Established in 2007
We love working with new people. Almost as much as we love building projects as unique as our clients are.
For over a decade and a half, we have been helping brands of all sizes craft websites, logos, and various design pieces to help define who they are visually. When it comes to design, many companies simply want to finish the job quickly and move on. We, however, want to build you a finished project that effectively tells your story.
Our first client website completed was in 2004 for the now closed Hartman's Family Restaurant. In 2006, the first iteration of www.thejtsite.com goes live.
Working out of the house in Nazareth, PA, we officially kicked things off in 2007. Just in time for the 2008 financial crisis.
2008 - 2010
We created our first mobile-friendly website betting phones might be a thing for a while. In 2010 we won our first Addy award and were also feature as Site of The Day on Awwwards.
Our work is featured in a book titled Brilliant Web Design by Joe Kraynak & Ken Bluttman. If you can find a copy, check pages 9 and 35.
Exploring the DNA of J Taylor Design
The level of service you get matters just as much as the finished product. Unfortunately, these aren't a given. We won't name names.
- The Work
01 Invest in clients
Before we worry about money, we want to get to know you. Are we a good fit? Our time is equally valuable. Let's not waste it.
02 Don't sell anything
What do you actually need. Can we help with that? If so, great. If not? That's ok too. If we can't help solve a problem, we'll be the first to let you know.
03 Care about it all
Every project is an opportunity. And if you are going to do something, let's strive to do it right. If everything from the first chat through completing the work matters, it shows.
04 No RFPs
Our process is built around a human, communicative approach. If you are sending out RFPs to a bunch of companies without actually talking with those companies, we are not the right fit for you.
Take a short walk down memory lane. All the highs and lows got us to this point. We couldn't be more grateful.
Founded by James Taylor
No, not that James Taylor, but I did grow up on a country road• in the Lehigh Valley, PA.
My first experiences with a creative space came with music and traditional art which I carried through my academic career. Working with commercial creative was a smooth transition based on my personal goals for what I wanted my business to be and create.
Looking outside the Valley at the work being produced nationally and worldwide, it was clear to me that the most exciting brands had polished, modern, exciting creative. I wanted to work with clients where our passions were one in the same•. Branding and digital experiences don't have to be boring.
Since starting my business in 2007, I have had the pleasure of working with hundreds of brands both locally and nationally, won a few awards, gave back to local non-profits, served on the AAF GLV board, and pushed the boundaries for what I thought was possible for my business. I am consistently humbled by this opportunity... how sweet it is•.
