For over 20 years, Scott Bellina has amassed an extensive portfolio of brilliant art direction and graphic design. Before founding BCBD, Scott honed his craft as lead creative in top agencies located in New Orleans, Dallas, London, and New York City.

A native of New Orleans, LA, he received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Louisiana State University with a concentration in graphic design. He was president of LSU’s Graphic Design Student Association in 1997-98 and a lead designer for LSU’s award-winning publication Legacy Magazine. Upon relocating to New York City in April 2001, Scott has worked with boutique design firms, publicly-traded interactive corporations, branding agencies, advertising agencies, global magazine publications, and in-house creative teams. In 2009, he founded Bellina Creative Design as Executive Creative Director. In March of 2016, Bellina Creative Design rebranded as BCBD.
Scott’s passion for visual design has generated a mastery of multiple core-competencies within his industry including, but not limited to: creative direction, brand strategy, graphic design, user-experience design, information architecture, interaction design, and copywriting. Scott excels in building client relationships and working in team-based environments.
Aside from his design-career, Scott is an ASCAP-published musician and a handcraft hot sauce entrepreneur. He also volunteers as a life coach for Landmark Education. Scott returned to LSU to speak to the graduating graphic design students in 2015, and continues to enjoy connecting with talented graduates in the field.
In March 2019, Bellina partnered with fellow LSU Design classmate, Scott Hodgin of Tilt Design, to develop branding for Bellina’s new handcrafted product line, Bayou Gotham® Hot Sauces.
