Client - Quartz / United Airlines
Younger generations have a hard time conceiving of an age in which Wi-Fi, smartphone music playlists, and a vast array of TV shows and movies weren’t standard inflight options. But interviews with a generational cross-section of seasoned flyers about the diverse ways they’ve entertained themselves in the sky reveals that the concept of “inflight entertainment” is itself a fairly recent development. However, in spite of technological advancements, some of the pleasures of flying are timeless.
The purpose of this project is to showcase the evolution of 'United Airlines' and its tray table. From 1955 - 2015.
Six illustrations depicting its respective era from the point of view of a passenger, presented in the form of postcards.
