Andy Judd

London-based Andy Judd is a graphic designer with over 13 years’ experience in the creative industry. Andy started off his design career working in-house at Live Nation, one of the largest global music and events promoters. Since then, he has worked in different disciplines including working on TV style guides for John Davey Studio, packaging design for large UK high street stores such as Halfords, John Lewis, Debenhams and a range of freelance work, including for his boyhood football team Tottenham Hotspur.

Andy likes to approach his creative work using the process of ‘learn through play’. With this in mind he likes to keep himself creatively busy by putting on creative workshops, including drawing events under his alias leftbutnotright and designing pop vinyl covers with a heavy metal twist.

What do you love about design?

From a young age, I’ve always been inspired by the visual impact film posters can have on their target audience, especially B-movie posters. Classic B-Movie posters such as The Swamp Thing, Mothra, The Blob and Forbidden Planet are some of my favourites. The bold graphics, colours and type have always been a big influence in my personal work.

I love the fact that Graphic Design serves a purpose both for transitory media as well as having a sudden impact as visual communication.

Why do you teach?

I got the bug when I used to plan and deliver live design briefs for students at my previous university. It was a great learning experience for myself and the students. Since then, I have always wanted to share my knowledge and experiences with students so they can learn and hopefully benefit from in the future.

Tell us about your design career outside of Shillington.

I have been working as a designer for over 10 years and more recently worked in packaging and branding delivering ranges for high street stores across the UK.

Also, In my spare time I like to delve into screen printing and design/print at my local screen printers in South London. My personal projects are almost as important as the commercial ones, they let me explore and expand my passion for all things creative.

What or who are you loving right now?

Archie Proudfoot, a sign painter and gold leaf artist based in North London. He learnt his skills of the trade by taking influence from old books and the vast community of hidden sign painters, leading the renaissance of sign painting. All of his signs are created by hand from start to finish, giving each piece of work a genuinely unique and limited feel.

I’m also loving and slightly obsessed with the new TV series ‘Stranger Things’. Everything from the typography, the way its shot, the props, the clothes they wear and the general 80’s influence is mind blowing!!!

If you were a typeface, what would you be?

I would be a Shadowed Sans Serif, taking influence from Vintage American Sign Painting.
