As Art Director for Rocky Mountain Institute, Chris was a great combination of creativity and strategic vision. He always took the initiative to take a project beyond what was asked. He also used a variety of team building exercises to structure the needs and creative ideas of a project. Gets along and works well in a team environment. I’d easily hire Chris again.
Chris and I worked for nearly 2 years together as the de-facto marketing team for Chamber Dance Project, of Washington, D.C. A small troupe, with a fiercely creative and daring choreographer, demanding intensive thought in the visual expression of her brand and work. Prior to teaming up with Christian, I had worked mostly in larger New York Branding and Advertising firms with no shortage of talented creative directors. Chris played at this level, with a somewhat more thoughtful view than most of communication strategy and tactics to build customer relationships and image consistent with overall strategy. His creative firepower was on display as a matter of course, and his ingenuity for clever and “noise” defying tactics was perhaps his strongest suit. I’m happy to chat with you or any of your colleagues about Chris. A considered, thoughtful and amiable individual. I’d sign up to work with him again in a heartbeat.
Christian Tailor-Low is a passionate Graphic Designer and Art Director. His ability to thoroughly understand a project from beginning to end is one of the best things about him. At the Shakespeare Theatre Company, the Marketing and Communications department worked closely on the productions our company produced. Chris was often the first person in our department to read the play and begin thinking about the best way to visually convey the feeling of the piece. Chris is a team player who enjoyed talking with co-workers to help with inspiration as well as help problem solve. I often went to Chris when I needed second opinions or help with an issue I couldn’t see a solution for. He’s creative, thoughtful, analytical and smart. He would be a great addition to any team.
I was one of Chris’s print vendors, and he was a pleasure to work with. His designs were thoughtful and creative. I always appreciated the fact that he liked to work collaboratively to ensure his designs were practical from a production standpoint. Chris would be an asset to any organization.
