Patty Palazzo is an American graphic designer who has worked with John Taylor and Duran Duran.


Patty was born and raised in Akron, Ohio, (USA) and graduated from Kent State University with a Graphic Design degree. She moved to Los Angeles on New Year's Eve in 1995 and has lived there ever since.

A qualified graphic designer, Patty has also worked as a personal assistant, web designer, webmistress, photographer, merchandiser, photo retoucher, videographer, and music editor. She worked with John Taylor in the mid-to-late 1990s, helping him create, run, and maintain his website, Trust The Process (TTP), a grassroots creative outlet for Taylor's music, thoughts, and ideas, and a way to maintain a connection with his fanbase. It was also a no-rules creative playground and experiment lab for Patty. She worked with John on designing all of his CD packaging as well as creating other merchandise, t-shirts, hoodies, stickers, posters, and a magazine.

In addition to working with John, Patty was brought in to create the logo identity for clothing company Juicy Couture and worked very closely with Juicy's co-founders, Gela Nash and Pam Skaist-Levy. She worked on women's graphic logos and designs for the company for several years. When Juicy launched a men's line, she and John Taylor played a big part in the design direction. Hundreds of logos and designs were created by the pair over five years.

In 2006, Patty and John, together with designer Ted McCann, created the limited-edition 'Peavey Liberator J-84' bass.[1][2]

Patty has also worked with Duran Duran since 2003 designing logos, t-shirts, tour programmes, calendars, DVD packaging, stage clothes, CD packaging and a vinyl album.

She recently launched her own "Punk Masters" line of t-shirts and other merchandise.[3]
