AIRLINE VISUAL IDENTITY 1945-1975 - Matthias C. Hühne
Arguably no other book has been produced with such technical sophistication in recent years and few design books have received such an overwhelming worldwide media resonance. Airline Visual Identity 1945-1975 rounds up the most imaginative, influential and surprising designs of the airlines' commercial art from the “golden age of flying.” It provides an unprecedented, systematic outline of the development of the visual identities of thirteen pioneering airlines, combining innovative research and stunning, museum-like presentations of hundreds of spectacular aviation posters, photos and other illustrations.
Conceived by some of the world's top creative minds, such as Ivan Chermayeff, Otl Aicher, Massimo Vignelli, Academy Award winner Saul Bass, or advertising titan Mary Wells Lawrence, the designs found in the book's case studies also illustrate the shift from traditional methods of corporate design and advertising to comprehensive modern branding programs which took place in the same period.
