Over 15 years digital experience working across UI design, new product development, app design, digital content management, branding and data visualisation within the Fashion and media industries.
I worked at WGSN.com as their in-house Design Manager & Senior UI Designer for over 10 years. For 7 years, I ran WGSN's busy Art Department, managing a team of 8 Digital Designers. Following that, I became WGSN's Senior UI Designer, with my focus being directed at new and existing product development.
Before my tenure at WGSN, I worked freelance for a couple of years. Since leaving WGSN, I've returned back to freelancing. Having worked both in-house and on a project-by-project basis, I've developed a good understanding of the unique set of requirements that each new project demands, and prove to quickly adapt to any new situation.
Andrew is a highly talented designer. From the time that I have worked with him, he has displayed excellent skills across mobile, data analytics, infographics and more and led the creative design direction of all the current WGSN flagship products. He can easily digest any brief given to him and turn that into reality with efficiency and style. He is known for pushing the boundaries to ensure that design are not only of the highest quality but also leading design trends. I would not hesitate in recommending him.
Watermelon have partnered with Andrew to deliver a major re-brand, involving new logos, templates, brand guidelines and a new website. Andrews commitment and attention to detail has been vital for understanding our complicated propositions and ensuring we are consistent across all our marketing activities. We continue to work with Andrew on all our latest propositions and also branding work as we evolve, and whenever we are stuck with how to bring things to life Andrew always has the answer.
Andrew is up there with the best visual designers I've worked with. More than capable of producing brilliant designs for everything he encounters from the briefest and most garbled briefs. His calm, patient and methodical approach to design work are rare qualities in a designer and they make working with him practically effortless.
Andrew is not only a great organiser and team leader but has a fantastic eye for design. He is a consummate professional and is well liked and respected by both his direct reports and management. I could not have asked for better support in the 5 years we worked together and would not hesitate to recommend him as an employee or colleague.
WGSN INstock was named a 'Silver Winner' in Best New Product of the Year (Enterprise) in Best in Biz Awards 2014, the only independent business awards program judged by members of the press and industry analysts.
