Core values are honesty and hard work

Design Estate is currently operated by myself, "Scott Heappey". I am a senior digital designer and front-end developer who collaborates with various people. For over 10 years I have been working with: UI/UX, websites, email marketing, branding/identity, 3D animation, motion graphics and print.

I have experience working for award winning agencies such as Switch.I.T and Folk, where I had the privilege to work on high-end clients including all the major car manufacturers, several government agencies and various banking and mining institutions.
