Darren Taylor

Studio Lead

Sporty outdoor lover Darren has played a hand in most areas of Door4’s production and output since joining in 2007. During this period he’s designed, produced and deployed countless websites, using all the key web applications and frameworks.


Senior designer, senior management team member and digital senior citizen, Darren has been a Door4 mainstay since a career progression from print to digital years ago.

This early-adopting innovator was instrumental in the integration of WordPress, Magento and Adobe Creative Cloud within the studio’s collective skillset.

Illustrator, art director and UX/UI developer – he handles key account work and collaborates closely with internal and external project teams to deliver success.


In the fraction of free time not devoted to being a husband and dad of two, Daz packs in a lot including: golf; gigs; running; swimming; cycling and cooking. (Phew!)

He’s also a football fan, supporting Man City since before they were good, and enjoys dabbling in the occasional game of friendly five-a-side.

His latest (and worthiest) venture is an open-water swim in Salford Quays for a brain cancer charity, inspired by the diagnosis and survival of a friend’s son. (Sponsor Daz here).

“Anyone that says designers can’t code – or vice versa – hasn’t met Daz.”
