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
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.
