Andrew created Barocky Chocky about eight years ago as a necessary outlet for his feverish imagination and creativity. He has been in love with mid-century design all his life: the sense of fun and education, the wonderful stylisation and colour. Andrew is also a compulsive observer. He decided to combine these passions to see if others appreciated what he does… and they do! His first product was a handmade book celebrating Sydney’s historic electricity substations. The success of this encouraged him to sing the praises of other subjects that spoke to him, and the ideas and themes continue to flow.
