Over in our forums, our all-volunteer team of moderators are always looking for prolific, community-minded forum posters to join the team to help keep the discussions going. Today we are adding Taylor Welden [Ed. Note: whose work has been featured on Core] to our crew.
Taylor is an experienced Industrial Designer who operates his eponymous design firm in downtown Austin, TX. He's originally from Hershey, PA where he developed a fascination with the manufacturing equipment and processes used at the local Hershey Chocolate Factory where his mother worked for 30+ years. After earning his BFA of Industrial Design at the Savannah College of Art and Design, he founded Taylor Welden Industrial Design, a firm which provides advanced design services towards challenging projects for large corporate clients and start-up entrepreneurs around the world. Since then, he's worked with factories in China, The Philippines, Israel and several across the United States.
Taylor has a passion for the eclectic, such as old Swedish automobiles, competitive facial hair events, exotic rare fowl breeds, handmade Japanese textiles, steel bicycles, and Cobra buckles. He provides his softgoods ID expertise in his roles as Core77 Contributor, Wordsmith, and Gear Sleuth for Carryology, a web publication dedicated to "exploring better ways to carry." Additionally, he's a team member at Huckberry, building new brand partnerships and creating blog content. He's won a few design awards, but hates to boast.
We are honored to have him as a part of the team!
