Talley-O is the collaboration of Taylor and Kelley [TA+LLEY] with a side of "O".

Where does the fox come from? Tally-ho is a very old traditional cry made by huntsman to tell others game has been sighted. It was first used in fox-hunting during the 19th century. Also, we just like foxes.

We worked in marketing and advertising for years on national accounts, developing creative campaigns based on their unique mission statements and target audiences. Our goal with Talley-O design is to combine this experience and gear it toward a more intimate work relationship with our clients, both on a local and national level. When you work with Talley-O, you know who you are working with directly and we take our communication and design work seriously. Your investment in your brand is emotional and soulful. We aim to create beautiful, forward-thinking design to reflect your desired aesthetic and values.
