About

My interest in visual design started at an extremely young age. Page layout design on Microsoft Word was just the beginning, and eventually stemmed into basic HTML during the MySpace craze. From then, I worked my way up to Yearbook Editor at my high school in the small city of Toledo, Ohio. It all started from there.

I majored in Visual Communication Technology at Bowling Green State University with a large concentration on business marketing. My program was centered around print design, interactive media, photography, and video. I interned with my University's College of Education and Human Development marketing department, The National Hockey League digital design team in New York City, and digital marketing agency Queen City Media in Buffalo, New York. 

My post-grad positions have covered a wide variety of mediums, which has helped to keep my constant hunger for knowledge fresh. My experiences in the hospitality industry have helped my positions to remain fast-paced and current. I'm always looking to extend my creative abilities in every way possible and believe that comfortability in a position means its time to move to the next adventure. My goal as a designer is to always be growing and pushing the envelope.

You can usually find me with my friends and family, watching a hockey game, snuggling with my cat Stevie Nicks, or listening to my latest Spotify playlist while taking photos of the gorgeous city of New York.

I'm always looking for new and exciting freelance work, locally or remote. Whether you need a quick logo or a full-blown marketing campaign, let's create something incredible.

Testimonials

Taylor has all the qualities of a great designer - a willingness to always learn, the ability to take criticism on projects, and constantly looking for inspiration, but what sets her apart is her firm understanding of her audience, which allows her work to feel very personal. Her past job experience, freelance work, and self-starter mentality allowed her to excel in her position as a Senior Designer at the bank, providing designs for websites, print collateral, and corporate branding. Her ability to juggle several projects and meet quick turn-times without compensating quality of work was always appreciated by my team and me. Taylor’s knowledge and skills would enhance any team’s productivity and creativity.
— James Flores, Former Supervisor
I worked with Taylor on a logo design for my fitness brand. She was able to give me an amazing design for my business and one that truly fit what I needed to have that creative edge to my brand. She put in great attention to the detail I wanted and was very clear about updates, reviews, and ensuring it was exactly what I wanted. I highly recommend her for any of your brand designs! She has a creative edge and passion that puts her above any other designer. Don’t miss out on an opportunity to grow your business and your brand by working with Taylor! You won’t regret it.
— Erin Porter, Beauty & the Beast Fitness, Founder
One of the best things about Taylor is she is a huge team player. On more than one occasion she has stepped up and taken on extra work to help a co-worker. She is not afraid to dive into a project and really commit to help the department as a whole succeed.

Taylor’s growth within the department has been dramatic. Since she started her work ethic, attention to detail and communication skills has increased tenfold. She has taken steps to branch out her skill set as well as hone skills she already possesses. She quickly became an integral part of our branding and design team.
— Celeste McGrogan, Former Colleague
