Andy Cooke

Design & direction across brand identity, screen and print


I build, invent and re-invent brands through strategy, design, words and ideas — from start-ups and scale-ups, through to legacy brands and those-about-to-IPO — with campaigns, identities, websites and experiences.

Through a gentle mix of optimism, theoretics, beauty, and radical invention in a sea of homogeneity, I work alongside groups of people with broad skillsets to reach a collective, ambitious and inspiring vision.

My work has been awarded by the Andys, the Clio Awards, Creative Circle, the Art Director’s Club, The One Show, Cannes and D&AD.


The professional path I’ve travelled to this point in time has been anything but conventional — I didn’t take the traditional design agency route. Instead, I opted to seek new challenges along the way that have gone on to inform an outlook that’s rich, diverse and different.
