As it's pretty obvious...hello, my name is Taryn and I'm an Enneagram type 3, INFJ-T on the Myers Briggs, and a Taurus, but most importantly, I'm a digital designer that isn't afraid to step outside of the box.
I specialize in creating aesthetic, custom brands that help unique individuals and their dreams get noticed for their skills and talent. While always having an overflowing creative side as a kid, I fell in love with the structure and purpose of design in the original days of online journaling.
After studying business advertising and marketing in college to understand the psychology behind what makes design work, I then dove into full creative studies. Since 2010, design has been my full focus, experimenting with various environments in the field that range from large to small and corporate to creative. My work has been just as diverse - reaching numerous mediums, including web and print. Along the way, I’ve had the privilege to work with many amazing clients and gain experience to share through my writing and mentorship opportunities.
As a passionate creative myself, I want to help you bring your business ideas to life, and am dedicated to creating designs that will help you achieve just that. I use my attention to detail, unique design process, and experienced design skills to help people with a passion showcase and market their talent. I'm interested in your unique story and ideas to help birth a visual that's perfect for that dream.
Outside of design, I'm a full time dog mom, coffee enthusiast, and music and podcast addict with a sense of wanderlust that takes me on as many adventures as I can go on. I have a pun-based sense of humor and a love of conspiracy theories. You can frequently find me at the barrier of a concert singing the lyrics of my favorite songs at the top of my lungs back at the artists who have formed who I am.
Having empathy means I can place myself in the positions of my clients to capture the visual aspect of their needs. I engage, learn, and connect with the user to gain understanding of your project. I learn about past, current experiences, and future goals and observe to derive key insights and focus on detail.
I use a psychological approach to research the pieces that will make up your design. By identifying the unmet need, I address a creative solution that dives deep into solving the purpose and the why of each project. Resources are gathered and analyzed to create a moodboard that compasses concepts.
I look for alternate and unconventional ways of addressing the problem and solving the need. Concepts are created, generating innovating ideas and thinking out of the box. I narrow down the "what ifs" and use a fine tooth comb to package the concepts into usable ideas.
The best ideations are put into motion. I add creative and engaging details with layers of substance taken from my research. By joining forces with my client, the prototypes continue to refine and improve until the design is perfected both in aesthetic and functional purposes.
