Creative Director

Malcolm began his career in London, before moving to Tayburn, where he has been Creative Director, and latterly co-owner for the past 8 years.

During his tenure Tayburn has garnered two agency of the year titles, picked up over 100 industry accolades and now sits as one of only two UK agencies in the top 20 for creativity (Design Week) and design effectiveness (DBA).

He helped bring the Commonwealth Games to Glasgow in 2014 with their winning bid, developed and launched Standard Life's brand identity and led the work for The Yard - an extraordinary play centre for disabled children - that inspired the BBC's DIY SOS 'The Big Build' makeover.

He's judged at a number of awards and in 2015 was voted into The Drum Designerati – a list of the Top 50 most influential people working in design in the UK.


'Judging is being bombarded with great ideas all day long which is a good thing. And I'd love to see some work that's genuinely made life better for people.'
