Founded in 1998 by Alex Maclean, Fred Deakin and Nat Hunter, Airside was a London-based cross-platform design agency that covers a wide range of design activities – from (motion) graphic and website design, mobile content, illustration, music videos and commercials. Airside created the Main and Main-on-End titles for the the ‘The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency,’ which were featured on Watch the Titles.
In 2009, to mark its 10 year anniversary, Gestalten published the book “Airside by Airside,” a celebration of Airside’s decade of design.
On November 24, 2011, Airside announced on its website and on Twitter that it will be closing “shop” as of March 2012. “After fourteen years of working together we have grown into different people with different goals and despite all of our best efforts we can’t see a way for Airside to move forward and accommodate all of our individual ambitions. You could put it down to musical differences if you like!”
