This is your life…

As mentioned in our previous post, it’s all change at Air this summer. We said a sad goodbye to our Design Director and co-founder Ian Wright on Friday. Never one to pass up the opportunity for a party though, we made sure he got a proper Air send off…

Arriving under the pretense of a quiet drink in the studio, Ian was quickly whisked to the Magic Circle venue in Euston, where an assortment of family, friends and ex-colleagues were assembled ready to surprise him. Once a drink was firmly in hand, we went up to the theatre for some magic (well, that’s what Ian thought). In fact, we had prepared a ‘This Is Your Life’ style presentation, with input from childhood and college friends, family and colleagues (all complimented by some wonderful old photos – thanks Glenda!). Embarrassment over, we presented him with his own personal This Is Your Life red hardback book before sitting back to watch some magic and eat and drink the night away.

Thank you to everybody who came, the Wright family, the Magic Circle and those at Air for their efforts in the run up to the party. You all made it a great night. Now it just leaves us to say good luck to Ian; we wish you all the best for your retirement, it’s been a pleasure working with you and you’ll be greatly missed!
