Andy Fackrell - 180 Amsterdam — Amsterdam, The Netherlands
I really enjoyed Semi Permanent more than the others, because I had practised a few times what I was actually going to say. So it felt more relaxed than previous speeches that had scared the crap out of me.
Born in England, raised in Australia and then New Zealand, Andy Fackrell studied graphic design and visual communication at Wellington Polytechnic. Currently Executive Creative Director of 180amsterdam, he previously worked at Wieden+Kennedy in Portland, Oregon. During that time he was largely concerned with the Adidas and Nike accounts and his love affair with sport continues at 180amsterdam, a production house located in both Amsterdam and Los Angeles that works across advertising, digital, design and retail.
