Andrew Gardiner is the creative director and owner of Gardiner Design Associates, a multidisciplinary agency setup in 1985. We encourage good design across all organisations and sectors. We design part or all aspects of your business and environment specialising in contract interiors, exhibitions and displays, brand identity, graphics, print, advertising, social media and websites. The practice has designed and managed projects throughout the UK and Europe.
Andrew is a skilled designer and has considerable experience as a project manager. He comes up with ideas, figures out how to make it happen, oversees the production process, provides guidance and maintains communication within the team and with the client. He campaigns the benefits of good design without unnecessary decoration across all platforms. His awareness of the bigger picture, acute sense of proportion and eye for detail, brings confidence and reassurance to the creative process and implementation.
We collaborate with other skilled thinkers and doers: architects, 3D visualisers and VR developers, illustrators, copywriters, photographers, specialist contractors, web developers and printers, who understand our appreciation of things done properly. Every project is managed through to completion to ensure you get the best results from your investment and support your business model and brand.
Selecting and appointing a design partner is one of the most important elements of any 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.
Born in Islington, north London, Andrew comes from a creative background surrounded by mid-century modern design. He studied photography before joining T&G Display Studios in London.
