At Taylor Design, we collaborate with our clients to learn together and develop user-centered solutions that are effective, meaningful, and delightful.


Our strategy-based design process is an iterative approach that leverages the best of lean methodology, human-centered design, and design thinking. We believe in getting to the most meaningful outcome as efficiently as possible, with human needs in mind. This includes questioning core assumptions, investigating existing conditions, exploring analogous industries, understanding the competitive landscape, and observing behaviors in context. This holistic approach opens new paths for discovery and unleashes ideas that lead to innovative outcomes.
