Volume Studio was founded in 2015 by Chicago-based Industrial Designer Todd Herlitz.
With 25 years of professional design experience, I have designed products in a wide range of categories including Consumer Electronics, Furniture, Housewares, Structural Packaging, and Toys. My vision for Volume was to build a creative consulting studio that draws on my vast experience to provide unique, functional, and beautiful design work to a broad client base.
In addition to design consulting, Volume is an innovation & invention studio bringing our new product ideas to market through licensing.
I love being part of the design community and give back however I can. I’ve been a featured speaker at several design conferences and regularly participate in portfolio reviews, workshops, and sponsored design projects with ID programs around the Midwest.
I am currently working with nonprofits Advanced Design and IDO to mentor design students at the High School, College, and Young Professional levels. The goal is to help create a more diverse and inclusive ID community made up of people from a wide range of backgrounds and with unique points of view.
