Blue Chippers: Taylor Read, Savannah College of Art and Design Atlanta

Blue Chippers, a new content series focusing on students who have caught our attention.

As we round the week, let’s take a moment to recognize the guy who’s created over 80 visual pieces of content and composed some amazing animations you’ll see soon. We’re talking of course about the gentleman  scholar, Taylor Read from the Savannah College of Art and Design. Having lived a spell in England, Taylor brings the funny and absurd as much as he delivers visual sweetness.

Savannah College of Art and Design in Atlanta.

What’s your primary startup role?

Graphic Design.

If you could have any mentor in the world, who would it be and why?
Shigeru Miyamoto because he’s the creative mind for Nintendo. He’s just a really cool old dude who’s very creative and seems to be the most fun and most interesting person to talk to. Of course, I’d have to be able to speak Japanese, but that’s not going to stop me.

I kind of miss being around people more often because I live off campus.

To thank Taylor, we asked him to create this infographic summarizing his answers, because we certainly don’t have the skillz he does. Enjoy.
