HunterGatherer is a full-service design studio, focusing on telling its clients’ stories through conceptually inventive techniques. The studio was founded in 2000 by Todd St. John and specializes in narrative messaging through illustration and animation, as well as branding and experience design. We are based in Brooklyn, New York and are outfitted with both a photo studio and a fabrication/model shop.
HunterGatherer’s work has been widely published and exhibited. The studio has won awards from almost every major design organization, and HunterGatherer was included 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 ‘Design for Video and Film’ in the Yale School of Art’s graduate program, and exhibits and creates non-commercial work, products and furniture under his own name.
