

Hello there, my name is Scott. And welcome to my world. I’m a part-time creative designer and founder of MadDesignStudios based in Edinburgh, Scotland.

Everything is designed. Few things are designed well
Brian Reed

I have over 7 years experience in the design & web industries, have HND qualifications in Multimedia Design & Design, and have previously worked for clients all over the world. I have been designing media for print and web since 2006. During this time I have worked with a range of clients ranging from individuals to corporate companies. In that time I have gained a comprehensive understanding of how important good design is.

The first and foremost reason for hiring a freelancer is the quality of work. A freelancer is useless without a good portfolio, and to maintain clients, a high standard is a continual requirement. A freelancer is directly responsible for every piece of work produced, and every job must be treated as such. This means every piece of design I complete I strive to make it the best possible solution for the client and as such improve my portfolio for the future.
Freelancers are able to spend more time researching, discovering and experimenting to produce results that deliver beyond the standard. A freelancer is not limited to a standard process, and not bound by a specific procedure.
Innovation is important to a freelancer as they intend to prove their worth – and completing work that is new, different and beyond the capabilities and flexibility of traditional business, ensures this is the case.

Some facts about me

Each completed project makes me even more hungry, hungry for more designs, more code and I always look to improve my skill set. As a result I can deliver an improved client service.

I am very passionate about design and love to diversify and keep up to date with the latest design trends.

Branding Design

A brand is much more than a logo design, colour palette and a slogan – it’s the first and last impression that you leave with your audience.

Graphic Design

Graphic design should provoke a reaction, using meaningful and relevant ideas to engage with your audience and leave an impression.

Responsive Web Development

A website needs to look beautiful, be user friendly, perform brilliantly in search engines and work perfectly on all modern devices.

A designer knows he has achieved perfection not when there is nothing left to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.
