Designer and Illustrator from London, Neil Stevens was inspired by old airline baggage tags and decided to recreate some big prints based on the idea of the tags. Well it turned out great, with strong use of colors and typography, check out these awesome that I'm calling Modern Flight Tag Prints.
It was recently that I stumbled on a lovely set of old airline baggage tags and was amazed at the variety in designs produced since the 1950s. There was something about the now iconic, easily reconisable three letter abbreviations of the city destinations, and the small surrounding details that I thought would look great blown up and on a wall. They often avoided logos, had no advertising, and were purely just the information you needed.
So with these graphic and typographic gems I decided to go ahead and turn them into large format wall prints. As with other ideas for prints that I have had, if they prove popular i'll make them available in my online shop this Spring. Enjoy!
