Graphic Designer Portfolio
My name is Scott Greer and I have been a professional graphic designer for 20 years. The scrolling images above reveal a small taste of the work I've been involved in and the experience I've developed in that time.
Everything from Business Owner, Signage, Web Design, Vehicle Graphics, Print Media, CAD Drawings, Advertising, Installation, Logo Designs, Sales, Custom Work and more.
I currently split my time working for Verizon to help set blocks up in the New York area with FIOS. I take photos, measurements and even contact people of the locations still in need. I then draw them up on the computer in CAD formats. The installers then use that information and are able to finally help these blocks get access to FIOS.
I also work as a freelance graphic designer, focusing mostly on book cover designs. As a writer myself, looking to publish my own first novel, I recently became interested in book covers which helped in the creation of this site. Helping other young authors is a great feeling and a quality book cover is proven to help it sell.
Below is a full gallery of my work, a link to my former business www.Signtificsign.com which I helped create and was partner of for a decade and my official resume.

I have been studying the art of Graphic Design since I was as child. This photo shows me working on the Hofstra University Scoreboard for the Football Field. I was also a student at Hofstra and created signage across campus.
After graduating college, I started this business with my partner Nick and ran the company for a decade. It is still in operation today and has done work for Hofstra, Chase Bank, Nissan, Ford, Kia, Volvo and much more. Visit SigntificSign.com for more information.
In addition to graphic design work, I have spent several years helping Verizon FIOS get set up throughout all of New York City with detailed CAD drawings. The drawings and measurements are a key step in Verizon's mission to improve their available service cables for all of New York.
I have also written a novel which is still in the process of finalizing. What began as a hobby has slowly grown into my new passion. Writing and book cover designs are enjoyable and bring two of my greatest skills together. I now offer custom and pre-made cover designs while I work on writing my own novels.
Please scroll down below through a gallery of some of my favorite Graphic Design work I have completed over more than 25 years in a wide variety of categories & formats.
Everything from Signage, Custom & Pre-Made Book Covers, Web Design, Vehicle Graphics, Print Media, CAD Drawings for Verizon FIOS, Advertising, Installation, Logo Designs, Sales, Custom Projects and more.
I have done a wide variety of projects and helped it grow into one of the most popular Universities in the New York Area. It has even been the host for U.S. Presidential Debates. Below is a grouping of some of the most notable jobs I was apart of over the years.
Each of these jobs was done throughout my life as a graphic designer. They helped me learn different aspects of the design world and continued to build Hofstra into one of the best Universities in the New York City Area.
These are just some of my favorite logo's I designed. They range from businesses to restaurants, schools and even a couple of our own logo's for Happy Food w/ Dana and GreerArt.com
Raised Letters & Panels
Signage with Raised Letters and Layered Panels helps gives an extra dimension to the design and stand out among the rest of the competition. Whether with gold letters, digital graphics, metal panels and more, each design was different.
The New York Jets, Town Signage, Restaurants, Marina's Italian Ice, Churches, Retirement Homes, Auto Centers, Toyota Dealers, Dentists Pharmacies & more...
CAD Designs for Verizon FIOS
While most of my skills are in the pure graphic design area, I have also developed a talent for CAD Drawings. These drawings are used to help Verizon FIOS get set up throughout all of NYC and improve their service at no cost to everyone living in the area.
Some drawings were all CAD and very detailed, while others help show the exact distances of existing things already on the block. All essential for Verizon Installers to know before they set out to work on each block.
I never learned the carving process, but was heavily involved in the design & installation of these beautiful carved signs. My father and business partner Nick were the Hand Carving specialists.
Once carved, these signs can last for decades and help any business or individual stand out from the competition.
Including GreerArt.com, I designed several websites over the years. La Grotta Imports is a wine company owned by Marina's Italian Ice's. SigntificSign.com was for my sign business and is still active today which went through a few different looks.
Book Cover Design
Graphic Design may be my specialty, however writing and book cover design has developed into a true passion. "Red Tide" is my first finished novel and I have worked on the side as a cover designer while attempting to get it published.
As I work my way into the fantastic world of the book industry... please contact me if interested in any pre-made or custom book covers for your own novel or short story.
Full wraps to partial covers to concept art has been part of my design culture for over 20 years. Whether a Truck, car or even boat, any design can help stand- out from those around you.
Flyers & Advertising
A small sample of a variety of ways I have designed products to help companies and people stand out from the competition and advertise to new & existing customers.
This type of signage looks great during the day, but really stands out at night. With the power of lights and electronics, these designs we specifically intended to pop out in the darkness and help these places be seen, when the standard sign can't.
Banners & Window Displays
Everything from windows to walls to the sides of buildings can be covered with advertisements and help a company be seen. These are just a few examples I have done over the years for small businesses to major corporations.
Movie & TV Signage
Some of the most fun and intersting jobs are those that take place for Movies & TV. This is a collection of signs that were made for some of my favorite of all time including the "Sutter" sign which was in the Movie Bereavement starring the now famous Alexandria Daddario
Custom jobs can often be the most rewarding. Below is a small sample of projects including home address signage, birth cards, figurines, mug wraps and Pool Pong Table covers for and enjoyable drinking game during those summer months made to fit what the customer loves.
