Matt Taylor

Owner of Taylor Creative

  • I am extremely passionate about design and highly motivated to create the best results for my clients.
  • No need for multiple designers because I can design everything you’ll need, the logo and brand, a book layout, photography or design, build and host a website.
  • I am quality driven and strive to provide excellence in all I do.
  • I have very competitive pricing without compromising on the quality.

History – Personal

Below is a music inspired personal history. Hover over the song titles to see the artist and then click to play their music video via YouTube. Please enjoy my eclectic taste in music.

MADE IN ENGLAND in 1973, Matt emerged ALIVE AND KICKING at 10:15 SATURDAY NIGHT, 14th of April, under the NORTHERN SKY of Stockport, Manchester. Raised by BLUE MOON supporters (MCFC), he burst THROUGH THE BARRICADES and followed the team IN LIVERPOOL singing YOU’LL NEVER WALK ALONE.
There AIN’T NO SUNSHINE up north, so his FAMILY AFFAIR moved away from the CITY OF BLINDING LIGHTS, and headed south on A LONG AND WINDING ROAD to a COUNTRY HOUSE surrounded by STIFF UPPER LIP southerners.
THE GUNS OF BRIXTON and too much ANARCHY IN THE UK became TOO MUCH TOO YOUNG and HARD TO HANDLE for the SOUTHERN MAN so he needed a fresh START. With a RUSH OF BLOOD TO THE HEAD, he said HELLO GOODBYE on a SUNNY AFTERNOON and traveled ALL AROUND THE WORLD in a YELLOW SUBMARINE on the SEVEN SEAS OF RHYE. Wearing only BAGGY TROUSERS, BLUE SUEDE SHOES and a LEOPARD-SKIN PILL-BOX HAT Matt brought SEXY BACK to the 4 SEASONS IN ONE DAY, PARADISE CITY of Christchurch.
FELL IN LOVE WITH A GIRL, a BROWN EYED GIRL and pretty soon after PUT A RING ON IT. It was JUST THE TWO OF US until a bit of SLAP AND TICKLE, we were UP THE JUNCTION and now I’m A MAN WITH A CHILD IN HIS EYES. HERE IT GOES AGAIN, DAUGHTER No.2 and now MARRIED WITH CHILDREN. We can’t live on BANANA PANCAKES and PEACHES forever, GIRLS JUST WANT TO HAVE FUN, so make some CHANGES and I’ll give you a stunning DESIGN FOR LIFE.
