Andrew Stevenson lectures in web design, graphic design and design for multimedia. He moved, initially, into book design and publishing after graduating from Falmouth School of Art in 1993. He worked mainly with Dorling Kindersley Books in London and then, latterly, Swanston Publishing in Derby, before becoming a freelancer. During his time working freelance, he was senior designer on illustrated historical and cartographic-based titles aimed at both the UK and American markets, published by Macmillan, Penguin-Viking and Facts on File amongst others. 

Andrew gradually moved from print-based design to work in multimedia design and then web and online multimedia design. He moved to Riley Advertising - a national advertising agency - and Riley Internet Design in 1998, and helped to create early web presences for companies and brands including Bacardi and JD Wetherspoons, as well as a number of UK HE institutions. He later moved to help project manage the Coventry University team that created the University’s first integrated multimedia corporate web presence. 

Andrew’s research interests include Psychogeography and developing new media methods to portray human emotions via multimedia mapping. He has worked alongside Worcester City Council’s Landscape Architects to develop a multimedia ‘sensory map’ as a new method of assisting public consultation on new developments. This formed part of the Council’s winning bid for the national 2010 MJ Achievement Award for “Sustainable Infrastructure Achievement of the Year”. He continues his interests in maps encapsulating stories (see his online series Maps That Tell Tales), in helping to develop sustainable design methods for graphic designers, and in website accessibility for blind and visually impaired users. When not working for the University, Andrew continues to pursue freelance projects as a designer.
