Hello, I’m Taylor Aldridge, a creative director and seasoned graphic UX designer.

Creative professional with 15+ years of in-house and agency expertise in creative strategy, integrated marketing, conceptual development, brand building, team leadership, design strategy, interaction and interface design, user experience, art direction, and social media.

My core strengths are crafting experience strategies, navigating the entire spectrum from UX to UI discovery and implementation, orchestrating integrated campaigns, and providing visionary leadership to creative teams. I have a clear track record of continual creative improvement, actively contributing to a culture of innovation, inclusion, excellence, and accountability. My professional journey spans both B2B and B2C models. I’m proud to have led, managed, and mentored cross-functional teams of diverse personalities in deadline-driven environments to achieve successful outcomes.

A Few Brands I’ve Helped

See what those who’ve worked with me have to say.

Taylor was a fantastic mentor and Creative Director while I worked for Brainstorm Media. He communicated clearly with his team, setting goals, and delegating tasks in a way that kept us all working within our strengths while moving our projects forward efficiently and successfully. Taylor was a leader who not only did his job well but genuinely cared about each member of his team. As a young designer, he took me under his wing, stretching and challenging my design skills and mentoring me through the process of brand design. I'm grateful for the time I got to spend working under Taylor, and I attribute much of the freelance success I had in the years following to what I learned from him.

Taylor is an amazing ideas man, which in turn makes him a great graphic designer. I have known him for a role that might not come through on a resume though. I have known him to be an accomplished mentor, to myself, and to others. Just recently, a protege of his gave a well-received TedTalk. Quick, frank and talented are words that come to mind when I think of Taylor. I have not a moment's hesitation in suggesting to someone that they should consider his services.

Taylor's has a unique combination of experience in working with clients remotely, and thinking of creative ideation from the point of view of solving for the clients needs rather than Design for Design’s sake. This results in an absolute pleasure of a working experience with a measurable return on design investment.

In 4 companies we have worked on together, Taylor has been a design, branding and really overall business strategist and has helped me in so many ways avoid dumb ideas and branding-design pitfalls.From SGA, to The G8 Exchange, to my home now at CULT Artisan Beverage Company, Taylor has made every piece of the branding come alive and convey the message that we are an Awesome company and it is all being done with an amazing Style and Feel. I could not have the success now or in my past without his steady hand and stellar mind. And the cool thing is that Taylor is helping shape our future and I am damn proud to have him working along side of The CULT Crew!

Taylor worked for Tatango as our remote go-to designer. He designed proposals, updates to our website, a few logos, and anything else we threw at him. When we needed some animation work, Taylor used his connections to pair us with a great animator and Art Directed the project. Taylor is a professional, responsive, and talented designer. He requires little oversight, is honest with his time, and manages to create great work while keeping our costs in mind. He is an asset to any company that requires frequent, diverse, and consistently well-branded design projects.
