DR JUDITH O'CALLAGHAN (ABOVE) TALKS ABOUT GORDON ANDREWS, DESIGNER OF AUSTRALIA'S DECIMAL CURRENCY
Gordon Andrews was born 100 years ago in Sydney's Ashfield.
He was most famous for designing Australia's first decimal currency in the 1960s but he also went on to be a prolific designer after working in advertising.
Long before being invited by the Reserve Bank to submit a design for the new bank notes he had designed furniture, jewellery, fabrics plus stationary, packaging and even saucepans for David Jones.
In this podcast Dr Judith O'Callagahan, Director of Postgraduate Research at UNSW Built Envrionment is interviewed by Richard Glover on yesterday's ABC's Drive program about Andrews' fascinating life.
