San Francisco - United Airlines, 1967 ca.
With the rise of fast and inexpensive flights in the Fifties and Sixties, United Airlines turned to top designers to create a consumer-friendly image for its tourist destinations.
This Mid-Sixties poster highlighting San Francisco's attractions captures the youthful playfulness of the era through vibrant color and whimsical design. A rich silkscreen, the cubistic montage explodes off the page. Even the herringbone suit of the trolley rider is electric! A clever, well designed image, worthy of Mad Men.
