Andrew Watson is an Industrial Designer and Owner of Andrew Watson Design in Vancouver.
Andrew Watson grew up in Far North Queensland, Australia. Curious and artistic as a child, his parents supported his creative passions and enrolled him in as many creative classes as they could. As a teen, Andrew developed a desire to further his hobbies and started to explore his passion for creativity.
Andrew completed both a Bachelor's and Master’s degree in Industrial Design at Griffith University, Queensland College of Art (QCA). His studies focused on sustainable and responsible design practices. Motivated by a strong desire to push creative design boundaries, he received numerous awards and recognitions for having the highest academic achievements in his graduating class of 150 students.
Since completing the design program at QCA, Andrew Watson returned as a sessional instructor, teaching in the design program. Andrew has an extensive portfolio of three dimensional design related projects including industrial design, branded environment/exhibition design, environmental graphic design, print based graphic design and 3D visualization.
Having come from a family of small business owners, Andrew trusted his entrepreneurial instincts and in 2006, decided to turn his passion into a business. Since launching his business, Andrew has worked with companies such as Google, Red Bull, Disney, The United Nations, Verizon Wireless, LG, West Jet, Mazda, Fuji Xerox, Ericsson (formally Sony Ericsson), Absolute Vodka, Volkswagen, PGA, X-Prize, Indian Motorcycle, Phillips, A&W, Gap Clothing, Wilson Sporting Goods and many more. He spends a lot of time (maybe too much time) outdoors seeking more inspiration for his next artful designs.
Andrew believes strongly in the advantages of using Eco-friendly materials whenever possible. To reduce any impact on the environment he endeavors to utilize only reclaimed wood or FSC certified wood. He frequently works with bamboo as it is one of the fastest growing and most harvest-able plants on the planet.
Andrew Watson Design has been featured in: BC Business Magazine, BC Small Business Awards (finalist), Connect Sports Magazine, Collaborate Magazine, & Canadian Immigrant Magazine.
