In addition to being creative and original, Winn manages to turn out copy incredibly fast, and always delivers multiple options for our short-form campaigns. She creates content that speaks to our branding and audience.
She's my go to for all content creation and copywriting!"
Support / Engagement/ Culture Marco Polo
"Winn is an amazing writer and person! Marco Polo is a free video communication app, for helping people feel close. We worked together to find great user stories. Winn was really flexible and has an awesome turn around on writing up stories. She was able to bring the "goosebump" factor out in really touching stories and could really capture the user's voice. She's easy to work with, a real team player. I can't recommend Winn enough!"

"When Microsoft wanted to blow peoples' minds with an incredible event experience, I called in Winn to work her magic. In a matter of 5 weeks she helped us pull off one of the most ambitious, out-of-the-box creative feats that Microsoft has ever undertaken.
Winn crafted an Alice In Wonderland style lounge complete with magical creature furniture built from new and re-purposed materials. This work won top awards from the advertising industry — and more importantly, her creations are now a part of the permanent Microsoft art collection.
If you are looking for a visionary artist, a trusted partner, a great collaborator, and an unbelievably hard worker, look no further than Winn Apple Taylor."

Her legacy still runs deep in the Farley's organization and we have managed to keep her close to us by engaging her to help us with our marketing and social media.
In addition marketing, she is an artist, maker and writer. She transforms cast-off furniture into whimsical creations for children of all ages (even grown up children) and writes stories for children. She does this out of a deep purpose to use her talents to make the world a better place.

Product Manager at Whistle
Winn was an absolute pleasure to work with and all-star contributor! Not only is she a creative and unconventional thinker, Winn is a colorful writer that keeps the audience top of mind and is methodical in her approach to creating messaging and content. She knows how to ask the right questions, have a distinct yet synergistic POV, embody different writing styles, and aptly balance articulating technical subjects with a familiar and inviting tone. I appreciated how she brought personality and a fresh voice to the brand while partnering seamlessly across the organization - all the while being a positive spirit and a complete joy to be around. Winn certainly has the depth and quality of a good writer; a skill that is evenly matched by her amiable and giving spirit in which fuels her writing.
