Gordon Andrews (1914-2001) was one of Australia's most distinguished designers, with a body of work encompassing graphic design, furniture, jewellery, sculpture, interior and exhibition design, painting and photography. He is perhaps best known for his designs for Australia's paper currency, which entered circulation February 14, 1966. When the present-day polymer plastic notes began to replace paper ones in 1992, Andrews served on the advisory panel overseeing their design. Andrews was nominated a Fellow of the Society of Industrial Artists (UK) in 1955 and was the first Australian designer to be elected an Honorary Designer for Industry of the Royal Society of Arts (UK) in 1989.
