Sorry...nothing comes close to the Landor original. Why are you recycling their ideas? (logo, typeface). This is hardly a new design--or an improvement.

The last one is quite good - I especially like the shadowy bird on the tail.

The yellow engines design is too Icelandair, and the middle one is too dark.

Good work!

absolutely stunning liveries. I like the last one best. But suggest bigger title letters. Looking forward to what you can do with Alitalia.

Dear Greg,

Thanks for your reply. There are worse or let say there are less better colourschemes than Singapore Airlines, definitely. But we got a lot of inquiries from especially people from Singapore. They asked us to come up with a changement, so that's the reason we did it.

Dark one is best. First variation is too plain (like the flag on the tip of the fin btw), bottom one is a bit confused. Problem with dark colours is they make the plain look grungy and dirty if it isn't in bright daylight, like British Midland. Silver has the same effect - I could never understand why AA had silver planes cos I only ever saw them in the UK, ie under overcast weather. Then I saw them all shining under the bright Texas sun at DFW and went, "Ohhh, now I get it."

Zain Mirza, Ryan Powers and Norbert Lambriex - these names are made up, surely.

Why would our names be made up? I don't quite get that remark.

Thanks for your remarks everyone! I will be checking in from time to time.

Malaysia Airlines is very keen to revamp their entire corporate image to reflect a more Malaysian image. Did you see their planned but abandoned livery in blue and gold on their Australian website?

What about designing one for the Malaysians to think about as they are hoping to balance their sheets within 2 years with the current (new) management having decided that it may be possible to redesign their livery then.

ps...I think the gold belly is great on the SQA380

My issue was not with your talent, but that you didn't start with a clean slate. I think the colors/logo/typeface could all benefit from a more radical overhaul...not just an update. It would be interesting to see the designs you chose NOT to post. Chances are they were fair more original in concept (yes?).

Ah! Oh my god!!!! Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!
Ahhhhhh!!!! dsvxcsdf

Yes yes!

Hmmm

1st one:
Hmm. Looks like the old one!  Smile
Lovely, but it's time for a change.

2nd one:
A good try. A bit too much white though. Too straight.

3rd one:
Magnifico! It looks so damn good! Maybe a bit too blue for some but I love it. Great position for the bird at the front of the SlnGAPORE!

4th one:
What the hell is that! Oh dear! That is the BEST in my opinion. Great.
I love the shadow! That's the best!
Very Jubilee!

5th one:
5th? Whats he on about. This is my opinion!
The 4th one. Keep Everything. Take away the Singapore Airlines titles. Implant the 3rd one's Singapore Airlines titles. Fill above the gold swirly lines with the blue of the 3rd one. Keep the engines and wingtips. Get the bird in front of the title from the 3rd one and put it in. AND! GIGATOP. Wo! Où! Where? I suggest above the top windows as usual in Gold!

This is great. You know Airmale. He suggested something very similar to the 3rd one.

Great Air Orange. You're the best!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

With very very very warm and a grateful!

LOVELY!

The third one rules. Big thumbs up It looks like royalty. I can't wait until you get Alitalia. They really need your help.

Others that need your help are: Aerolineous Argentina, Iberia and please help Air Pacific.

Great job.

Hi, well for this airline Norbert asked me to use the same colors and font. I think for this scheme it was done that way because of time constaints. I only had a few hours last night to do mine. Also radical changes can sometimes back fire if it's too different because it takes time to get used to them. Some examples are the new Delta, BMI, and even our recent Qantas poll. Don't worry though because I am not affraid to go wild if I have the time, but it depends on the airline also.

At Lil Design Aviation, can anyone draw a colourscheme of an airline, would it be anyones, and make a poll of it on A.Net Discussion....?

I want to color a plane for an airline, and see how it goes,..... any details....?

Actually, none of the new proposals shown I like.  Sad The color coordination just looks too unusual compared to the current SQ livery.

The original SQ livery introduced in 1972 has withstood the test of time and looks great regardless of plane 29 years later.

I think we may see a Star Alliance Logo Jet for SQ on the first A380, then regular SQ livery on the rest of their A380 fleet.

p.s. Every time you post these great liveries I ask you to have a go at Air France!! PLEASE have a go!! That has to be one of the most dated liveries in the skies today!!

I think that SIA's current livery looks pretty nice on the Airbus A380. According to me, there's no need to change the livery at all.

Anyway, nice poll.

I love the 3rd and fourth liveries. They are great. I love to see on what you'll do with Alitalia's next. By they way; JAL's paint scheme is way too white but don't change the logo. I love their crane. But can you give the plane a new look and integrate their logo with the paint scheme? One more thing. Any possiblility if you can do anything with Eastern Airlines if they were still around? Thanks

These concepts never fail to impress me, absolutely spectacular. I like the third color scheme the best, but as previously said, I think the titles should be a bit larger. The shadowed bird is a very classy addition, I really like it. The second livery somewhat reminds me of SunCountry's new livery.

Hey Air Orange,

Those are excellent, as usual.
I would have to say that my favorite would have to be the forth (last) illustration. I do like the third one as well.
I hope SQ takes your designs to heart. I like the use of color on planes. There is too much white on world fleets these days. Amen.
Again, GREAT job!!!!

The last scheme! Plenty of color on it, just enough for the A380 and it looks very modern (the livery)

No # 4 is brilliant.

However I thought the re-design jobs on the Qantas aircraft were much better.

Nu. 3 & 4

Thu Apr 26, 2001 11:20 am

Well done.... they are all good. As people have noted, a mix of number 3 and 4 would produce an outstanding livery. This is what I think
- Gold Jubilee stripes
- larger "SINGAPORE AIRLINES" titles
- larger logo on tail with shadow
- logo in front of SIA titles
- more gold on engines.

Or, If it were me. I would like to see an all gold fuselage with light blue jubilee stripes and light blue large "SINGAPORE AIRLINES" titles with light blue engines and light blue background to tail with SIA bird.

Well done!!

I still think I like the original Landor design.
The 4th design isn't bad, but I'm not sure it will stand the test of time. I did like what you guys proposed for KLM and Qantas though.

The Alitalia design is still a classic - much like the little black dress, dom perignon, and chanel # 5.

Airlines that need a livery change include JAL, Air India (now that would be a challenge !) and BA - the union jack design is just plain awful.

I am sorry to say that this design house is just hopeless. If you look at their Qantas upgrades.. they are just pathetic. I still like the Landor design. IT lasted time.

I don't know about the whole thing, but the shadow of the bird on the 4th scheme looks good.
As for all the users who say the orignial is still the best, maybe we've gotten used to the current scheme. I think it's time for a change and I'll bet my mortgage that SQ will introduce a new image along with A380 launch if they haven't done anything to their livery prior to its delivery.

I'd prefer a mix of the first graphic (current coporate identity) and the fourth proposal: Take the fuselage colours of the fourth and combine with the classic tail of the first (current) colour scheme.

SIA current livery is a bit old. In some 744 and 777 looks OK but still needs a new facelift.
The 2nd one is awful!!! Nothing close to the original one.
3rd sucks too. Too dark!! The combination of gold and dark blue is not fitting.
4th is good but, still something is strange. Maybe some classic rounded lines like the jubilee livery and different kinds of gold and blue mixed would work. The shaded bird on the tail is great. Keep that fo sure.
Anyway, very good job...

I hope to see some polls of ANA, Korean Air, Aerolineas Argentinas and VASP. VAsp really needs help!!!!!!!!
