Taylor Darcy started at ALKU in 2019 as a Brand and Design Coordinator. Since day one she has made a monumental impact. Taylor is an incredible graphic designer and has a talent for bringing your ideas to life. She is one of the most pleasant people to work with, she always has a smile on her face. Taylor is extremely hardworking and is always there to help and support her team and ALKU in any capacity. She is the type of person that no matter what you’re asking, she will be there. She is always the first one to step in and help out even if it is outside of her job description.
Beyond Taylor’s ability to work well within a team and bring the energy up around everyone who interacts with her is her ability to do her job. Taylor is an incredible graphic designer, and it shows. She has elevated ALKU’s internal and external branding to match our growth and the level of services we provide. Any ALKU material that you come across, you can look at it and know that Taylor designed this.
In the past two years, Taylor has created our brand guidelines and redesigned all our internal and external materials. Over the past year, she has redesigned our logo and helped build and redesign our website. On the Talent side, Taylor has given our College Relationship Development team their own branding to stand out on campus. In addition to redesigning our social graphics and offer presentations for internal candidates. Beyond design, Taylor manages ALKU’s swag vendor relationship, is a Business Technology Ambassador, and participates in multiple ALKU Gives Back initiatives. Not only is Taylor an incredible designer, but her communication, attention to detail, and ability to manage multiple projects at once is unmatched.
With this and much more, we are thrilled to announce the promotion of Taylor Darcy to Senior Brand and Design Coordinator!
“Taylor! AKA Taylor-Made! I couldn’t be happier for you and this promotion to Senior. When you came into the ALKrew two short years ago, I couldn’t have imagined the impact you would have not only on myself, the Marketing team, but the entire company. It really is hard to imagine ALKU pre-Taylor. You have elevated us in so many ways, from the energy you bring to the Marketing team every day to a brand-new company logo!! Before you, I don’t even want to remember what our sell sheets looked like. I don’t even think we had social media graphics… let alone a logo for multiple programs like Futures & $100k. You truly have made ALKU a better place, not only from a graphic and design standpoint, but a place to work. You bring an energy and level of work ethic that makes everyone around you want to be better. I am so proud of everything you have accomplished and the person you have become over these past two years. I know this is just the beginning for you and I cannot wait to see where you take us. Love you, Tay. Congratulations – no one deserves it more;” – Rebecca Crossley, Director of Marketing
“I am so excited to be writing this quote for Taylor’s promotion! Since she started at ALKU 2 years ago, Taylor has continuously improved ALKU’s look, brand, culture, and more. Over the past 6 months, Taylor has proven even more at how good she truly is at her job. When tasked with creating a brand-new logo, look, and design for ALKU, which is no easy feat, she blew us all out of the water! She worked diligently to ensure that she was creating something that truly embodies what ALKU really is about. Taylor comes in every day willing to take on new projects, no matter how big or small, help team members with anything and everything Marketing, and she does it all with a smile on her face! Taylor is truly one of the best hires that ALKU has ever made and I am so lucky to have seen her grow over the past two years and to call her a friend. Congratulations, Taylor! I am so excited to see what you continue to accomplish in this new role and beyond!”– Maddie Eldridge, Marketing Manager
“There are times when you meet someone and you are just blown away by how much smarter they are than you, that’s how I felt when I met Taylor Darcy. ALKU has made a few “game-changing” hires since starting the company and Taylor is unquestionably one of them. Taylor’s creativity and attention to detail is something ALKU needed, but we didn’t know we needed it until we started seeing some of Taylor’s ideas come to life. Her work is simply incredible and has completely elevated our company. Since Taylor joined ALKU she has changed the way we think about things from a marketing perspective. We look more professional with our new logo she created, presentations are immaculate and immersive, and not to mention some of the videos and graphics she has put together have made the unthinkable become possible. I really can’t even count the number of times we have been in a meeting, thought of an idea and the answer has been “Taylor can help with that.” While Taylor has brought ALKU a new skillset we haven’t seen before, she also brought an energy and passion that sets her apart from everyone. Working with Taylor is always fun and collaborative, and she has put so much time into understanding how the company functions and where she can help us grow. During her 2 years with ALKU Taylor has also focused on bettering herself and the team as much as she possibly can. This promotion is so well deserved, and I am so happy that we have Taylor with us today because at this point, we can’t live without her! Congratulations on your senior promotion Taylor!” – James Cassin-Reed, Director of ERP Sales
