Taylor opened Resolution Digital Type and Image in 1993 with an AGFA imagesetter and a dream. He quickly became the preferred prepress and design partner of many local and regional businesses.
Taylor hired Ian while Ian was still at the University of Georgia and taught him the difference between RGB, CMYK, and Pantone spot colors, the right resolution for crystal clear image reproduction, how to run film for a press, and the basics of layout and design. After graduation, Ian moved to Atlanta and spent the next twenty years learning all he could about design and development.
Slowly but surely the word got out that Resolution provided great graphic design in addition to prepress and Taylor built a loyal base of happy clients. He ran Resolution as a very successful one-man shop specializing in print design and production without so much as a sign on the door.
Twenty years later, there was a homecoming of sorts when Ian returned to Resolution as a partner and brought all he had learned about advertising, marketing, web design, and development.
Together, they reenvisioned Resolution and set out on a mission to make marketing and advertising suck less. Today they operate as a full-service advertising agency intent on getting real results for their clients.

Prior to partnering at Resolution, Ian worked as a designer and developer throughout the southeast for big hitters in advertising including BBDO South, Ogilvy and Mather, Miller Zell, Cartoon Network, and weather.com. He fell in love with programming and spent twelve years as Senior Applications Developer at DaVita.
He extracted the best processes from these experiences to develop a unique and effective process for strategy and user-centric design.
When he is not obsessing over strategy, user experience, or code, he teaches web design, programming, and coaches First Lego League at Double Helix STEAM School. He will also serve as the merchandise co-lead for AthFest 2017.

Daniel is a long-time Athens resident with over 15 years experience working and consulting on marketing design.
He takes a strategic approach to design and branding and creates a visual conversation between the client and their audience. He believes every element from typography to color palette should speak to that community in the context of their shared values. This type of branding can shape perceptions, both visceral and intellectual, and integrate our client’s brand into their community.
