London based designcompany Airside gives a talk at LYNfabrikken. Multidisciplinary agency, undertaking work in all media from graphics and illustration to digital and interactive, as well as moving image.
Over the last 11 years, Airside has built a solid reputation in the design and advertising world, and is in the unique position of being a truly multidisciplinary agency, undertaking work in all media from graphics and illustration to digital and interactive, as well as moving image.
Airside has a very strong environmental and sustainability ethos – the company was awarded a Green Mark for its internal practices and we are partners in Three Trees Don’t Make A Forest, an organisation devoted to promoting sustainability in the design community.
Airside likes to tell stories, and in order to do this have created a lot of work that is very illustrative. Airside understand the need to connect with people emotionally and have fun finding ways to do this.
