Studio Guided Project – Taunt Studio Research

So who exactly are Taunt?

Well Taunt was co-founded by Fiona McLaughlin and Tom Getty. However, this almost didn’t happen.

In an interview with Womenfolk, Fiona stated;

“That being said, Taunt nearly didn’t happen at all. Tom started freelancing and I moved to Berlin. Eventually, I decided to move back to Belfast and it felt like a now or never moment for us both to start the studio.”

Fiona is a graduate from Ulster University and Tom Getty is a graduate from Bournemouth.

Fiona was a bit like myself. Fiona said she initially wanted to do ceramics, although changed her mind. In my foundation year, my two specialisms where ceramics and animation, animation was a bit more satisfying. Although, I still love to create little moquettes time to time.


The bevey of avenues within the industry they cater too is great to see. They seem to be virtuoso’s within the industry and shows what they also look out for too.

Seeing the work that this small team generates, their thoughts and values make them an intriguing company to get in touch with. I am happy to get work underway.
