I’m your host, David Airey, a graphic designer in Northern Ireland. I opened my independent studio in 2005 and I’ve been designing logos (and a few design books) ever since.

If you’d like to subscribe for fairly infrequent updates (every few months), that’d be splendid.

The Logo Design Love book came about after Nikki McDonald (then senior acquisitions editor at US publisher Peachpit) emailed out of the blue to ask if I’d write with them. Her email arrived just one year after this website was launched, back when I wasn’t thinking about writing for print. Since the book was published a number of my design clients have found me after picking up various translations in overseas bookstores. Funny how these things come about.

Please do send a message to share some logo-related news you think would make an interesting feature. Due to my unwieldy inbox I can’t always reply, but I do read and respond to as many messages as I can.


Should you need help with a logo or identity project you’re most welcome to browse my portfolio. If I’m not the right fit I’ll do what I can to pair you with a designer or studio who is.
