Self-described one-man studio Neil Stevens has an appreciation for vintage type, as do many of us designers. There’s something pure about it, free from extraneous effects or trendy design devices. This collection of flight tag prints by the London based designer/illustrator captures the essence of a bygone design era (and would make a great inspirational addition to our studio walls, I might add). In his own words: “Recently 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 recognizable 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.” Prints available here.
