Todd and I have worked together for nearly four years. He's been the only Designer I've employed to develop the brand identity and all visual language for my brand, LithaFlora African Botanicals. Todd is an excellent listener and communicator. It is easy to have virtually no language skills in the graphic design universe, explain my needs in thoughts and feelings; senses; and for him to decipher, visualize and then creatively interpret these, to the letter.
He is a professional of note. Exceeding asked for deliverables at all times. Working beyond reasonable timeframes and generously delivering on time. As well, he has a broad based professional knowledge of the FMCG market of packaged goods and the services which support the industry. This synergistic understanding combined with his professional maturity, is highly valuable and rare in a local Designer. As an example, Todd will suggest materials, provide visual references already in the marketplace for comparison and THEN provide a future-forward design solution, matching and usually exceeding a brief.
Many times, I've gone to Todd with a question as to how a packaged solution may or may not deliver on my brand promise or unique selling proposition and his candid, clear, consistent and considered logic has saved both time and money.

I worked with Todd on the launch of T3 magazine, and I always found him to be enthusiastic, full of ideas and a pleasure to work with. As a keen, young designer he was pretty good back then - but having seen his extensive portfolio, I think his latest work is stunning. His use of colour and type is just exceptional. So if you're not using him for your design work, I can only assume you're happy to settle for second best.
