Andy Higgs, Creative Director & Founder
I run a small and creative firm based in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter.
I worked on my first commission when I was 16 years old; five years later I turned my part-time interest into a full-time occupation and started the company.
A finalist for Audi Young Designer of the Year in 2003, I graduated from Loughborough University with a BA Hons. in Industrial Design & Technology in 2006.
In the same year, I wrote a dissertation on Web Accessibility in UK Small Businesses; which was one of the first pieces of academic writing on the subject.
I have co-founded a number of other enterprises, including BeTheInvestor, a pitch-based business competition for young entrepreneurs, and Crisis Cover, a business protection web application.
A technology and motorsport fanatic, I also suffer wanderlust, which has taken me to Taiwan, Tibet, Malaysia, Nepal, Canada, Australia and Japan, and a few other places too.
