Design: Vintage Travel Posters

Occasionally I make the point that the loss of good print packaging or promotion is a terrible, terrible thing. We need well-designed visual cues to prompt us. Take these posters for example, beautifully designed, beautifully printed, these make me want to go to Miami, Austria and even Canada. Sure, there’s some nostalgia envolved here but good design appeals to everyone, even if they know it or not.  I love the fact that we can do everything online and don’t even need a Travel Agent, but c’mon, these are beautiful and necessary. The only place you’ll see anything like this anymore is as an expensive design element on someone’s wall. At least they’re being appreciated so many years later.
