About Andrew Herzog
Since graduating from Savannah College of Art and Design’s graphic design course in 2013, New York-based artist and designer Andrew Herzog has had an impressively wide-ranging career, showcasing a truly multidisciplinary way of working in a variety of creative roles.

After stints at both R/GA and Sagmeister & Walsh, Andrew joined the Google Five programme in 2015 – later going on to lead projects at Google Creative Lab often dealing with AI and accessibility, like this drawing game built with machine learning.

A year later, Andrew co-founded design studio HAWRAF alongside fellow Creative Lab colleagues Carly Ayres, Pedro Sanches and Nicky Tesla. Known for creating honest and interesting interactive client work and self-initiated projects, the team decided to close doors in 2019 – but not before sharing their studio documents and learnings in a public Google Drive folder.

Today, Andrew is a partner and director at creative studio, School, set up as a “vehicle for continuous learning” and experimentation – two things the studio sees as integral to the creative process. Working across a wide range of mediums, the studio’s output has so far included everything from websites, brand identities, books and videos, to installations, bots, illustrations, apps, advertisements and tools.

As an artist, Andrew’s work has also been exhibited in museums, galleries and city streets. His latest book, A Report: Circle Or Curve? is the first in a series that documents Andrew’s 2018 public art installations in which he created a “walking mural” by painting a metre-wide, one kilometre diameter circle around the National Museum of Art in Bucharest, Romania.

On top of all of this, Andrew has also taught at the School of Visual Arts in New York, so will be ready and prepared to answer all of your questions! Join us on 21st April, when we’ll be chatting to Andrew about building a portfolio that best represents you, the power of self-initiated work, how to attract more of the work you want to do, and more.
