Andy Bullock

Entrepreneurship Expert


Profile

Andy's strengths lie in brand creation/architecture, creative communications and design (graphic and product). He is also an exceptional project communicator and visualiser.

With 30 years’ experience in global creative communications, marketing and design, including several years as a senior Art Director with Saatchi and Saatchi in London, there are very few market sectors in which Andy Bullock has not been involved.

With a near-unique skill set, having studied graphic design and photography at art school, he became more heavily involved in the commercial world of marketing, brand creation/development and creative communications for a wide range of enterprises.

Significant clients have included: Sony, British Airways, Bosch, Canon and Barclays Bank.

Being a natural creative and conceptual thinker, Andy approaches every brief with the same open-minded enthusiasm for innovation and original thought. Most recently he has used this extensive experience and knowledge to considerable effect in entrepreneurial ventures across many product areas. He has a particular (although not exclusive) interest in eco/enviro projects, renewable energy, sustainability issues and social enterprises that can deliver a real-world benefit.

Latest projects: Andy is the founder of Urbancyclo, a new Oxford ‘design house’ brand working exclusively on innovative products for today’s urban cyclists, which will be launching with the company’s first product release, the Quicktwist handlebar stem. This is Andy's own unique patent-pending invention and design that reduces the width of a bike by up to 80%.

He is also Design Director of SGmodal, a new designer furniture and lighting brand backed by the substantial resources of an established UK industrial manufacturer.

His considerable strengths lie in brand creation/architecture, creative communications and design (graphic and product). He is also an exceptional project communicator and visualiser, a vital skill asset for today’s entrepreneurs pitching innovative ideas to the wider business community and society at large.

Andy is a passionate believer in the power of inter-disciplinary collaborations afforded by working in such a dynamic and progressively thinking city environment as Oxford.

He continues to maintain a parallel career as an artist/photographer (shortlisted for the Kobal Portrait Award in 2001 at the National Portrait Gallery), a writer and musician.
