The founder of 3D printing specialist MakieLab, Taylor says her career in games began at the age of 11, when she would map directions for the Acornsoft title Sphinx Adventure on the back of a roll of wallpaper.

Driven primarily by fun, Taylor picks her proudest moments as also including commissioning educational games on topics such as sex education and civil liberties and privacy.

Another career highlight was winning the Rising Star Inventor award at the Chicago Toy & Game Fair, representing Taylor's team's work on Makies, the world's first 3D printed toy.

In her own words: That was pretty chuffing good.”
