1977 National Athletics Stadium

April 17th, 2011

Gordon Andrews was an Australian designer who worked closely with Philip Cox & Partners to develop a complementary program of signage for the National Athletics Stadium in Canberra. Describing this project in his own words he said, “The situation called for clarity, simplicity and boldness.” Entrances were designed with abstract graphics derived from athletic references while bright colours were utilized to relieve the visual weight of the concrete structure.

Andrews is also known for designing Australia’s original decimal currency banknotes that were released in February of 1966.
