About Andrew Gardiner

Andrew Gardiner is a skilled designer and has considerable experience as a project manager. His approach to design is that simple forms work the best. 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 admires honest objects and spaces that have been designed for purpose and devotes himself to campaigning stylish aesthetics and functionality. Andrew’s awareness of the bigger picture, acute sense of proportion and eye for detail bring confidence and reassurance to the creative process and implementation.

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. After a couple of years he joined Johnson Matthey and for six years designed and project managed their exhibitions and events worldwide. Andrew was an account director with Gardiner & Torne and became a Member of the Chartered Society of Designers (MCSD) in 1995.
