Hi, i’m Andy,
I’m a freelance Industrial Designer, currently based in the South Australian city of Adelaide.
As an Industrial Designer, my work focuses on the emotional connection between humans and objects. Through observation of behaviours and interactions, we can provide innovative solutions as useful, meaningful and culturally-relevant products and experiences that positively impact quality of life.
I’ve been fortunate over the past few years to have worked for extremely motivated and entrepreneurial companies to provide innovative solutions to an awesome selection of large nationals and emerging start-up clients alike.
I believe that global exposure is vital to my professional objectives as a designer and, as a keen traveler, have interned in China and made my way through Australia, New Zealand, South-East Asia and Europe.
I’m bike-crazy, and I love nothing more than a day spent at full-speed on the dirt, or more often upside-down in the mud, on my downhill bike.
With experience spanning a variety of industries, and scope-of-works covering the full design process, I can take a sketched idea all the way through development and production to realise your product.
