My name is Andrew Wilson and I am a multi disciplinary designer and photographer based in Leeds, West Yorkshire. I studied a BA in Product Design at Leeds Beckett University but over the years have now found myself designing graphics, websites and more.
I’m a lover for all things creative but I often find myself short of time to pursue all of the things I enjoy. In addition to my design work, I am heavily invested in music. I’ve produced a track under the name Moorland which has accumulated around 17,000 listens on soundcloud. I also run a promotion label called ‘www.themonitoruk.com’ which is a website and soundcloud page with over 900 followers. Through its creation I have built links and contacts from producers to record labels and radio stations. I’ve even had the honour of scouting out an underground Leeds producer and getting them signed for 2 EP releases. In addition, I run guest mixes on the soundcloud page which are made by underground producers from around the world.
When I’m not busy with music or design you can guarantee my camera won’t be far from my hand. I’m a frequent poster of photography from across Yorkshire on instagram, flickr and VCSOCam.
In the past I have managed many different websites and projects. The most notable was a website called ‘www.ukbasketballcourts.com’ which is an interactive map of basketball courts in the UK. The website was designed to coincide with a website called ‘www.backbritishbasketball.com’ which was produced to ensure the GB team was automatically qualified to be a part of the 2012 London Olympics. The website received a huge response and helped to promote grass roots basketball. It’s now in much need of an update having been the same design since 2010!
