After attending Brighton College of Art under the incredible tutelage of Raymond Briggs, Andy Carroll started his career illustrating for advertising agencies and children’s book publishers. He moved into broadcast television and became a graphic designer working at BBC TV Centre in London. He specialised in designing title sequences and content gfx for some of the UK’s best-loved comedy, entertainment and children’s shows. He became freelance and during this time he began drawing storyboards for promos and graphic sequences, this led to further work on commercials and soon his storyboarding overtook the TV motion graphics work. He currently works for a broad client base including commercial production companies, advertising agencies and major TV drama producers in the UK and across the Globe. He has recently been a guest lecturer at NFTS and Brunel University.
Andy lives in a rambling Victorian gothic money-pit in leafy Surrey to the west of London, with his wife, son and currently four lurcher dogs. His hobbies include collecting interesting junk and tinkering with two vintage tractors.
