The One Academy, one of the world’s leading art and design college, is proud to announce a victorious achievement and would like to congratulate 3D Animation Director Andrew Gordon on being conferred The BrandLaureate Brand Personality Award by The Asia Pacific Brands Foundation due to his remarkable contributions to the world of animation.

Besides being The One Academy’s 3D Animation Director, Gordon is better known for his life-long work for Pixar as a professional animator. Since joining Pixar in 1997, he has been an animator on numerous feature films, including A Bug's Life, Monsters, Inc., Finding Nemo, The Incredibles, Ratatouille, and Toy Story 3.

Gordon has more than 20 years of experience in the animation industry. He studied animation in Vancouver and New York. Prior to joining Pixar, he was part of the Looney Tunes division of Warner Brothers. Due to his incredible talent, he has been awarded “Outstanding Character Animation in an Animated Motion Picture” by the Visual Effects Society for Finding Nemo.

On top of his immense contributions to film, Gordon has been teaching animation in California since 2000, and has lectured and conducted animation Masterclasses around the world including Malaysia, Singapore, China, Italy, Australia and Spain. As The One Academy’s 3D Animation Director, he always endeavors to impart updated industrious knowledge to students and lecturers, and to implement improvements to The One Academy’s educational syllabus.

The Asia Pacific Brands Foundation truly believes that Andrew Gordon is indeed an exceptionally gifted individual who truly deserves The BrandLaureate Award for his outstanding contributions to the animation industry.

Besides Gordon, the Foundation also honored the award to a few other international personalities and icons, including Cyndi Lauper (American singer, actress and activist), Park Inbee (professional golfer and Olympic Gold Medalist) and Seiji Ozawa (renowned Japanese conductor). The BrandLaureate Brand Personality Awards is initiated to honor these successful individuals whose contributions have helped the nation to grow, enhance the well-being of society and make our lives more comfortable.

To the Asia Pacific Brands Foundation, brands are not only limited to just products and services, but also individuals who have contributed greatly to the growth of a business, brand or an industry. The roles of these individuals and their contributions to society, be it direct or indirect, are considered invaluable, and so is Andrew Gordon’s gift to many of his followers.

The ‘Mural Painting with AkzoNobel, Low Yat Group and Dulux’ is not the only The One Academy’s mural painting project as the creative art college has been, of late, engaged with other organisations to achieve its mission. Its most recent project is a mural painting project held at Jalan Kenari, Puchong in September this year in collaboration with Majlis Perbandaran Subang Jaya (MPSJ).
