Andy Adamson

Founder at Web

Born in the north west of England Andy studied illustration then started his career undertaking freelance projects for; British Coal, Tennents, British Aerospace and UK Atomic Energy Authority.

In 1995 he founded Web, an internet company at the beginning of the internet revolution. Over the past twenty two years, Andy has changed how consumers physically experience brands online, creating websites that focus on function and engagement. In 2000 he pioneered innovation in website design, bringing technology such as sending bulk branded emails with live analysis for Visit Britain and customer logins to manage their data for theatres.

A passionate advocate for the creative use of technology, Andy is inspired by the pursuit of original thinking for online solutions to problems such as; centralised property databases, share a lift scheme and connecting the first theatre in Britain with integrated booking to Facebook. In 2004 he was recognised in the entrepreneur of the year awards. 

Andy’s work is focused on human centred design and has created immersive experiences for Manchester International Festival, Visit Scotland, Fettes College and The Lowry.

More recently his ideas have been centred around developing video commerce technology that allows users to make purchases directly from video. His work across a number of sectors allows him to draw insights to form a diverse set of approaches and ideas for solving online challenges.

Outside of his work he played rugby for Edinburgh Academicals, Edinburgh and Combined Districts. Now he challenges himself with a trip up Kilimanjaro and Scottish munros.
