In 2005, Taylor started Sanctuary Printshop. What began as a t-shirt screen printing shop seven years ago has now grown in to a design-build studio with clients and branding ranging from Austin small businesses to international corporations. On any given day, the small and gifted staff at Sanctuary is designing t-shirts, printing business cards, building the custom interior for your neighborhood bar and designing the brand identity of local Austin businesses. In short, Sanctuary is in the business of making things look cool.

How are you!?
Things are good, just priming up for F1 in here in Austin. We are making a Ferrari themed El Camino for a special event. Nothing is more fun than creating!

What was your favorite part of the Diana World Tour in Austin?
History, just seeing how much history of the Diana. Austin loves roots.

If you only had one day/night in Austin, how would you spend your time?
One night isn’t enough, but all my time would be spent on the East Side, there is so much life and excitement in the neighborhood and people. Maybe a new tattoo.

What elements of Austin (or Texas in general) inspire your work?
The people of Austin at their roots are positive. Music is inspiring and so are those out there shooting to be creative.

What is the most exciting thing that you are working on right now?
Just working on a cover up story for my internal investigation.

Of all the mediums that you work in, which are you most interested in right now? What kinds of materials are you drawn to?
Lighting! Lately it’s been a goal to find and reuse as many materials for exhaustive lighting structures for outside events/venues. Right now its a shell of a 65’ Volkswagen Bug. It hangs from a tree and hundreds of lumencents are inside it and shining down. Fun stuff.

Any particular influences that helped define/inspire your aesthetic?
Mainly seeing a jerry-rigged job of a solution is the most inspiring for the new project.

What’s the oddest, or most difficult, request you’ve ever gotten from a client?
Build a velodrome in a retail space. We did it. Division 1 Bikes opens this year on E 7th street.

Sactuary Printshop did an incredible job on our DWT window display this July!
