Design for Principled Organizations
We have designed websites for dozens of businesses and organizations over the past ten years, including Vice Presidents Al Gores sustainable investment firm, MIT, the United Nations, Johnson & Johnson, and retailer EQ3.
We love crafting new ideas and experiences from the ground up and rethinking what isnt working. We design websites big and small. We also create corporate identities and, as time warrants, annual reports and print materials. We align ourselves with those who believe collaboration, empathy, and action combined with deliberate design can change the world.
Manoverboard, now in its second decade, is run by Andrew Boardman, designer of the first Barneys New York ecommerce website. We started in New York. We now call Winnipeg home and work with clients everywhere.
In June 2013, Manoverboard became a Certified B Corporation. By becoming the first Certified B Corp in the Province of Manitoba, we align our own internal values with an organization that has brought together over 800 like-minded companies to create a more responsible vision for our planet and its inhabitants.
Andrew Boardman is the founder, lead designer and driving force behind Manoverboard. Trained as a painter, he fell in love with the power of design after working for the Rockefeller Foundation and for Oven Digital in New York. He currently serves as vice president on the board of the Manitoba chapter of the Graphic Designers of Canada and works in the community in numerous capacities. Andrew runs, reads, and writes but not always in that order.
Andrew received a BA magna cum laude in Art and English from Brown University, Phi Beta Kappa. He holds an MFA from the State University of New York and received a Fulbright Fellowship to study cultural history in Poland. He also received a NYFA Fellowship.
