Getting to know Andrea...

What’s your favourite film?
Back to the future is the ultimate mix of good cinematography, soundtrack and 80s vibes that we all need for the best night in.
What’s your favourite book?
The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde is definitely my favourite book of all time. I believe everyone would pay a price to allow them to have more time in their hands & this book lets you discover what Dorian's reasons are to trap his damned soul in a canvas. What reasons would you have to trap your soul?
What telly are you addicted to?
I've been recently catching up on MadMan to get stuck on a 50s/60s vibes story about the Men working at Madison Avenue at an Ad agency. I've always dreamed of working in advertisement, especially in that time when every big brand started investing in advertising campaigns and 'MadMen' gives the perfect idea of what it looked like working in our industry back then.
Where’s the best place you’ve travelled to?
I've been to Brazil in 2013 and so far that's the best place I've seen, it's just a stunning cocktail of colours, music and happiness definitely a place to visit again in the future.
What would be your specialist subject on Mastermind?
Definitely Sneakers, I can't wake up in the morning without checking the latest releases to be always up to date without missing any of my favourite models.
What’s your favourite sport to watch or play?
Basketball has been the most efficient stress-release sport i've been practicing and definitely more engaging then other sports to watch.
What question do you get asked most often in your job?
Dre - when is this going to be done by?
What’s the best thing about Manchester?
Mancunians are the best thing about Manchester, closely followed by the number of beer gardens & enjoying barbecues in the sun.
Sunday brunch or Sunday roast?
A nice light brunch is what we all need on a Sunday afternoon.
Which of HGA's values means the most to you?
'Together we rock' On my own, I am just another graphic designer in the endless pool of design. Without the team I share my days with, I am nothing but another pencil waver with some cool ideas that don't always come to life. I am always inspired and always challenged by working with my team - it makes me a better designer and a better person and I will always be proud of that.
