David Taylor, founder of drink and tobacco branding specialist David Taylor and Company, has died after a short illness.
Taylor set up his consultancy in 1979. ‘We are all very saddened by David’s sudden death,’ says Zaina Alhadad, recently appointed managing director of the consultancy. ‘David was already planning to become less involved in the day-to-day running of the business. His tragic death has made us bring these plans forward. I am sure we can continue to develop the business from the strong foundations and design ethos which David created.’
