The power and possibility of creative self-expression through print in a world of grey corporate goo.

Join us at Launch Co-Working on June 14th for an exciting exploration of the CreativeMornings Global theme of Pattern with Andrew Boardman!

Andrew is a designer, artist, educator and small press publisher. As a designer and art director, his professional mission is to design a web that is more humane, that is crafted ethically, that is available to all visitors regardless of ability, and that is built using open source technologies. He also runs a small, nascent and indie Riso-powered press, creating and publishing his own and other artists’ books. His research interests include everyday typography, Jewish visual culture, and the concept of conscious design. He’s also interested in the strange and strained relationship between design and belief.

Andrew is currently creative director at Mangrove Web, a purpose-driven digital agency and Certified B Corp. Previously, he founded and managed his own design studio, Manoverboard, for 20 years. Manoverboard was the first Certified B Corp in Manitoba and served clients across North America. He taught design at Red River College Polytech and the University of Manitoba’s School of Art. He received a B.A, M.F.A., and a Fulbright.

“I’ve been self-publishing my own and other people’s work since I was 15 years old when a few friends and I started an alternative newspaper at our high school. This has been a recurring theme throughout my life that I only recently “discovered”: I love seeing weird, unorthodox or otherwise unconventional ideas published — especially in print. Over the past 40 years, I’ve made zines, booklets, newsletters, newspapers, boxes, blogs, books, cards, websites, wikis, posters, pamphlets and postcards. Some people call it ephemera, whether digital or analogue. I call it art. Self-publishing is probably the most important evolution of media in my lifetime. Learn why self-publishing, especially through the medium of paper, remains an expression of wild possibility, a form of deep therapeutic healing, and the clearest affirmation of our rights to freedom and expression of equality. If you’ve ever considered publishing your own work, come ride the wave!”
