Alice Taylor wears many hats: Gamer, 3D toy designer, blogger, and creative. An expert at bridging the physical and digital, she's shaking up the gaming industry with her creativity and flare.

SHE'S A MAKIE MAKER

Before joining the team at Disney StudioLab, Alice Taylor was the visionary behind MakieLab—a startup that gave users the chance to design and 3D print dolls based on their online avatars. Cool, right?

GAMER AT HEART

A proud Brit and gamer, Taylor attributes her love of building, dissecting, and discussing games to playing Pac Man and Galaga at age 7 with her dad at a local pub. She’s on gaming console XBL under “AliceTaylor” and on Quake4 as “Crystaltips”—think you can take her?

Blogger Extraordinaire

She founded and ran the blog Wonderland where you can still read her musings on everything from Zelda-themed Monopoly to inspiring game designs. You won’t be disappointed.

Advocate for Equitable Gaming

Bringing the same level of passion to industry challenges as she does to game development, Taylor is a fierce advocate for reinventing gaming that is accessible to all people and protects the mental health of game developers. On Instagram, she calls on followers to consider questions like “what if you could plug a console into a damn cardboard box” and shines a light on the social media vitriol often aimed at developers.

A Disney Accelerator

Before signing on with Disney, Taylor and her startup MakieLab were selected for Disney’s coveted Accelerator program. There, she was able to take the idea of using games and apps to create 3D dolls to a new level.
