Steph loves things in rainbow order.

Art Director

Stephanie is motivated by beautiful typefaces. And she believes in the power of a beautiful color palette—like those of our clients Foundation Source and the Chazen Institute of Global Business. Steph must get organized before getting to work. While designing, illustrating, or just home on the weekends with her husband and kids, she likes listening to to current music, throwback music, and her weekly Spotify playlist.

Before Taylor: Web design, book design, and branding projects in studios around Connecticut. She is a 2009 graduate of UConn’s Communication Design program.
