Taylor Lantelli profile picture Hey I'm Taylor, a Graphic Communication student at Birmingham City University. A lover of everything minimal & brightly coloured, mainly pink!

I enjoy all kinds of art and design and I would consider myself more of a 'maker' because I love creating tangible objects. In terms of graphic design my real passion lies in anything print and editorial. I find publications fascinating as I view every page as a separate piece of artwork. I wouldn't consider myself an illustrator, but illustration in its many forms have begun to creep into my work.

I try to combine my love of crafts and making with print design as much as possible and I hope people enjoy viewing my pieces as much as I do making them!

I was commissioned by a student in the Birmingham Conservatoire to design a CD cover for her final show of the year. The piece was called 'Dies Natalies' which translates as 'Day of Birth'. I explored the idea of seeds and growth which then led to a more abstract concept of constellations and birthstones.

Penguin Random House Design Awards 2016Penguin Random House Design Awards 2016

This was my submission for the Penguin Random House Design Awards for 2016, in the adult non-fiction category. I developed this concept by thinking of ways of communicating naivety and being female. The book itself tries to push away from stereotypes, so I felt a collage style scrap book cover that was designed as if it was the child before she became a woman, would work well.
