About the Artist


F. Scott Scinta

Scott is a native of Louisville and a graduate of Trinity High
School. As a student in the Advanced Art Program, he discovered his
interest in art. He attended the University of Louisville and earned
a B.F.A. from the prestigious Ringling College of Art and Design in
Sarasota, Florida. Scott returned to Louisville where he joined Naiser
Design, the second oldest advertising agency in Louisville. He was
with Naiser Design for 27 years and served as Vice President and
Senior Creative Director. With Scott’s focused organization, broad
experience in reaching various audiences, a commitment to the highest
level of quality and professionalism and a genuine enjoyment of
the process, Scott is able to listen, articulate and follow-through with
fresh, memorable solutions that both enhance the original concept, as
well as, reflect the personality of the client.

In 1994, he and his twin brother, Greg formed Smashgraphix,
a division of Naiser Design. This arm of the business served as a
publishing company specializing in creating and producing high-end
collector prints.

In 2008, Scott and Greg resigned from Naiser Design to further
their careers solely with Smashgraphix, operating as a full service
design firm and publishing company. Scott has won numerous design
competitions, including: one Addie Award (American Advertising
Federation); two Louis Awards (Best of Louisville); seven Silver Louis
Awards, a Bronze Award from the Three-Dimensional Illustration
Show, which is published; six PIAS Awards of Excellence and a PIAS
Certificate of Merit; the Louisville Graphic Design Association logo
competition and the Nationwide Paper competition. His work has
been selected to be a part of The Ringling College of Art and Design
permanent collection, The Indiana State Museum in Indianapolis,
Indiana, and the University of Kentucky Basketball Museum in Lexington,


In Memory of F. Gregory Scinta 1958-2012


Greg graduated from Trinity High School, attended the University of Kentucky and graduated from the Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota, Fla. Greg was interested in the visual arts since the early ‘70s when he learned the basics from Jim Connell '63 at Trinity High School.  

Greg and his brother Scott were co-owners of Smashgraphix, operating as a full-service design firm and publishing company.  His advertising career began with The Robb Report Magazine. During his career, Greg received many awards, the CASE Advancement Award, two PRSA-IABC Landmark of Excellence Awards, three Pias and a Bronze from the 3-Dimentional Illustration Show.  He was on the advisory board at Mercy Academy and former president of the River City BNI.   

Greg was quite generous to our community in recent years. He supported many of our city's local schools and charities by donating collector prints and artwork for auctions and fund-raisers; recently the shadow box art of memorabilia used in the Trinity High School.  The original art of the “Through The Years” football print sold for $26,355 at the Trinity Benefit dinner/auction in 1998. Greg also sat  on the advisory board at Mercy Academy and served as president of the River City Chapter of BNI (Business Network International).  His work was selected to be a part of the University of Kentucky Basketball Museum in Lexington. 

In addition to his professional work and accomplishments, Greg gave countless hours of his talent to Trinity High School. Greg's in-kind gifts of design work flows from his belief in his mission and love of his alma mater. Greg was also a strong supporter of both the Trinity Annual Fund Appeal and the Spirit of Trinity capital campaign.  

Each spring the Trinity High School Alumni Association recognizes a brother alumnus as the year’s Honor Alumnus. Greg and his brother Scott were recognized as the 2010 Trinity High School Honor Alumni. Greg was a wonderful example for Trinity alumni to follow. He gave generously of his time, talent and treasure, and put his very best effort into everything he did as a business partner, artist, husband and father. He never failed to acknowledge his Trinity High School roots.

Greg will be missed by many people, especially those in the Trinity community.
