Andrew Gardiner is the creative director and owner of Gardiner Design Associates. The practice was setup in 1985 and is committed to encouraging good design and branding across all organisations and sectors. We can design part or all aspects of your business and environment and specialise in exhibitions, displays and interiors, branding, graphics, print, advertising, social media and websites. The practice has designed and managed projects throughout Europe and UK.
A lateral thinker and highly experienced project manager, Andrew’s belief in the benefits of clean modern design without unnecessary clutter works across all platforms. His awareness of the bigger picture, sense of proportion and eye for detail, shows confidence and reassurance through the creative and implementation process.
We often collaborate with other highly talented thinkers and doers: architects, 3D visualisers, illustrators, copywriters, photographers, contractors, web developers and printers, who understand our appreciation of things done properly. We manage the process through to completion to ensure you get your message across and get the best result from your investment to help grow your business and brand. Selecting and appointing a new design partner is one of the most important elements of your organisation and to be effective relationships with a design agency are best built for the long term. We ensure that the partnership will work for you the client and for us as designers.
