Flight with DA - the Dallas Aerospace by Av3r Flight with DA - the Dallas Aerospace by Av3r
The Future was not the Future, back in the 50s and 60s: it was called TOMORROW.

With that in mind I designed this t-shirt reminding of old flight companies' posters (mainly PanAm) mixed with the classic and fascinating look of the "Past Future" or "The Future that Never Was".

This is an iconografic project, a really enjoying one for me!

Three colors, with also a funny reinterpretation of DA's Fella on the back in the style and tone of Hanna & Barbera's Studios!
NOTE: I did NOT use any autotracing tool or any similar aid. What you see was completely hand drawn starting from a marker sketch on a towel and then has been worked on digitally with only Photoshop (pen instrument and halftone filters). So, yes, it's all, in its entirely, a product of my imagination and design :)

And if you have problem reading what's written on the shirt, here's the transcription of the text I included on the image! I hope you'll enjoy it too, because I sure had a lot of fun writing it!

"Right on time!

Business meeting on Jupiter and then dinner at home with the family?
With us you can!

Dallas Aerospace
The fastest, safest and most advanced space fleet in the whole Galaxy!
Business men, families and space tourists from all over Earth have chosen us as their preferred travel companion, and more are joining!

Book a flight with DA today from your local Space Travel Agency, and you can win a sub-oceanic cruise under the North Pole and around the glorious ruins of Atlantis for all the family!

Dallas Aerospace has reduced catastrophic accidents trough the Van Allen Belt to a remarkable 29%. Also Deep Space Pneumonia, Black Hole Schizofrenia and Temporal Sub-Lobotomy have only occured in 21% of cases on randomly chosen passengers. Feel free to ask your local Doctor about the safety of Space Flight with DA: he knows, he's already a DA Client!"

BACK, under Fella
"Wherever Future's pointing, we're flying!"

Thank you!

Almost 80% of non-finalist designs should have won instead of those ignominous choices. But thank you very much :-)

It looks really good :D I can see you put in loads of effort and I like how you stuck to just a few colours.

(I voted on your cute monster design but saw you weren't taking comments so I also looked at this one...)

Votato! Tra quelli che ho visto fino ad ora è uno tra i design più originali e meglio realizzati, a mio parere (:
