Andrew is a Senior Lecturer in Contextual and Theoretical Studies (CTS) at London College of Communication.

With over ten years teaching experience in Higher Education Andrew’s focus has been on developing inclusive curricula that addresses decolonisation and intersectionality through active-learning and writing as practice methods.

His career as a graphic designer began at CDT Design in the mid 1990s, on projects for Benenden School, Design Council, The Earth Centre, Royal National Theatre, Our Price Music, South Bank Centre, Volkswagen UK.

At Lloyd Northover clients included BNFL, UBS, The Millennium Commission and SITA – an aerospace information technology specialist. As a founding partner in Unleaded Design with Henrik Bodilsen, Andrew worked for art galleries, local councils and publishers and for many years with the Royal Society of Arts on the annual Student Design Awards.

As a graphic designer he is concerned with the visual organisation and presentation of information using a systematic methodology informed by the teachings of Armin Hofmann, Emil Ruder and Wolfgang Weingart (Basel) and Geoff White (Ravensbourne). Dan Friedman’s Radical Modernism manifesto underpins Andrew’s design ideology.
