Gordon Andrews is well known in Australian design circles for his immense body of work. He came to public attention in 1966 when he was commissioned to redesign the currency. But had been active in interior, furniture and graphic design before that.
Andrews is the subject of an exhibition, Celebrating Australia: identity by design, which has been on show in New York at the Australian Consulate-General and is now back at the Mosman Art Gallery [http://www.mosman.nsw.gov.au/recreation/artgallery.html]. The exhibition was organized by the Powerhouse Museum which owns an extensive collection of Andrew's own archives [http://www.phm.gov.nsw.au]
