Airside is a thoroughly modern design agency. It does a bit of everything - graphic design, illustration, animation, websites and TV commercials. The likes of Nike, Orange, MTV and Sony have all been through the Airside doors. Not bad for a creative collective founded by three idealistic freelancers who wanted to "get nice work and do nice work."

"We started off as a digital agency," explains Airside's managing director and co-founder Nat Hunter. "We then moved into doing quite a lot of animation, and we got distracted from digital by doing a lot of broadcast animation." Airside's work for Japanese courier firm Sagawa Express is a good example. They were hired to produce a variety of different animated sequences for the client, featuring an updated version of Sagawa's 'hikyaku' (foot courier) logo running through Japan to deliver a package.
