Stories from our customers

I’ve used Scott for many videos in the past and will continue to do so. Scott’s professional videos are always delivered promptly while exceeding any expectations that I have for each project undertaken. Looking forward to working with Scott again soon.

I’ve worked with Scott for close to 10 years now, and I can’t speak highly enough of his creative talents, ability to work under tight deadlines, professionalism and technological expertise. Scott has provided us full-service creative development and design, video and audio production, website design and programming as well as created a fully integrated, custom production database. His talents and flexibility have been, and continue to be, an incredible asset to our organization. Scott’s skillset is truly unmatchable!

Scott is an amazing developer, creative strategist, and media mastermind. His support has been invaluable due to his proactive approach and ability to plan for growth. It’s wonderful having Scott available for brainstorms, and have learned that it’s best to include Scott as soon as possible!

In the field of economic development, it is all about getting your message out. I have worked with Layman New Media for well over ten years helping clients tell their story. Whether it is developing a marketing strategy, graphic art, branding, website development or advertising, Layman New Media provides thoughtful, effective and timely work. Scott Layman is simply bright and clever; he understands the latest technology and uses it to make a message penetrate the clutter of the marketplace.

At Colonial Farm Credit, we value Scott Layman’s creative input and love his ideas. We will have a vague concept of what we want to convey in our advertising and he turns it into something fantastic. His animated ads for our land and home campaign have been a huge hit both with our prospects and our employees. Plus, he works quickly and with only minor direction and takes the time to really “get” what we are trying to do with our campaigns.

Scott created graphic design, websites, and multiple other projects for us throughout the years providing high quality results. His talent produces big-buck ad agency results at affordable prices. Would highly recommend Scott!

Working with Scott has by far been one of the best decisions I’ve made for my business. Not only does he keep in constant communication with me regarding projects. He delivers high quality work every single time.

Scott worked tirelessly to update our company logo and the result was jaw dropping! I could not be happier. Thank you!

Scott through our communications agency helped us create and then in 2018 to update our Careers website. This Careers website helps with recruitment of team members for our Hardee’s restaurants. The challenge was to appeal to prospective employees via good content and even social media by providing relevant, useful information on the company and the company’s culture. It shows a company where employee contributions are valued and hard work is rewarded. There were challenges about how to attract applicants over a wide geographical area. Scott came up with suggestions and tools he built into the website to help with those challenges. We’re very happy with the outcome and our website is a valuable asset in helping us attract restaurant team talent.

Scott did a terrific job with our PR agency’s website. Our team was looking for an impactful design that would showcase our work and do so with a clean, uncluttered look. The functionality of the website was exactly what we were looking for, too. Scott made recommendations but he also listened closely to what we wanted. Equally as important, he delivered our website on schedule and on budget.

Scott Layman always brings his A game to the our meetings of the mind. His experience and his unending drive to create solutions that meet the need leave him few rivals. He also keeps me out of trouble, an ongoing challenge.

I have had the pleasure to work with Scott on many projects over the years. Like the typical start-up, we needed everything "Yesterday". Scott rolled with the punches and really helped to bring our product concepts to life. We utilized his talents across many different mediums from photography, video, logo designs, label designs, and even some radio audio work. Professional, Flexible and Master of his craft are ways in which I would describe my experiences with Mr. Layman.

My film history with Thomas Scott Layman extends for about 12 years. Scott and I were the producing duo behind the first two projects I ever wrote for the screen — “Party of 50” (2013) and “I’ll Have Another...” (2016). Our hard work paid off, for both feature and short film found their way into some national film festivals. Viewers of each film tended to chime in with the following comments and questions — “I enjoyed the ‘look’ of this film.”....”I like the way that shot was framed.”....“Who was your cinematographer?”.... “How did you achieve that lighting? Was it natural or filtered in post production?” ALL of the aforementioned can be attributed to the masterful eye, keen preparation, and creative lensing of Thomas Scott Layman.

I have worked with Scott for over 23 years. For 16 of those years he has been my Creative Director. Scott is not only a highly talented and skilled graphics guy, he’s right there with the best of them when it comes to website design as well as video shooting and editing. Best of all, he is fun to work with, ego and pride of authorship never get in the way of a great end product and he never raises his voice or gets in a surly mood. On top of all this, his rates are reasonable, he works fast and efficiently and he never pads his invoice...a lot of ".bang for your buck.".

I have worked on projects with Scott for 10 years. Most of the projects I was involved in were related to customized software he built from the ground up for us to help generate batch or lot specific labels as well as to provide customer facing testing results of the products the customer can access. He always was thinking ahead not only on just the project but how it tied into current and potential future business needs. Scott works as your partner and provides feedback and alternative ideas that frequently improve upon your original idea. He has a very wide skill set and is willing to find creative solutions to the problem set you have. I highly recommend Scott and plan to keep working with him in the future.

I first met Scott in 2011 on the set of Spielberg’s Lincoln and admired his creativity. When I decided to run for Richmond City Council a few months later, I called him because he was accomplished in photography, film, graphic and web design. He was able to put together a broad campaign that included logo, direct mail, palm cards, buttons, yard signs, etc. Scott’s great work contributed to my win in 2012 and reelection in 2016. I called on Scott’s services again for our needs with the Capital Region Land Conservancy and continue to do so today.

We have worked with Scott for over 14 years. He developed our first website and now recently completed an update on that same website. Both times he has taken ideas in my head and make them into reality, no matter how crazy they sound. During those 14 years, our website has always been at the top of search engines, generating website leads, phone calls, and most importantly sales. What I really like about working with Scott is his knowledge and ability to quickly learn new programs and ideas that we integrate into the website. Beyond websites, Scott have also custom designed all of our print literature from brochures, rack cards, catalogs and prices lists. I have recommended his many times in the past and will continue to do so in the future.

We have had the pleasure of working with Scott for close to 19 years. His work is second to none; whether he is coming up with the creative direction, shooting, editing or what ever, its always spot on the first go around. With Scott you get big agency professional work with caring personal service. I can assure you that you will NOT be disappointed.
