From 2006-2010, Dadich was the award-winning creative director of WIRED, where he initiated and led the development of WIRED's groundbreaking iPad app. Building upon that success, Dadich and his team have led all of Conde Nast’s brands into monthly tablet publication across multiple digital platforms.

He is the only creative director to win both the National Magazine Award for Design and the Society of Publication Designers Magazine of the Year award for three consecutive years: 2008, 2009, and 2010. Additionally, he has received more than 100 national design and editorial awards from organizations such as the Art Directors Club, American Photography, American Illustration, The Society of Illustrators, and the Type Directors Club. In 2011, Fast Company named Dadich one of the 50 Most Influential Designers in America. He currently serves on the board of directors for the American Society of Magazine Editors (ASME) and The People's Portfolio, a nonprofit organization dedicated to respecting and upholding human rights, through portrait photography by renowned photographer Platon.
Prior to joining Conde Nast, Scott was creative director of Texas Monthly, which was nominated for 14 National Magazine Awards during his tenure and won for General Excellence in 2003.
