I'm a graphic designer and writer in Northern Ireland. Welcome to my blog.


I’m a graphic designer and writer who specialises in brand identity design.

David Airey

Self-employed since 2005, I work from my studio in Northern Ireland where I design with forward-thinking companies all over the world.

Clients include the BBC, Yellow Pages, blinkbox, Rupp, Asian Development Bank, Berthier Associates, and many others.

My first book, Logo Design Love: A Guide to Creating Iconic Brand Identities, is a bestseller in Amazon’s branding category, and is available in ten languages.

“Anyone involved in creating visual identities, or wanting to learn how to go about it, will find this book invaluable.”

People are often kind enough to share thoughts about working with me.

“We have been very impressed by David’s ability to literally read our minds and deliver a corporate identity which perfectly symbolizes our vision and conveys the stylish, elegant and modern image we needed to sustain the international development of our company.”

My second book, Work for Money, Design for Love, went on sale in November 2012 (now in seven languages).

I’ve appeared in magazines and books including Creative Review, Computer Arts, Esquire, HOW Magazine, Digital Arts, LogoLounge

My design blogs Logo Design Love and Identity Designed (and the one you’re on) are visited by more than 600,000 beautiful designers every month.

“I recommend David unequivocally and would hire him again in a heartbeat.”

If you want a new visual identity it’d be a pleasure to talk.
