If you’re interested in growing as a designer, talk with Andy and ask him to be your mentor and coach. His encouragement, humor and emotional intelligence inspire me to become a better designer and a better person who is comfortable to bring out my inner gorilla.
Mentoring from someone who is fluent in design was one of my best decisions. I am able to freely discuss work challenges, shares struggles and triumphs. I’m more excited about design than I have been in years.

Think back to your past; was there someone, perhaps a colleague, friend, or a teacher who influenced you or taught you valuable lessons? Mentoring gives you an experienced person to talk to, and my role as your mentor is as an advisor and supporter, offering you guidance and helping you develop and improve the areas we’ll work on together. Through mentoring, my goal is to become a positive influence on your professional work and I’m committed to helping you succeed.
My mentoring programme
My mentees are all highly intelligent and talented people who are looking for design coaching, career guidance, and support with business issues. We have a series of conversations over a defined period, usually ten hours.
You decide how much structure you need from the sessions. Are you looking for design review sessions or professional development, every week or every two weeks? Or, are you looking for less structure? Would you prefer to call me every few weeks to discuss what’s happening?
