Taylor James is a creative collective, together we are more than the sum of our parts. We are animators, designers, filmmakers, photographers, producers, technologists working together to help our clients tell rich, engaging visual stories that create wonder and spark imagination.

We are artists who work together to create inspiring work and we have fun in the process.
