We had the honor to chat with our friend, Marcos Chavez, a principal and creative director of TODA New York. TODA is a multi-disciplinary design studio in Brooklyn whose projects range from designing tea kettles to websites, creating books, chairs and exhibits, as well as packages and spaces. During our time with him, we had the opportunity to hear about his design process, work, and advice for youth.
Marcos has been recognized for excellence by the Art Directors Club, AIGA, and the Chicago Museum of Contemporary Art. His Design has been featured in Critique, Print and Communication Arts, as well as annuals compiled by Graphis, The American Center for Design and Rockport Publishing. Marcos is a part-time faculty member at Parsons The New School for Design and The Art Institute of New York City.
