Todd Watts is open to possibility. When he’s confronted with a problem, his natural inclination is to find a creative solution. He doesn’t think just outside the box, he explores its external radius with the optimism of a prospector searching for gold. The only difference between Todd and the prospector is that when he finds gold he uses it to create visual magic for you and your business.
As an art director and graphic designer, Todd is a visual storyteller and communicator. He believes good design should be accessible and understood by whoever comes across it and works hard to make branded campaigns that speak volumes without actually saying anything at all. Todd’s curiosity with the world combined with his empathetic approach to design results in branded outcomes that are quick to digest while leaving a lasting impression.
Todd’s been fine-tuning his craft since childhood. In primary school his Grade 5 teacher commissioned Todd to paint a portrait of Australian cricketing legend Don Bradman. When he wasn’t in the classroom, Todd would shadow his signwriting father in the studio, learning how to create something from nothing with a brushstroke. A little older, Todd started taking on small jobs, creating gig posters for his friends’ bands, which eventually led to studying graphic design and then working for top tier creative and advertising agencies including Snask and M&C Saatchi.
Now as a freelancer, Todd works with various scaled-clients to bring to life projects spanning art direction, graphic design, storyboarding, stop motion, animation and paper-craft. He loves dissecting and reassembling the secret language of design to find fresh, fun and bold solutions across TV, print media, branding and everything in-between. Todd’s clients include Netflix, Disney and Lexus to name a few.
A watt is a unit of power and with multiple watts to his name, Todd Watts will work powerfully to make eye-widening magic for your creative project.
