Dr. Taillon’s substantive research interest lies in the areas of advertising, marketing communications, branding, and consumer behavior. His research investigates implied motion, or visual techniques used to facilitate dynamic imagery. He has discovered that brand-related implied motion outperforms non-brand-related implied motion on higher order advertising outcomes in print ads.  

Dr. Taillon loves working with students in the classroom and takes his role as an educator very seriously. Driven by his own experience as a student, Dr. Taillon enjoys the challenge of connecting textbook strategy with real-world application. He is especially interested in teaching Marketing Strategy, Advertising, Retail, Marketing Principles, Brand Management, Consumer Behavior, and IMC.
