Attributes that best describes:
My name is William H Taylor, a passionate and enthusiastic designer; born and raised in southwest Ontario, and currently residing in Kiev, Ukraine. After acknowledging my nerdish tendencies towards computers and technology, and knowing I had a flair for creativity and communication; I decided a career in Graphic Design would be an exciting route to take. After 3 years at Fanshawe College in London, Ontario, I earned my degree in Graphic Design & Arts and was ready to explore and engage my new found skills.
After moving out west, I found my place in Nanaimo, British Columbia in 2010 as the Graphic Designer for Print Three. I learned a great deal about what I was capable of as a creative professional, and how to work with clients to produce consistent, high-quality work. I also began my freelance design endeavours at this time. I then decided a move to the booming province of Alberta was in order, and I quickly found a position in 2012 as a Graphic Designer with Enbridge Inc in Calgary, Alberta. After just over a year on the job, I was promoted to Senior Graphic Designer, where I took on a greater deal of responsibilities and duties. This position has been invaluable to me in my growth as a professional, respected designer. I have attained a great deal about brand identity, project planning and development strategies, and the conventions of designing for a large corporation. I am currently on contract with several design and creative groups, and am always seeking new clients in my freelance design endeavours.
I am very drawn by good design; I can’t escape it. Signs, posters and logos jump out in front of my eyes on every street, in every room; and I enjoy the fact that what I do helps others’ ventures. But design is not my only interest; I am also a very passionate musician. I have been playing drums for roughly fifteen years, playing with a number of bands. With hundreds of live shows, and numerous recorded EPs in the trophy case; I also dabble on the bass guitar and love playing the acoustic djembe. Biking, skiing, travelling, friends, good books, good music, good design; and always alongside my big pup, Ted; that's how I enjoy my days.
I put a lot of effort and focus into everything I do, which comes out in my work and how I conduct my business. You will find that I am a very professional, cooperative, and considerate person to work with, and I want both of us to be proud of the work we create together.
