A visual designer with a passion for branding, typography, and ideas that click. Taylor is constantly seeking inspiration outside of design in writing, podcasts, music, sports and entertainment. Understanding creativity as the ability to draw connections between concepts less apparent, I believe the best ideas are often products of thinking outside the practice. If you want to talk sports he’s in.
