HunterGatherer is a design, illustration, and animation studio founded in 2000 by Todd St. John. It has earned international recognition for its spare, but conceptually inventive projects; often combining experimental techniques with a distinctive voice. HunterGatherer has stayed intentionally small and client-focused, working closely with select companies and individuals across a range of disciplines.
HunterGatherer’s work has been widely published and exhibited. The studio has won awards from almost every major design organization, and St. John was included with frequent collaborator Gary Benzel in the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Triennial: Design Now. In 2008, HunterGatherer won a Webby and was nominated for an Emmy for the animated short “Circle Squared”. In 2011, their ‘Prius Goes Plural’ short won a Cannes Gold Lion. In addition to running the studio, St. John has taught as a lecturer in the Yale School of Art’s graduate program, and exhibits non-commercial work under his own name.
