Alexander Isley Inc. is an established design consultancy with a reputation for developing memorable and effective brand personalities and introducing them to the public. We specialize in working with organizations involved in education, entertainment, and culture.

We have particular expertise in creating engaging retail brand experiences and in working with youth audiences.

The firm was founded in 1988 by Alexander Isley in New York City. We have grown to a nine-person consultancy with our main office in Fairfield County, Connecticut, a location that gives us the perfect balance between city access (good for the brain) and fresh air (even better for the brain).

We have received recognition and numerous awards in the fields of corporate identity, marketing communications, publication design, architectural signage, retail merchandising, packaging, and exhibit design. We work among all of these disciplines to craft programs that convey a consistent voice, attitude, and point of view for our clients.

Our accomplished team of strategists and designers has created effective, memorable, and valuable work for a diverse range of clients including the City of New York, A|X Armani Exchange, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, the Brooklyn Academy of Music, Reebok International Ltd., the Robin Hood Foundation, the U.S. Green Building Council, Starbucks, Accenture, the Museum of the Moving Image, the United States Information Agency, the National Endowment for the Arts, Toys “R” Us, and Girl Scouts of the USA.



While our clients and their needs are varied, what they share in common is a belief in what they have to offer and the desire for us to help them communicate their message in compelling and effective ways.

Examples of our work are represented in the collections of the Cooper-Hewitt (the Smithsonian Institution’s National Design Museum), The Museum of Modern Art, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Denver Art Museum, the Library of Congress, and the YCS Design Library in Japan.

Our firm’s work has also been exhibited at the Centre Georges Pompidou and the New York Art Directors Club.

We offer expertise in strategic planning and design while overseeing all aspects of production and implementation. In addition to the staff design group, our firm has in-house account, writing, and marketing support. We maintain a client roster that is balanced in size and scope, enabling us to provide attentive and customized client service and therefore enjoy the opportunity to produce outstanding work.
