Wind Turbines, Wacky Races and Webby Awards
My name is Scott Bedford, by day I am the Creative Director of a digital agency in London, and by nights a Webby Award-winning blogger who loves making things (mostly from the things I find lying around).
My passion for making things started as a child.
I used to spend hours drawing crazily inventive machines, maybe because I was a huge fan of the Wacky Races cartoons. I even won a national competition for drawing a cheese factory (not my normal field of interest, but it was sponsored by Kraft Cheeses).
Later, when I was old enough to use my Father’s workshop, I spent my time building rat traps, motorised safes, bubble machines and rooftop wind turbines (using a bicycle dynamo).
After school I went to Art College and pursued a career in the advertising and design industry. It was only as my eldest son began to draw, that my own interest in making things was reignited and I started this blog.
Two years later my blog won 2 Webby Awards and I secured a book deal.
I currently live with my wife and sons in Buckinghamshire, England.
