Welcome


This is the online home of award-winning Writer & Creative, Steve Taylor

Who am I? I'm a copywriter, but that barely scratches the surface. I'm a thinker, an ideasmith, a salesperson, a storyteller and an innovator. If you look even deeper, you'll notice I'm a juggernaut when it comes to the web and social media. And let's not forget that effective research is second nature to me. I understand that powerful copy requires an emotional investment in every word—every single letter—that's placed on the page. Without it, you merely fall in line with all the other 'cut-and-paste' stories that bombard our lives with mental clutter. 

How did I get this way? Through years of honing my creative capacity to quickly obtain, understand and utilize knowledge. When combined with my broad liberal arts background and strong design mentality, this results in an impeccable ability to conceptualize the "big picture" and execute accordingly. I also have a rather unique talent that allows me to find deep emotional connections within people, places and brands... and that's not a skill you can ever teach. 

What does it all mean? I'm forever in beta testing and constantly striving to improve my abilities, evolve my skills and better myself as a creative. It's why I'll never be satisfied with what I knew yesterday. I'd rather help to tell the world what they should know tomorrow.

Brand Experience


While many of these icons contain links to work samples, due to confidentially reasons and the ever-changing nature of the industry, I'm unable to share all my work. So, please feel free to take a look around and I will add more as I am able.

Resume


I know paper resumes are a tad outdated, so I did the world a favor and made mine into a handy, dandy PDF! However, I'd also recommend checking out my LinkedIn page for kind words and recommendations from some of my colleagues. They sure know how to make a guy feel special.
