Sheffield GB August 2015
Hello there. My name is Nick Taylor and my work encompasses graphic design, illustration and art direction.
I produce illustration work with a bold, imaginative style, working primarily in editorial. I like to bring concepts to life with visual flair.
I also run Spectral, a design and art direction studio, producing work for print and digital, across many mediums including packaging, websites, posters, books/magazines, apparel and brand identities. A willingness to experiment while referencing the design of the past is central to what Spectral does. My background in printmaking, specifically screen-printing constantly informs the design process.
Feel free to get in touch if you like what you see, I would love to hear from you.
