Philosophy on Work
Todd's works address theoretical and pragmatic themes attempting to include experimentation in most of his designs. In technical terms, his designs mix analogue (handmade) with digital techniques.
His designs frequently investigate "Type as Image. The resulting models and finished works explore typography, lettering and type design, illustration and corporate identity.
