Andrew Gardiner is the creative director and owner of Gardiner Design Associates, a multi-disciplinary agency setup in 1985. We are passionate in encouraging good design across all organisations and sectors. We design part or all aspects of your business and environment specialising in commercial interiors, exhibitions and displays, brand identity, graphics, print, advertising, social media and websites. The practice has designed and managed projects throughout Europe and UK.
A highly talented designer and experienced project manager, Andrew believes in the benefits of modern design without unnecessary decoration across all platforms. Andrew’s awareness of the bigger picture, acute sense of proportion and eye for detail, brings confidence and reassurance to the creative and implementation process.
We often collaborate with other skilled thinkers and doers: architects, 3D visualisers and virtual reality developers, 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 the best result from your investment and support 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.
