I'm not a professional designer by any means; I just dawdle in In-Design and happen to be an airplane geek. Last night, I thought I might try to design a livery for "Petrel Air," a fictional carrier based in St. John's that flies across the Atlantic and over the U.S. border (ergo the blue and green flags you see straddling the gold star). Do you like the livery? If so, why not? I'd love to hear your thoughts.

Well, to do the fuselage, I would have to graphically portray a plane. That's easier said than done. I'll try to look over some photos of an A330 or a 757, but the "Flugzeugrumpf" could take a while.
With the design itself, I wanted to give it some abstraction while avoiding the "let's just paint swirly lines on it" mentality that so many airlines have gone through. The blue and green flags retain some symbolism as the Atlantic Ocean and the Canada/US border, which Petrel Air would cross.
