AdventureKEEN was a fortunate beneficiary of Scott McGrew’s creativity, design sensibility, loyalty, sense of humor, and friendship for nearly two decades, and we were devastated by his unexpected passing in late April after a short illness. He was 48.
As a staff cartographer and graphic designer, Scott created some truly amazing sketches, art, cover designs, and maps. He was able to simplify complex technical workflows to improve our printed books. Many AdventureKEEN authors were lucky to work with him to create some of the best guidebook maps in print today. Over the years, a lot of the company’s book covers benefited from his detailed eye for imagery and typography.
Scott was loved by his family, his friends, and everyone he worked with here. His jokes, smile, and camaraderie are greatly missed.
Goodbye, dear friend.
