The "Real" people behind the magic!



Scott Bassett


Scott's broad design and production experience provides Bassett & Brush with a strong core capability upon which to draw. Having earned degrees in advertising and graphic design in 1976, Scott spent the next nine years in creative, design, and technical capacities with marketing and printing companies in Seattle and Spokane, Washington. His work, before and since launching Bassett & Brush in 1985, has been for numerous clients in a large number of major markets nationally, as well as a few abroad.


Shannon Potratz

Senior Designer

After completing his degree in 1994, Shannon first worked in the heavily illustrative design world of silk screened sportswear and then entered the more traditional design venues as a staff designer with a major printing/marketing company. His illustrative style draws on American classic illustrators and gives us a tremendous diversity in design and illustration. There are few in the area that can match shannon's talent and expertise.
