Andrew Frastaci - Illustrator/Graphic Designer at SPF:a | SPF:architects

Andrew graduated UCLA in 2021 with a degree in Architectural Studies and Art History, and after a year and a half working in construction management, joined the SPF:a team in early 2022. His time spent in the arts and in construction gave him an interesting blend of experience in the theoretical and the practical, helpful to both the early and late stages of a project.

While he's not in the office, Andrew can be found watching Dodgers baseball, Formula One, fiddling around with his car, or at kendo practice. He has been a registered Volunteer Gallery Interpreter at the Petersen Automotive Museum since 2018, and also loves going to the Natural History Museum.

Andrew considers the most influential periods of his life to be every minute he has spent doodling over the years, as well as his time as a staff member of Nikkei Student Union at UCLA.
