Have you heard? Habitus has a new Guest Feature Editor

As a journalist, Stephen Todd has always preferred to go off-piste, seeking out subjects others routinely pass by. Now, he’s doing just that within the pages of Habitus for your Design Hunter reading pleasure.

Paris-based for twenty years between 1990 and 2010, Stephen Todd developed a significant international profile as a writer and editor of repute. Over the years, he has contributed essays on art, architecture, fashion and design to newspapers including The New York Times, The Guardian, The Independent and Le Monde, and magazines including Wallpaper*, Fantastic Man and the American edition of Vogue. In 1999, he launched Numéro magazine, Paris, which remains an industry reference to this day. In 2005, he inaugurated concept+image, Paris, a boutique branding and communication agency specializing in brand extension programs (exhibitions, catalogues, advertising) for luxury clients including Moët et Chandon, Woolmark, Swarovski, and Kopenhagen Fur. He was the Director of Branding & Communication (Global) for Swarovski International for three years.

Returning to Australia in 2010 he has since divided his time between Central West NSW and the bright lights within the big smoke. Today he is the Design Editor of the Australian Financial Review Magazine and our regular guest Feature Editor of IN HABITUS VERITAS.

Within those 26+ pages, he proposes an intoxicating lineup of exclusive content, provocative engagement with top creatives across the Asia-Pacific region, and an opinionated mix of insightful interviews and incisive texts.

With as much talent as experience there was no hesitation in inviting him onto the jury and to be a part of our inaugural INDE. Awards, or didn’t you know that?

Keep your eyes peeled for Habitus #35, the Eccentric issue, on sale 7 March. It’s the first of a spectacular many to come!
