Chimera Collective is a co-adventure of two graphic designers who wanted to work together to help businesses and non-profits who can't afford to have a full time designer on staff. With over a decade of combined experience working with small businesses, non-profits, and print publications, they’ve learned a trick or two. Equipped with a collaborative mentality, creativity, and a lot of determination, they’re ready to conquer every project that comes their way. Whether you’re looking for a new logo, a stellar brochure, or just need some social media help, Chimera is ready.

A steward of personality assessments, Caryn loves to understand what makes people tick. This ability to identify with people drives her desire to design because each design should perfectly portray the client it's created for.  When she’s not working, you can usually find her in the kitchen trying new recipes, reading too far into obscure topics, or secretly teaching her one year-old son to love musical theatre behind her husband’s back.

Noah is a storyteller who enjoys communicating through design, photography, and live theatre.

He has spent several years developing his artistic craft, from working in commercial photo retouching for national brands to founding and leading a non-profit community theatre. He loves all things art and community, but mostly loves his little family and learning as much as he can about his newborn son.

As a City employee, I have contracted and worked with Noah Taylor on a variety of projects such as design campaigns for downtown events and entrepreneurial programs. Not only is he efficient, professional and organized, he also produces extremely creative products that cater to one’s specific target audience. Noah’s artistic eye is reflected in all of his work. Whether it’s a billboard design, event flyer, Main Street banner or digital campaign, one can always pinpoint his work through high quality, magnetic designs that demand attention on every platform.
