“...Taylor Studios was absolutely the best contractor on the job. I give them my highest recommendation without reservation and I have steadfastly recommended them for other projects. There is no better mannequin maker or no firm that will give you better service.”

Taylor Studios’ team is comprised of project managers, designers, artists, interpretive planners, business people, a German Shepherd, and a cat. We work in a casual environment and our employees are smart, upbeat, and like to have fun. While the atmosphere in which we work is relaxed, our approach to our projects is not. Our project managers follow well-defined processes and each department follows well thought-out procedures to ensure our projects and departments run efficiently.
Establishing a good relationship with clients with open and constant communication is key to successful projects. Understanding a client's unique needs allows us to develop strategies to create exhibits that meet and exceed the goals on time and within budget. We have a reputation for being easy to work with and flexible and we work closely with our clients on everything from research to fabrication methods. This teamwork allows for projects that are educational, creative, accurate, and memorable.
Creative, Cooperative Design Process
An important facet of the creative design process is the thoughtful integration of the client's human and material resources with our own. There are often situations where the client's existing layout, exhibits, staff, and collections make a significant contribution to the best design solutions. Working closely with the client has consistently proven to produce the best results.
Taylor Studios, Inc. strives to always price services competitively. When Betty Brennan and Joe Taylor founded Taylor Studios, they saw a need for high quality exhibit fabrication that both small and large institutions could afford. Keeping this industry need in mind, they focused on building an efficient, productive studio that concentrated on maintaining low overhead. This was accomplished in many ways. Taylor Studios has a modern accounting system which allows for efficient bidding and controlled expenses. Financial planning, inventory control, budgeting, procurement, and many other aspects of the business are closely managed and constantly evaluated for performance. The facility is simple but modern, with no extravagant extras.
