Andrew’s clients are as diverse as the projects he is tasked with. He has worked with many brands throughout the UK and the gulf region, from startups to blue chips. Whether his clients are looking to create or refresh their brand identity, or launch a new product or service, Andrew’s creative skills and savvy are an unparalleled match when looking for the optimal creative partner.

After working in various London agencies for 10 years with brands such as CBI Conference, Mazda and Land Rover, Andrew was given the opportunity to work as the Head of Design for a Bahrain-based agency in 2003, where he was tasked to lead the brand activation for Bahrain International Circuit. The project included the creation of all the event marketing collateral for the inaugural Bahrain Grand Prix in 2004—the first-ever Grand Prix in the Middle East.

Following the success of these two projects, Andrew took on the role General Manager and Creative Director for a Bahrain-based boutique agency from 2004 to 2007. Under his dedicated leadership, the agency grew from a small ad hoc design agency to developing comprehensive mixed-media communications campaigns. It also grew its position in the local market as a leading independent agency in Bahrain. Its main clients included, Etisalcom, Bahrain Economic Development Board, Gulf Hotel, Bahrain Int. Airport, DTZ properties, Jaguar, Suzuki and Peugeot Bahrain.

After five years in Bahrain, a career move took Andrew to Dubai as Head of Design and Marketing for a UK-based global full-service communications agency. Overseeing the company’s three regional offices, his range of projects covered the UAE, Oman, Bahrain and Saudi Arabia. Andrew oversaw a highly experienced creative team, working closely withclients to develop and implement every stage of their marketing plans. From initial strategyto branding and positioning, design and production of sales and marketing collateral.

Andrew also managed a complex workflow between the two studios in London and Dubai, serving clients such as Azizi Investments, Microsoft, DTZ properties, MEED Magazine and Conferences, Jotun Paints, Indigo Properties, Leisurecorp and International Cricket Councel (ICC) and Mohammed Bin Zayed City.

In 2009, Andrew ventured into self-employment, becoming one of the first full-time freelancers in the UAE, where he developed a solid base of regular clients, including YAS Marina Circuit, Formula 1, Nokia Networks, Dubai Financial Markets and DTZ.

In 2012, as the business matured the freelance design work rolled into Andon, a full-service design agency. Over the next several years, it quickly became one of the leading independent boutique creative agencies within the UAE, working with some of the UAE’s major companies, including Emirates SkyCargo, Emirates Airlines and Emirates Post.  In 2020, Andrew successfully sold the business.

In 2019, his entrepreneurial spirit soared to new heights as co-founder of Shoenvious.com. The e-commerce platform enables women to personally design their shoes from toe to heel, with hundreds of colours and materials to choose from. Designed with state-of-the-artonline 3D technology, each pair is then handmade-to-order and shipped worldwide.
