Design is common. Good design is not. Why? Because it’s hard. It takes work. It demands piles of crumpled trace paper, blurry vision, and midnight “aha!” moments. Examining everything from angles that geometry hasn’t invented yet. Challenging preconceptions. Ripping through lots of bad ideas and relentlessly improving the good ones.
THIS IS THE PROCESS YOU DESERVE WHEN YOU HIRE A GOOD DESIGNER. DEMAND NOTHING LESS.
Hi. My name is Andrew. Or Andy. The former if you like the typographic symmetry with my last name. I'm a freelance designer based in Boulder, Colorado. I can usually be found hiking with my Boston terrier, hanging at one of the coffee shops on east Pearl, spinning vinyl and working at my drawing table, or on the chairlift at Eldora.
The backstory: BFA in Applied Visual Arts from Oregon State University leading to 19 years of design experience split between 3 firms in Portland, OR and Boulder, CO., giving me a wide exposure to project types, industries, and interesting coworker behavior. Now I'm rolling solo and always on the lookout for visionary clients who are interested in working together to make great things happen.
