Andy Gordon

Senior Innovation Designer

My role is to help our clients identify, explore and creatively respond to meaningful opportunities for Innovation. I help internal and external teams navigate uncertainty, unearth meaningful problems to solve, and experiment with solutions and strategies to create value for people, organisations, and our planet.

Before joining Torchbox, I worked in various design, innovation, and transformation roles both in non-profit and private sectors, including Macmillan Cancer Research, Forum for the Future, and HP.

I'm passionate about Futures Thinking & Speculative Design and leveraging my experience to help organisations look further ahead and ensure they're resilient to change by identifying the right opportunities to leverage Innovation for good. I lead projects with a design-led, systemic and inclusive approach to Innovation - one where all stakeholders thrive by design.

In my downtime, you can find me exploring with my wife and daughter; surfing, swimming, climbing, walking, and up-skilling in sustainability/regeneration. I love trying something completely new!

I've flown a glider solo, backpacked around SE Asia, I'm a fellow of the RSA, and my work has won a few Design awards along the way including a CES Innovation Honore, Plus x Award, and Gold and Silver at the CLIO Awards.
