Scott Kinsey A.K.A. GOODFEAR
I am a Director, Creative Director, Photographer and Principal at GOODFEAR in Los Angeles, CA.
GOODFEAR is a small creative agency that I formed in 2002 to assists clients in creating well designed experiences to connect with and engage their audiences. I develop original content and design for client products and campaigns. My background is in art, design and photography. I studied industrial design and photography in college. Love of ART and DESIGN has led me down the path working with large agencies, small design studios, post production houses and just about everything in-between. Through these experiences I decided to form GOODFEAR after leaving two hundred° the first studio I formed with my good friends and inspiringly talented peers. GOODFEAR was taking some risks and being pushed by my fears and all of the things I wanted to do creatively and in life. The end goal is doing what I like to do and having a balance of work and life. I live art, design and photography… its the kind of thing you just can’t turn off in your head. Sometimes I feel like I am spinning plates but that is what I enjoy.

This is a project I did with a good friend of mine and HUGE inspiration. Mark Felt and I Came up with the concept and began doing R&D and planning in 2006 and was published by Booth Booth-Clibborn Editions in 2008. (UP)Rising Sonz! is an homage to some of the colorful and inspirational people that drive Japanese pop and subcultures by following their passions. The common language is art and the thread that ties them together is skateboarding. This book introduced me to many friends that I hadn’t met and exposed me to a Japan that not many people have seen.
