Taylor Reed

Raised in Spokane, Taylor Reed, 27, was a junior at Seattle Pacific University contemplating a career as a marketing guru or musician when one afternoon in a frame shop the manager mentioned he had a "special eye" for visual imagery. Something clicked, he shifted his focus to graphic design and never looked back.

Meet Electric Coffin at the 2016 SEGD Conference: Experience Seattle

Meet Electric Coffin at 2016 SEGD Conference Experience Seattle!

Patrick “Duffy” De Armas and his partners at Electric Coffin are in the business of bringing fine-art sensibilities to commercial spaces, and they’re unapologetic about their improvisational process and their point of view. If that display of a 1960s ski chalet turns left and becomes a pink bakery, so be it. We spoke with Duffy about his Seattle studio’s process and purpose, and we got project photos you’ll love. De Armas will be a featured speaker at the 2016 SEGD Conference: Experience Seattle!
