Sarah-Jayne Todd is the founder and Creative Director of SJT Studio, an independent London-based creative studio founded in 2020.
Born in the North East of England, SJ moved to London to study Design at University of The Arts, where she became familiar with a diverse range of perspectives and approaches to image making. After rising through the ranks at numerous creative agencies over the past decade, SJ demonstrates a unique and comprehensive expertise in the fields of content creation, strategy, consultancy, advertising, editorial, printed design and web design.
SJ has built an impressive roster of international clients including Gucci, Givenchy and Alexander McQueen. Working across multiple disciplines, she recently began a unique and comprehensive visual collaboration with Musician Oliver Sim. The multi-faceted partnership culminated in collaboration with Yann Gonzalez on a three part queer horror movie which premiered at Cannes Film Festival.
In 2019, SJ launched Family Portrait Magazine, a biannual printed publication devoted to family and relationships. Influential and progressive, the magazine features as a series of visual essays revealing intimate and personal insights from its contributors. Conceived and designed by SJ, the magazine’s aesthetic is understated but expressive, allowing the imagery to take centre stage. The first issue sold out, receiving praise for it’s much-needed optimistic perspective and profusion of creative freedom.
SJ continues to collaborate with emerging and established photographers, directors and stylists including Nick Knight, Elaine Constantine, Brianna Capozzi, Paul Kookier, Heji Shin, Hanna Moon, Jack Day, Laura Jane Coulson, Casper Sejersen, Sam Rock, Esther Theaker, Samuel Bradley, Thomas Lohr, Robin Galiegue, Yann Gonzalez, Mel Ottenberg, Panos Yiapanis and Laetitia Gimenez Adam.
