  • SOCIAL SERIES: Glovebox Real Dealer Story

Toddlawson.com is a collection of  ART I’ve created, WORDS I’ve written and PROJECTS that I’ve worked on since 2001(CV). I have worked at all levels of the creative process in a variety of fields. I have created, lead and influenced the execution of globally award-winning creative solutions in roles ranging from Chief Creative Officer, Vp Creative Strategy, Creative Director, Associate Creative Director, Art Director, Designer, Writer, production artist, animator, 3D designer, direct client contact and managing director. In that time I have worked in marketing / advertising, design, illustration, CGI, publishing and software product design industries (SaaS).

Todd Lawson

Currently I work at Vicimus as VP, Creative Strategy operating as the gatekeeper for the company’s creative pulse on design direction, UI and UX, product development, marketing and creative services and idea mining. Internally working on overall department process & operations, and mentoring & guiding a team of very dedicated creators. Previous to this position I worked at Dashboard (acquired) as their CCO, before that at Grey Canada as the agency’s Digital User Experience Lead and Associate Creative Director – where I helped the company become one of the most respected and awarded Canadian Advertising agencies including the 2013 Agency of the Year by the Advertising & Design Club of Canada. And then before Grey back at Dashboard as a Senior Art Director and other firms earlier on.

My work has garnered international recognition within marketing communications and the consumer business industries. In 2014 & 2015 being ranked as one of the top Art Directors in the country by Strategy Magazine’s Creative Report Card (9th and 15th respectively) including multiple Cannes Lions, Cassies, ADCCs, LIAs, Marketing, Communication Arts and other awards and accolades. I live for over-thinking, over-refining, over-pushing and creating a Full-Stack Creative Culture where expectations are to find a solution even if you have to teach yourself a tool or skill to do it.

In 2017 I relaunched my branding company as a clothing company: Miner Thought which provides original shirts, hoodies, hats, and more for women, men and kids. It continues to be a passion project on the side.
