All change please!

It’s all going on at Air this month: we’ve had a studio move around, our Design Director is retiring, and his replacement is settling in waiting to take the reins. There’ll be no lazy summers here, thank you very much!

So firstly, to the new. Seán O’Mara has recently joined as our new Design Director. With a varied and illustrious career, we’re confident that Seán is the man to steer the creative direction of our numerous and diverse projects (pat yourself on the back HR!). He’s also a bit of an adventurer… Having climbed Mount Kilimanjaro last year, this summer he will be tackling Mount Elbrus in Russia, the second of the Seven Summits mountaineering challenge! If ever there was an excuse for a bit of graphic design, Seán will be marking his arrival at the peak with this beauty:

I’m sure you will all be meeting him in the upcoming months as he settles in and takes on more projects. Welcome Seán and we hope you enjoy your time at Air!

So who indeed is Seán replacing? Well, it’s with great sadness that we will soon be saying goodbye to our Design Director Ian Wright. After founding Air with Alan Robertson, Managing Director, back in 1998, Ian is now retiring to spend more time with his family and enjoy the finer things in life. He has been an indispensible member of the team over the last thirteen years, overseeing projects all over the world for law firms, transport operators, property developers, corporate organisations and a whole host more. You’ll be greatly missed Ian and we wish you all the best for your retirement!
