Considered to be one of Australia’s leading mid-20th century “multi-disciplinary” designers, Gordon Andrews is best known for designing the first decimal currency bank notes, released in Australia on 14 February 1966. His commissions included one for the Commonwealth Department of Trade to design an exhibition depicting Australia, its people and products for the 41st Comptoir Suisse in Lausanne, Switzerland in 1960. Australia was a guest nation at this trade fair which was held in the grounds of the Palais de Beaulieu. Ref: DAAO; MAAS.
