Fly TWA: New York Print
Graphic, gold-washed, vibrant, and vivacious, this vintage airline ad sums up its destination with classic allusions to some of the most commonly recognizable colors, textures and locales. It's a referential works of fantasy, stirring a desire to take to the skies—or hunker down in a retro day dream. This top-flight (heh) poster design was created for Trans World Airlines in the 1950s, aka the Golden Age of air travel. Airline advertisements at the time touted an in-flight journey that was just as luxurious as a vacation itself. Fly TWA: New York is a conduit to a serious nostalgia moment.
