Hey,

Designer.

Imagine being able to do design for a living, while earning enough money to pay the bills, travel, and live the life you love.

Sound like something you want? You’ve come to the right place.

This is the designer playbook.

A little business side-project I started when I realised how much help I can give to people I used to be just like.

I’m Taylor (Tay), I’m 26, and I run a successful graphic design business called Origami Graphics.

I remember the exact moment I decided to start it. I was in Sydney, dreading going back to work at a golf club reception desk after the weekend and wondered if that one-off pub design job I’d just been asked to do could actually become a Thing.

(It became a Thing.)

Fast forward four years and a lot of sweat, tears and work, and here we are. I’m stoked to be able to call my life’s passion my livelihood and I’ve decided it’s time to help others get there too.

The Playbook is a sweet little annex to my main website where I sell designer resources, for designers, by another designer. Cause I’ve got enough experience now to know what works, and I know not everyone wants to be scaling into an agency and hiring staff for growth. (The look on one of my friends’ faces when I said I wanted a cap on my growth.)

Warning – all my products may contain a *sprinkle* of coarse language, as it’s who I am as a person. lol

Are you one of these people?

#1: The stressed-out designer who’s hit an income ceiling and isn’t getting paid proportionally to their effort.
#2: The designer-at-heart who’s stuck in an office job that is Not It.
#3: The student who’s wondering if they can bounce straight out of graduation into freelancing and succeed. (That was me!)
#4: The mum or dad who’s wondering if they can support their family with their passion instead of their day job.

If you answered yes,

then the Designer Playbook was made specifically for you.

Get me the goods!

Here's what's on offer right now.
