After reading the thread about the top 10 liveries of 2013, which is interesting to read everyone's reaction, what do we consider the BEST OF ALL
TIME? Some of the best IMHO are the ones that are either airlines no longer with us or the ones that got painted over or the ones that have stood the test of time.
In my opinion Singapore and Alitalia are two that have really stood the time test. KLM and even LH
have too. For me I keep two at the very top: PanAm's globe symbol is probably one of mankinds most powerful icons. Beautifully designed, just a globe yes, but the one and only globe. It's sky blue color, the interpretation of L&L lines and wind swept letter forms are forever. Even Marc Jacobs recreated a line of bags and luggage in homage. It transcends it's use as a company logo and entered culture and fashion. And, while a bit self serving as I work for LANDOR, the British Aiways LANDOR livery still ranks as the most classy and sleek livery ever. Copied many times but never beaten. And I will also say the skies are sadder without the Saul Bass' United livery. It was strategically perfect to match "the Friendly Skies" brand line. (yes, we all know they have a long way to go to earn that livery back). But think of the outrage over the death of the tulip...even for an airline with major reputation issues!
What are the top 10 ever? (for me)
