Mike and Katie make up the design duo, better known to the world as TADO. Based in Sheffield, UK, this pint-sized creative powerhouse has produced an endless list of darkly adorable characters, artwork and projects that have terrorized and delighted individuals and clients worldwide for over a decade. Started in 2002 when the pair began to work together at university, TADO quickly became an established name through their unique style, humour, illustrations, animations, and toy designs. Everything they do is produced in total collaboration – whether it be taking turns in drawing, painting, drilling, glueing, scribbling or clicking.
When Mike and Katie aren’t creating artwork, the pair can usually be found out roaming the Peak District hills on their bikes, dangling from rocks on a climbing rope or carrying on their noble search for the best ice cream in the land.
