contact ANDY

Andy Carlson is a freelance designer at heart, and a particularly driven individual. Since 2008, he has balanced going to school full-time with work in the field of design. Recently he co-founded the ESC Collective, who spent the summer building 12 geodesic domes for the Summit Series in Utah. He is always seeking the next challenge. This might be why he has attended three colleges and explored almost every available medium. He knows the importance of taking a step back and seeing design from someone else’s perspective. It’s part of the reason complex user experience problems keep him awake at night. Currently he is the Creative Director at Fitwall, a tech-driven fitness start up, looking to disrupt the way people get fit.

Timeshare Gallery

In the summer of 2012 I co-founded a gallery in the Everett Street Lofts with my good friend and fellow artist, Joseph Lawrence Lanker. Since then it has built a reputation of excellence every first thursday in the Pearl. Though I no longer curate the gallery, I had my first solo art show in the summer of 2012.

Stay the Course

The concept for this show was centered around the idea of justifications. Four illustrations were drawn and then screen printed on 24"x36" pieces of recycled paper with adhered mirror paper. The four illustrations were conceived in a system that allowed for me to combine them to make one large screen print on black canvas with an attached glass mirror. The gallery space was also covered in matching free-hand tape and mirror illustrations. During the event I set up a live video loop that projected attendees upon the walls in reverse.
