Faculty, Art Fundamentals


Contact Info: Ext. 8509

A graduate of the Graphic Design program at Sheridan College, Todd Barsanti is an award-winning designer with 20 years of industry experience. Todd started his career as a designer working with a variety of prominent design studios in the Toronto area, including Reactor Art + Design, Ove Communications, Spencer Francey Peters, and Hard Drive Design. In 1998, Todd opened his studio, Elemeno Inc., and continues to work on contracts in this capacity. An abbreviated client list for Elemeno Inc. includes Delta Airlines and Air Transat in the airline industry. It also includes Chive Inc., a vase wholesaler with global distributions, Smythe Les Vestes, an internationally recognized fashion house, and not-for-profits like Colleges Ontario and the Toronto chapter of Amnesty International, for whom Todd has been donating his design services since 2000.

From 2002 to 2012, Todd taught at Sheridan College in the York/Sheridan Bachelor of Design program on a contract basis and took on classes at York University in the same program from 2006 to 2012. He also taught at Centennial College, in their Graphic Design + Media program, in 2011.

In 2009, recognizing a lack of understanding of sustainability issues within both the graphic design industry and academia, Todd undertook a Master’s degree in Environmental Studies at York University. Graduating in 2011, he also received a diploma in Environmental & Sustainability Education. Todd’s area of concentration was entitled Integrating Sustainability Into Design Education Through Collaborative Learning Processes.

In July 2013, Todd was invited to Chicago, IL, for a training session with Former US Vice-President Al Gore as part of the Climate Reality Corps and continued to dedicate his time to spreading the reality of our climate crisis through public speaking engagements.
