Paris Traveler Series by illustrators Nichole and Evan Robertson is a set of prints inspired by the classic travel posters. They added a little, but brilliant twist to the idea though, choosing not to focus on architectural landmarks like travel posters do, but rather to focus on the moment that makes these places memorable, with the architecture serving as a backdrop. Prints are available on their Etsy shop.
Perennial Plate’s short film “A Day in India” compresses his three weeks of travel in India to a day and then just four minutes.
Evacuated Tube Transport is the future of travel, or that is what the designers would have us believe. According to designers, this would be an airless, frictionless tube through which passenger carrying pods would be able to travel real fast. When we say “real fast” we mean a speed of 4000 mph that would theoretically allow passengers to make a trip around the world in a mere six hours.
Retro posters for an airline of the future, the premise is quite interesting. And made more so by our desire for space travel. An airline to Mars. How cool would that be? Chicago-based artist, illustrator and graphic designer Andy Rohr got the idea and started to work, with a rocket called MarsUnited. The posters show the journey of MarsUnited in a very alluring way. Now if it were all just real.
If locations in videogames could be advertised as tourism or getaway destinations, they sure would make pretty weird posters. I think the mushroom kingdom would be a nice place to be in.
